Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if you are the right fit for me/us?
I completely understand the question. It is strange to be searching online for a therapist. Therapy is an investment and so is your relationship. If you are on this page, you probably care about your relationships deeply and desire some ease and direction. I typically work with clients who are longing for deep and satisfying relationships - with themselves and their partner. The clients I am the best therapist for are the ones that are wanting more for their relationships and willing to take a step back to observe their own patterns.
You can learn more about me here or read a few of my blogs. I also offer free 15 minute phone consultations to answer any questions you might have about the process or my style. You can schedule the consultation here. If at any point I acknowledge that another therapist may be a better fit for you due to expertise, training, or just general fit, I will check in with you and provide referrals.
How long do sessions last?
It depends on the type of therapy!
For couples or family therapy, each session is 80 minutes.
For individual therapy, the first session is 80 minutes and each additional session is 50 minutes.
I typically meet with clients weekly for about 8-12 sessions. Once you decide that your goals were met or you are moving towards the direction you want, you can always choose to end having weekly sessions. Many clients transition to meeting bi-weekly or monthly to check-in.
Do you provide online therapy over video chat (tele-therapy)?
Yes, I offer tele-therapy from the comfort of your own space. Research has found that tele-therapy has been just as effective as in-person sessions. It is also a convenient option for many couples and individuals. Trust me, you will get my personality and be just as engaged in the session than in my office.
*Due to COVID-19, I am only offering sessions via tele-therapy using a secure video system until further notice.
What are the fees?
It depends on whether you are seeking individual, couples/family, or pre-marital therapy as well as the length of the session!
Initial 80 min session = $175
Each 50 min session = $125
Initial and each 80 min session = $175
6 session package = $750
Your card will be charged through the secure client portal at the end of each session.
What is your availability?
My weekly availability includes evening and weekend options.
When we meet for the first time, we will typically choose a weekly time for future sessions to get us started with the most momentum.
As a client, you will always have access to scheduling online through the client portal.
Do you accept insurance?
No, I do not accept insurance. Your card will be charged in full at the end of each session.
I can provide a receipt of services (superbill) as a out of network provider for you to submit to your insurance company. The superbill requires your information and for me to provide a mental health diagnosis. I recommend reaching out to your insurance provider.
Some questions to ask your insurance carrier:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What type of therapy does it cover? (individual, couples, specific theory, etc)
- What is my deductible?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- How much will be reimbursed for an out-of-network provider?
