What can I expect at my first session?
Your first appointment will give you an opportunity to share what brings you to therapy. We will discuss ware you are currently what your goals are for change, and we will develop a plan to help you meet your goals for the future. We will discuss new strategies, things you may have already tried to improve things on your own and develop an individual plan for moving forward and better manage your situation.
What are my fees?
Clients are typically seen once a week for a 50 minute session. Couples and family session are typically 90 minutes. Fifty minute sessions are $100 an 90 minute sessions are $150. Payment can be made by cash, credit card or check. Payment is due at the time of the session. If you are using your insurance I will do the billing and your co-pay is due at the time of the session.
Are the session confidential?
Yes, everything we discuss is confidential. The therapeutic relationship is built on trust and a supportive, safe environment to grow and learn about yourself. The exceptions to confidentiality or times when I would need to involve a third party include my learning about plans to harm yourself or another person or the abuse of a child or dependent adult.
Do I accept Insurance?
I do accept insurance and can also bill as an out-of-network provider for may PPO plans. Please be prepared to pay your copay at the time of the session. If you have a deductible to be met, you will pay the full session fee until your deductible is reached, at which time you will begin to pay only your co-pay. It is necessary to call your insurance and get all of the information prior to your first session
