FAQ

HOW CAN THERAPY HELP ME?

There are a myriad of benefits that you can reap by being in therapy. I can provide you with guidance, support, a deeper understanding of yourself, and new ways of thinking and behaving around various stressors. 


Treatment can help you to manage relationships and daily challenges. Most importantly, the benefits you obtain from therapy are largely dependent on the collaborative process between you and I. 

DO I REALLY NEED THERAPY? I CAN USUALLY HANDLE MY PROBLEMS.

Choosing to see a therapist is ultimately up to you. Having said that, if you have reached out, the chances are you need help to deal with certain internal and external challenges. Therapy can be for people who have good enough self-awareness and insight to know that they need support. This can involve a level of acceptance and commitment to now pursue change. 

WHAT IS YOUR FEE?

My full fee is $200 per 50 minute session. I may adjust my fee from time to time, depending on changes in my practice. Please contact me through phone or email to discuss fees. I can provide a sliding scale depending on your financial situation and the time slots that I have available. I offer a free initial consultation to assess what you are looking for, your goals, and goodness of fit.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE, AND HOW DOES THAT WORK?

I am an out of network provider. You can contact your insurance company to see what your benefits are for out of network providers. I can provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Insurance companies may reimburse some portion of the cost, while others may not reimburse at all. To see what your mental health coverage is through your insurance carrier, you should contact your insurance company directly. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME TO THERAPY?

I see clients at least once per week. Therapy is most beneficial when it occurs on a weekly basis. In some cases, more than once a week is recommended. We will work together to assess your current difficulties and needs to see what the ideal treatment plan is for you. Please keep in mind that consistency in treatment is important in order for it to be helpful and effective. 

privacy and confidentiality policies

The law protects the psychotherapist-client relationship, and information cannot be disclosed without client authorization.


Exceptions to Confidentiality Include:

If I suspect child abuse, dependent adult and/or elder abuse, I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately. If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s), I must notify the police and inform the intended victim. If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to get their cooperation to secure their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will need to take further measures without their consent that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety. We will go in more depth about confidentiality and the exceptions when we meet.
