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, AETNA at the present. You have to be willing to have a diagnosis for insurance when using your insurance which some have opted to not do.
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 55 min. in length with exception of coaching sessions that are for 45 minutes.
Extended sessions are either 90-minute or 2 hours.
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.
My rates are as follows:
55-minute session- individual rate is $130.00. Marriage or family sessions are $140 for the same 55-minute session. Extended sessions are $170 for an hour and 1/2 time.
I offer some sliding fee scales for those who would be unable to pay full fees on a limited basis quarterly. I prefer to take Venmo or Zelle, but also offer Visa, Mastercard, Discover
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, it can be made up within that week without a fee.
If you arrive late for a session, you will be only able to have the balance of time for the 55- minute session.
Confidentiality is always honored for all sessions.
