How do we get started?
Call or email me to set up your first appointment and ask any questions to determine if we're a good fit.
Here are some of the questions I may ask: What brings you to therapy? Have you ever had therapy before? What are you looking to get from therapy?
How often will we meet & how long will therapy last?
Therapy sessions are scheduled weekly and last approximately 50 minutes. Meeting weekly, especially in the beginning is important because it can take a few sessions to establish a relationship and get to know one another. From there, we can determine how often we'll meet based on your needs.
My approach is insight-oriented, meaning that therapy generally is longer-term. I have worked with people as little as three months and over a period of years. The length of time you commit to therapy is up to you, and how long it takes depends on your goals and many other factors.
How much is therapy & how do I pay?
My rate is $180 per session. I also offer a sliding scale for qualifying individuals.
I do not work with insurance panels; however, I can provide you with a monthly Superbill that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Contact your insurance provider to ask about their Superbill reimbursement policy.
I accept cash, checks, or Venmo.
Do you offer online therapy / therapy by phone?
Yes, I do offer therapy by video (Zoom) and therapy by phone for people who, for whatever reasons, have a difficult time coming into my office. To get more information about online therapy and therapy by phone, please contact me.
