Fees & FAQQuestions & Answers

  • What does a session cost?

  • $125 session.  
  • Do you accept credit cards?

    Yes.  Form of payment can be any major credit card, debit card, cash, or check.
  • What is your cancellation policy?

    If you must cancel an appointment a 24 hour advanced notice is required to avoid charges for your reserved time.  Fees cover your reserved appointment time with your therapist and are not contingent upon your attendance.

  • Do you take insurance?

    No.  I do not work directly with insurance.  Due to the reporting requirements, limits on treatment, and the intrusion upon client’s privacy by the managed care systems I choose not to accept insurance co-pays.  I will, upon request, provide you with a Super Bill to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.  Do check with your insurance to determine if this is an option for you.

  • How long is the therapy session?  

    Typically, an *hour session is 50 minutes, 1-1/2 hour session is 80 minutes.
    *A therapeutic hour includes 50 minutes scheduled session time, note writing, brief telephone contact, and confidential professional consultations if necessary.  

  • Do you offer evening appointments?

    Yes, to accommodate those who have daytime commitments to work and family. Normal scheduling is afternoon appointments with some evening appointments available.

  • What's the first session like?

    The initial session is typically an hour. I will ask you to share your reasons for seeking counseling and what you would like to accomplish…your goals for counseling. Often the therapeutic work begins in the very first session. I will discuss with you my insights and recommendations, and together we will make a plan to achieve your goals.
