Counseling: Counseling provides a unique professional relationship in which to collaborate with an unbiased person regarding the specificities of your life. Within this relationship, a wide variety of issues may be addressed, goals determined, hurdles jumped, and freedoms regained. Some of my specialties include:
- adolescents, teens, and young adults
- emotional abuse
- family of origin issues
- only child related issues
- therapist to other therapists
- women’s issues and life transitions
- young adult children of late-life parental divorce
Fees/Rates: $135 for 50-minute session. Additionally, I offer a limited number of reduced-fee services and am willing to discuss these options with clients as needed. As your appointment time is reserved exclusively for you, I require a 24-hour notice for cancellations to avoid being charged the full session fee.
Intake Forms: To better know you and your unique situation, I prefer to engage in a short phone conversation prior to our first appointment. This helps to let you know me a little more and make sure I can best serve you. Once we have talked, I will email you the appropriate intake forms for you to fill out prior to our first session.
Insurance: Insurance companies pose many hurdles regarding confidentiality, fees, and confines to therapeutic interventions. For clients best benefit and treatment, I have elected to not take insurance. In this case, I am then considered an out-of-network provider. I am happy to provide you with a receipt that you can directly submit to your insurance company. To determine if you are eligible for reimbursement, ask your insurance company the following:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- How much do you pay for an out-of-network provider?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
