Frequently asked questions

  1. How do I schedule an appointment?
    The best way to schedule is to click on the BOOK NOW button at the top of the page. This gives you a confirmation and appointment reminder message prior to your session. If you would prefer you can call to set up an appointment as well.
  2. What will happen at my first appointment?
    During your first session I will work to understand your needs and we will begin to develop a relationship and determine the best design for meeting (i.e. individually, as a couple or family. Also, we will discuss a meeting plan and fees for the sessions or needed assessments, reports or consultations.
  3. How much does therapy cost?
    When you click on the BOOK NOW button and schedule an appointment, the fee is very clear for each of the services. Phone consults are free and a good way to determine if setting up an appointment is in your best interest. Initial intake appointments = $150 for 60-70 minute session. Subsequent appointments = $125 for 50 minute sessions.
  4. Do you accept insurance?
    I am in In-Network provider for Anthem BC/BS. I am an out-of-network provider for many insurance companies. This means that I do not bill them directly. Call your insurance company directly to determine if and what behavioral health benefits you may have for therapy.
  5. Reasons to pay privately or "Out of Pocket"
    In order to bill under insurance, you must have a diagnosis for the clinician to get reimbursed. This poses a dilemma for those wishing for the highest level of privacy. Also, many insurance companies do cover couples or family counseling and limit the number of sessions they may cover. Life insurance policy implications and custody determination may have some relevancy in this regard.
  6. What is your cancellation policy?
    Because people's lives are busy and typically 50-55 minutes is scheduled for most sessions, it is important to cancel at least 24 hours in advance to allow time to follow up with another client. Death and inclement weather are obvious exceptions to this policy. However, not providing 24 hours notice will result in a $50 first time fee and full fee on subsequent appointments.
