Scheduling and Hours
How can I schedule an appointment?
What happens once we schedule an appointment?
There will be a short form to fill out, HIPPA information on confidentiality, and we will talk about your specific situation and what you’d like help with in therapy. We will each have a chance to ask questions and see what you’ve tried in the past, what has been helpful and what has not. By the end of the first session, we will both know if we would like to move forward with a plan for counseling.
What are your hours?
Weekdays between 7AM-7PM with flexibility for scheduling during lunchtime or early mornings.
Check with me if you have time restrictions to see if there are times available to fit your schedule.
Insurance & Payment
Do you take insurance?
I am contracted with CIGNA and MEDICARE.
What is the self-pay charge for therapy?
$175.00 per session (typically 50 minutes) for individual therapy, couples, or families.
Therapy may also be scheduled for an extended session as needed on a prorated basis.
I do have a limited number of sliding scale slots for individuals; feel free to ask if you qualify for one of these.
Fees which are generally not covered by insurance include travel time to meet with a student at school or alternative location and charges for sessions which are missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
What to Expect
How long does therapy take?
This is highly individual, as it depends on your specific circumstances, struggles and wishes. Clients who need specific short term help through a crisis may benefit tremendously from as few as 4-6 sessions; others who are looking to heal from abuse, improve mood and functioning may benefit from counseling support for several months or longer. You will have the ability at all times to fine tune your goals and redirect the course of your therapy to meet your specific timeframes and needs.
With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.
