WHAT TO EXECT
You are welcome to be a mess here, to be yourself. You are free to wrestle with your present realities, or grieve your losses, or weep for the ways you wish it was different, or admit the ways you try to numb the pain, or challenge yourself to tell the truth—or just breathe.
OUR FIRST SESSION
Contact me to set up your first apointment. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation so feel free to call, get to know me a little, get any questions answered and from there we can decide if we would be a good fit working together.
Prior to our first session fill out the three New Client Forms found on the Forms page.
We'll meet for our first session and at the end discuss the frequency of our subsequent sessions as well as answer any further questions you may have about the therapy process.
Sessions are 50 minutes, at $140 per session. Fees are payable in cash, check or card at the beginning of each appointment.
I am in-network with the First Choice Health PPO insurance plan. For clients on other plans, I can offer all the necessary paperwork in order to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Often, plans will reimburse for my services at the “out-of-network” provider rate. The best thing you can do is call and ask your insurance company how much they will reimburse- sometimes it is as hight as 75%. Each insurance plan offers different benefits so please check your specific coverage for details.
You can inquire to your insurance by asking these questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Please know that if we do use your insurance for reimbursement, I will need to use a diagnosis code. Some people prefer not to use insurance so that a diagnosis code will not be shared with their insurance company.
If you do not show for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
I offer a reduced fee for one client at a time. If you cannot afford my full fee but would like to pursue counseling, ask about the reduced fee option.
