Frequently Asked Questions

 

HOW MUCH DO SESSIONS COST?

My session fee is $175 for 50 minutes.

 

WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD THAT?

I do have a limited number of low-fee slots available for those experiencing financial hardship. If these slots are full, I can provide referrals for affordable therapy. Please call for availability and to find out if this policy applies to you.

 

WHAT PAYMENT TYPES DO YOU ACCEPT? WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE?

Payments may be made by cash, check or credit card. I do not bill insurance directly, however, I can provide documents for you to submit for reimbursement, as I am an “out-of-network provider”. I request payment at the end of each session.

 

HOW LONG ARE SESSIONS?

Sessions last 50 minutes. I offer longer sessions if needed.

 

HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?

Ideally, we will meet once a week. Based on your goals and needs, we can adjust session frequency.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL?

I do request that cancellations be made 24 hours before your appointment to avoid incurring my session fee.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M RUNNING LATE?

It happens. I will hold your session time and we will begin as soon as you arrive. I am not able to prorate session fees.

 

DO YOU OFFER SKYPE, PHONE OR IN-HOME VISITS?

Yes, I do. If you are away from home and do not want to miss a session, I can offer appointments via phone or over a HIPAA-compliant video platform similar to Skype (VSee). In the event of child birth or recent injury/surgery, I do offer home visits for current clients. These appointments typically must be made at least 48 hours in advance. I am unable to offer initial intakes for new clients in-home.

 

I HAVE A PSYCHIATRIST, DIETITIAN, OR OTHER PROVIDER. WILL YOU WORK WITH THEM?

Yes. I am happy to collaborate with other providers and work as part of a treatment team. I have releases available for your signature that allow me to communicate with professionals of your choice.

 

I’M READY TO GET STARTED. WHAT’S NEXT?
