How much does a therapy session cost?
The fee for a 50 minute session, whether in-person, via phone, or online, is $160, and $210 for a 90 minute session. Payment is made at the end of each session. I accept cash, check, credit or HSA/flex spending accounts. Therapy is an investment in the best version of you, your relationships, and your family. I am dedicated to making the most of our time together to provide you with a more immediate sense of relief while keeping costs down over time. If my fee is more than you can afford, please contact me to discuss my limited slots that are offered at a reduced rate based on income.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider. To determine if your insurance coverage includes outpatient therapy sessions with an out-of-network provider, contact your insurance company directly by calling the customer service number found online or on the back of your insurance card. If you choose to use your insurance, you would pay me directly and I would provide you with a super-bill that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How many sessions will it take?
The number of sessions required to experience relief and improvement is different based on each client’s unique needs. Typically, progress, if not recovery, is achieved within 8-12 sessions. This timeframe can be accelerated with the implementation of assignments that client’s complete between sessions.
How often will we meet?
I am dedicated to meeting the individual needs of my clients and offer many different options for session frequency. I most often recommend clients attend therapy once per week to experience more immediate results. As progress is made, sessions are often extended to every two weeks, or as often as needed.
How do we get started?
The first step is to contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and to determine whether my style and expertise can be of help to you. If we both feel we are a good match, we will set up an initial appointment for you to come into my office so we can get to know each other better in person.
I understand that speaking to someone new about personal challenges can be difficult. Above and beyond all else, I believe it is my most important job in the first session to create a safe, comfortable environment for clients to explore their struggles openly. I strive to work at the pace that each individual client is comfortable with.
Some of the topics we will explore in our first session will include reasons for seeking therapy at this time, reviewing each participant’s perspective of the problem, identifying unmet needs, and formulating goals and a plan for our time together.
