How much do you charge?
My professional fee is $165 per hour for individuals, $250 per hour for couples and $200 per hour for online coaching. Depending on financial need and availability, I offer a sliding scale so please call to discuss fees.
If you have PPO Health Insurance or a Health Savings Account you may receive reimbursement through your insurance provider. I can provide you with an invoice for these purposes.
I accept credit card, cash or check.
Do you accept insurance?
No. I do not bill any insurance directly.
I do encourage all my clients to speak with their insurance company about reimbursement for some portion of therapy.
Many people are unaware that they have this benefit and insurance plans can sometimes reimburse anywhere from 40%-70% of each session.
Can I get a receipt?
If you would like a record of payment to submit for reimbursement, please let me know.
Invoices are created on a monthly basis.
How long is each session?
Generally we meet for 50 minutes once a week.
Therapy is a commitment you make to yourself so the consistency and frequency are important for building a strong foundation.
90-minute sessions and 1 day intensives are available on request – and the 90-minute sessions are sometimes recommended for couples.
What if I need to reschedule?
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
I request that you give 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule a session. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the fee.
How long do I need to be in therapy?
The length of therapy differs for each person and depends on many factors.
My goal is for therapy to be as brief as possible, however the length can sometimes depend on the problem we are working with and your commitment to the process.
Because a positive working relationship between the client and therapist is crucial to long-term success, I initially recommend coming in for at least 6 sessions to explore and define our goals.
Most of my clients are in therapy for around 6 months, and some for longer periods of time as well.
Do you do sessions over Face Time or Skype?
Normally I meet with clients in my office, however I will occasionally offer FaceTime, Skype or phone session if the need arises.
