What if I am unsure of how to explain what I need help with?
Through the intake questionnaire as well as our first initial session, we will explore your life experiences and figure out where you might be stuck. It may be a relationship, negative emotions, thought processes or simply looking for more direction in to the next chapter of your life.
For parents this may be that you have noticed changes in your adolescents or teens emotions or behaviors and you are looking for more direction to help them.
Where do I start?
First step is to contact me via telephone or email. We can then set up your FREE 30 minute consultation to help us decide if we are the right fit for one another or for your adolescent/teen.
How long and how often are sessions?
The first intake session will last 90 minutes so that we have enough time to explore the reason for coming to therapy as well as to determine goals that we could work towards achieving in therapy. Initially, I feel that weekly sessions are extremely helpful in building the therapeutic relationship. As we progress in services, we can make any adjustments that need to be made.
What should I expect during our initial consultation?
During our initial 30-minute consultation, we will explore these following questions as well as any other questions you might have.
What is the main reason you are seeking counseling?
What are your goals that you are hoping to accomplish in therapy?
Where do you feel stuck in your life that you feel like processing that with a therapist might give you more direction?
How do I pay for my sessions? Do you accept insurance?
Initial Session: (90 minutes) $125
Individual/Adolescent/Teen Session: (50 minutes) $100
Family Session: (90 minutes) $125
You may pay with cash, check, credit card or FSA/HSA plans. Many insurance providers give out-of-network reimbursements for mental health services. Check with your insurance provider what reimbursement might be available. I can provide you a document that you can then provide to your insurance company as needed.
What are some types of therapy that you will engage with me during our sessions?
I utilize an eclectic approach towards therapy based on the needs of each individual client.
