What to Expect

How About Scheduling Appointments?

I offer a free 30-minute consultation for new clients, to help them make a decision about which counselor to choose. Typical counseling sessions for individuals are usually 50 minutes long. Sessions for couples are usually scheduled for 80 minutes.


How Long Will I Need to Be in Therapy?

The length of therapy depends on a client’s unique circumstances. My clients and I together determine what will be most effective throughout our work together.


How Much Does Counseling Cost?

My standard fee is $120 per session. I accept cash, checks and cards. Payment is due at each session. If my fee causes financial hardship, please discuss it with me because I have some discounted time slots.


Using Your Insurance

I do not bill insurance directly. That means that you are financially responsible for payment. It also means that we, not your insurance company, make the decisions about the course of your treatment. If you would like to use your insurance, contact your insurance carrier to see if they cover out-of-network mental health counseling. If so, let me know and I will provide you with a monthly statement you can send them. Please know that I cannot guarantee that your insurance company will reimburse you.


If you have additional questions, please contact me and I will be happy to answer them.
