Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Will It Cost?

 

  • My fee is $160 per 50-minute session. Extended time is prorated based on the hourly fee. 
  • I accept cash and check as payment at the beginning of the session.

 

  • SLIDING SCALE

I believe access to affordable, quality counseling should be available to everyone. I have a few sliding scale spots available, please inquire about availability. If all the slots are filled, please apply anyway and I will put you on the waitlist. For the application, please click on Reduced Fee Form .

What If I Need To Reschedule?

 

  • I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you miss, cancel or reschedule your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full fee. Please understand you and I are both investing in your health, so if you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, we both will miss out in some way or another. 
  • If you are arriving late, please call or text me.
  • If you cannot meet-in person but can have a phone or video session during your appointment time please call / text me. 

 

 

How Often Will We Meet?

 

  • Therapy is most beneficial when there's consistency and continuity, so I meet with clients weekly.  

How Long Will I Be In Therapy?

 

  • As much as I would like to give you a direct answer, it's helpful to remember that therapy is not a linear process. In my experience, therapy generally lasts anywhere from 6 months to a few years. The likelihood of you gettiing what you need out of therapy as quickly as possible really depends on a variety of factors such as complexity of issue(s), the time and effort put in, and other unforseen elements. My goal is that our work together helps you feel empowered to make decisions that feel right for you. 

Will My Therapist Be Angry If I Switch To Another Practitioner?

 

  • The answer to this question is no. I am a professional and I have your best interest at heart. Any decision to switch therapists can be explored and I would like to have the opportunity to do so with you. 

Do You Accept Insurance?

 

  • don't currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage. I recommend to call your insurance company to confirm coverage. 

Does therapy involve physical touch?

 

  • The use of touch varies. Some therapists may pat or hug a patient as a sign of support or comfort. However, physical touch is powerful and should NEVER be sexualized. Kissing, excessive touching and sexual activity have no place in therapy.
