In order for therapy to be effective and beneficial, it is important for you and your family to feel safe and comfortable with me. At our first appointment, I will work to create a safe and confidential space for you to tell me about yourself and what brings you (or your child) to therapy. I will assess your needs and presenting problems in order to develop treatment goals and ensure that I can provide you with effective and appropriate treatment.
Before we begin therapy, I provide a free 5-20 minute phone consultation in order to learn about you or your child’s current difficulties and needs. I will provide you with information about the ways in which I can help you and your family. This is also an opportunity for us to meet one another over the telephone and determine if you feel comfortable with me and if I can provide you with appropriate treatment. If you or I decide during the phone consultation or assessment process that I am not the best therapist for you, I will help you find someone who can better meet your needs.
Therapy sessions are generally 50 minutes in duration and I charge $125 per session. I currently accept cash and checks. I accept Blue Shield, MHN (Health Net), and Magellan insurance. If you have another insurance provider, your insurance plan may reimburse you for my out-of-network services. I am happy to provide you with appropriate paperwork to submit to your insurance carrier.
