FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GETTING STARTED

 

What is better scheduling a first full appointment or a consultation? 

A 30-minute consultation is good for you if you want to explain in a little more detail than an email can hold about why you are coming to therapy . It allows you to meet me, see where my office is located, and it allows us both to determine if working together makes sense.

 

If you’ve read enough on my website to feel comfortable scheduling that first appointment, we can do that via phone or email. I’ll send you a link to my client portal to fill out forms prior to appointment.

 

How much is a session?

My sessions are approximately 50-minutes with a fee of $130. The fee is due the day of your session. I accept cash, check, HSA cards, and most major credit cards.

 

How often will I come to therapy? 

Starting therapy successfully involves consistency and building a good working relationship with your therapist – me. It takes time for trust to develop. That said, weekly is best or every 2 weeks if time and/or finances make this schedule more workable for you. If you are currently in crisis, I recommend twice a week.

 

What about Insurance?

My services are often covered under many out-of-network insurance plans, however, I do not accept insurance in office. I can provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if your plan offers out-of-network benefits.

 

Some questions to ask your insurance company to determine if reimbursement is an option:

  • Does the plan include “out-of-network” outpatient mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and have I met it?
  • Is there a limit to how many services a year the plan will cover?
  • Do I need a referral from my primary care doctor?
  • What is the reimbursement amount per therapy session?
  • How do I submit invoices and when do I typically receive reimbursement?

 

How long will I come to therapy?

How long you stay in therapy depends on you. Some people see a degree of symptom relief after the first 30 days. For sustainable change, 6 months to a year or longer is more realistic.

 

I find that focusing on the process is more important than a focus on time. Remember, the behaviors you are trying to change have probably existed for a long time. Impatience is not a productive or kind partner to change. And I firmly believe that change is possible for everyone.
