Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect in a therapy session?
A session usually lasts 50 minutes, although longer sessions might be considered useful. Weekly sessions are recommended. Between sessions, clients are encouraged to think about, process and implement what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to do something specific outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. Active participation, both during and between the therapy sessions is essential.
What benefits might I experience from working with a therapist?
A number of benefits are possible from participating in therapy. Often, it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Therapy can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.
What is your session fee?
Each 50 minute therapy session is $130.
Do you accept insurance?
No, but I can provide you with a Superbill receipt, which you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I do not bill your insurance. The first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier and ask the following questions:
- Do I have mental health benefits? If yes, how many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- What is my deductible?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
