Frequently Asked Questions

What is your fee?

My fee a 50-minute session is $120.  Payments can be made by check, cash or credit card.

 

Do you offer a sliding scale?

I offer a limited number of sliding scale spaces based on income and a person’s individual circumstances.

 

Do you take insurance?

I do not take insurance, but I can provide an invoice or superbill for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

 

What days and times do you take appointments?

I see clients all day Wednesday and Friday.  Some people enjoy the option of doing walk-talk therapy and I offer that on other days depending on availability.  If you are interested in outdoor walking sessions, we can discuss this more and decide if it is suitable for you.

 

How often do we meet?

Sessions are generally held once a week, but may be more or less frequent as needed.

 

What can I expect in our first session?

In our first session, we have a chance to explore what brought you to therapy, develop a rapport and see how comfortable we feel working together.  As part of this process, you may have additional questions for me, and I will allow time to answer them.

 

I'm in a graduate program for psychology. Do you offer a reduced rate for students getting personal therapy hours as part of their training?

I appreciate the need for self-knowledge among those who enter our profession. Therapists who have been in therapy themselves are often more empathic and better equipped to distinguish their own issues from those of their clients.  Because I believe in the value of doing one’s own therapy, I offer a certain number of sliding scale spaces for clients getting therapy hours toward licensure.
