What to expect when therapy begins

During your first visit, we will discuss what brings you to therapy, what changes you would like to see you in your life, and how I can help you achieve the life that you have envisioned. I will also get important information from you about your history, so that I can begin to paint of picture of who you are and what brings you to therapy. During this time I will also discuss office policies and this is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have.

Fees

$100 for 50 minute therapy session and $125 for 80 minute couples session.

Payments are due at the time of service. Cash, check, and credit card are all accepted forms of payment.

Insurance

I am not contracted with any insurance companies. I currently work as an “Out of Network” provider, which means that if you have a PPO plan, I can provide you with a receipt for services rendered that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement consideration.  Although many insurance companies reimburse for therapy with a receipt, I cannot guarantee reimbursement. Payment for therapy must be made at the time of the appointment.

If you plan to use insurance, I encourage you to check with your insurance carrier to determine what mental health benefits you have.  You may want to ask the following questions?

  • How many sessions per year does my plan cover?
  • What is my deductible?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

How do we start?

The first step is to call me for a free phone consultation. We will discuss your interest in starting therapy and how I may help you. During this time, I will answer any questions that you may have.
