how long can I expect to come to therapy?

There is no definitive answer to this question. Though it's safe to say more than a session or two is necessary to make any headway on what brings you in, some individuals find a few sessions are sufficient to work through the presenting problem, while others choose to continue long-term. Often individuals choose to continue to work with me through additional layers as they arise while others take the tools and techniques learned in therapy to address issues on their own and check in on a monthly basis. I am happy to work with your unique situation to find the best fit for your life.

what about confidentiality?

The concerns and problems that you bring to therapy to share with me are completely confidential. I will not share your personal information with anyone. 

Only these specific exceptions to confidentiality include:

  • if you may be an immediate danger to yourself or others

  • if you are endangering someone who cannot protect themself, such as a child or elderly adult

  • If I am ordered by a court to testify or release your records

do you accept insurance?

I do not accept insurance. 

This does not necessarily mean you cannot get some reimbursement from your insurance. I suggest that you find out the reimbursement rate for mental health services for an "out of network" provider. This will give you an idea of how much reimbursement you can expect. If you have coverage, ask: what is my annual deductible, how many sessions per year are covered, and what percentage of the session fee is paid? These figures vary greatly from policy to policy. 

I provide a monthly invoice that you can submit with your claims. Please be aware that since clients are billed directly at the time of the session, you will be responsible for providing payment and then collecting directly any reimbursement offered through your insurance.

Session fees are discussed over the phone during a brief consultation, free of charge.
