I utilize counseling methods to access the rooted emotions that hinder your behavior. If you come in as a couple I see the clients for several sessions to understand the rooted issues, and then break up the couple to do individual and refer the partner out.
This work is a shorter term than other types of therapy. Usually, a person can see significant changes in two to six months, and sometimes in just a few sessions.
For anyone considering working together, I offer a 20-minute complimentary session (see the choices below)
1) You may schedule a complimentary 20-minute session to discuss what you are looking for and see if it feels like a fit. We can identify various methods to treat your problems. This can be done either in person or by phone.
2) You may also use the consultation a 20-minutes towards your first session, in which case we would likely begin with a conversation addressing your issues. We would then discuss the plan to begin working together.
Finding the right fit in a therapist is important, so if you feel after the initial sessions it’s not a fit I can refer you to another practitioner.
In Person or By Phone:
Sessions can be done either in person or by phone. I utilize Zoom to offer online sessions. either long-distance or in person.
Fees and Insurance
We are contracted with one provider, Cigna, at the present. You have to be willing to have a diagnosis for insurance when using your insurance.
We also offer insurance benefits for those who have mental health coverage for out-of-network options and have met their deductible. I provide a medical receipt with a diagnosis to file through your insurance. It would be best to check beforehand with your insurance carrier to know what your benefits are for out-of-network. In addition, coverage includes a health savings account (HSA).
Sessions are generally 50-60 min. in length with exception of coaching sessions that are for 45 minutes.
The sessions are 55 min unless using insurance or EAP which are around 45 – 50 minutes.
$125.00 for self-paying sessions as of January 2022
Couples are $130.00
Extended sessions of 90 minutes – $160.00
Package rates start with 5 sessions and are offered at a slightly discounted rate as stated above. The packages for coaching are for 3 months or 6 months. I can offer a package that meets your individual needs, which we can discuss after our initial consult. Extended sessions are offered for those from out of town or at a distance.
I offer some sliding fee scales for those who would be unable to pay full fees on a limited basis quarterly. I take Visa, Mastercard, Discover Zelle, and Venmo.
All sessions must be canceled within 48 hours. If the cancellation is less than 48 hours, it will be counted as 1/2 the regular session rate (with the exception of packages). When canceling the session can be made up within that week without a fee.
Confidentiality is always honored for all sessions.
