Below are topics frequently asked about. Please contact me with any additional questions or concerns.
Fees and Payment
Please contact me directly to discuss fees.
Payment is accepted each session in the form or cash, check, credit card, or Venmo.
A receipt of payment will be provided to you at the end of each month.
I am not a participating provider on any insurance plan; however, I will provide you with all necessary receipts and documentation to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
Length of sessions and treatment
In couples therapy our initial meeting will last approximately 90 minutes and subsequent session are typically 60 minutes long. In individual therapy our initial meeting will last approximately 60 minutes and subsequent sessions are 45-50 minutes in length.
Length of treatment can vary greatly depending on the issues at hand. Sometimes, a short-term treatment is appropriate for discreet problems. In other cases, long-term treatments are more appropriate for chronic struggles or multifaceted treatment issues. Together we can decide what works for you and your life circumstances. Typically I like to start treatment meeting weekly to maximize consistency and treatment gains. As treatment continues we can discuss changing the frequency of our sessions.
Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy
If you need to cancel or reschedule a session I require at least 24 hours notice. Without this notice you will be expected to pay the full fee of the session.
I am not a medical doctor and therefore cannot prescribe medication. Together we can discuss whether medication may be beneficial to you and I can refer you to a psychiatrist. If you are already seeing a psychiatrist, I will ask for your written permission to speak to him or her in order to maintain a unified treatment approach.
