What do you charge?
My rate is $120 for a 50-minute session, payable at the end of a session. If this cost is prohibitive for you, I also offer a limited number of reduced-fee appointments per week. Please let me know if you are interested in discussing those terms.
Do you accept insurance?
I am not in-network for insurance at this time; however, I am happy to provide you a receipt upon payment, and many insurance policies will reimburse you for some percentage of your out-of-network counseling sessions. You should contact your insurance provider directly for more information about that.
How long is a session?
My standard psychotherapy or Somatic Experiencing session is 50 minutes long. If you are scheduling a Lifespan Integration session, we should reserve an 80-minute slot, although we may not end up using all that time. For couples or family counseling I recommend an 80-minute session as well.
How often should I come?
The pace is up to you. Most clients come to therapy on a weekly or every-other-week basis. I recommend weekly to start as we get to know each other and work with your most pressing discomfort; when it feels right, we can adjust your frequency to reflect your needs and schedule.
How long is this going to take?
This is different for everyone. Some clients come in with a pressing issue or a specific trauma they would like to resolve, and feel better in 4-8 sessions. Some find they are dealing with more pervasive, deeper, or developmentally installed issues or patterns that may take longer to resolve, as long as a year or more of regular visits. Part of our conversation in our first meeting will be around defining your goals for therapy and our hopeful timeline, and we will revisit these as counseling progresses.
