+ How much is the fee for out-of-pocket sessions?
A typical weekly session is $120 for individual therapy. Packages are available: 12 weeks for $1450 or 8 weeks for $980 or 4 weeks for $495. Family therapy sessions are $150 at this time, family is whoever you define that to be (limit for 4 people in a session).
+ How long does it take?
Each session is 50 minutes in duration. The amount of sessions depends on your wants and needs, however I do ask that clients attended more than the initial intake session. I typically have clients start weekly and move them to bi-weekly as they progress and then monthly until sessions can be terminated based the progress and mental health of the client.
+ What do I need to bring to the first session?
The Informed Consent package and your form of payment/insurance form which I will email you when you schedule your first appointment.
+ What types of payments are accepted?
Cash, or credit card, HSA, Paypal and Vemno.
+ What Insurances are accepted?
Cigna, Beacon, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, UMR
+ What would we talk about?
Everyone is different, and your sessions would be tailored to your needs and wants. Sessions typcially center around your emotions, self-esteem, conflict resolution, social skills, boundary setting, and processing issues that are related to your mental health.
+ Do I have to come to the office for a session?
Its not 100% necessary, I offer counseling via Zoom (an online video service that is completely confidential).
+ Why don’t you accept all insurances?
If I do not accept your insurance and you'd like to pay out of pocket I can create a "superbill" which is an invoice that shows all of your sessions, you'd submit it to your insurance and it would go towards your deductible.
