First Contact: You may reach out to me by phone or email and I will usually respond within 24 hours. The first visit is a consultation where I seek to understand your needs and goals. The consultation allows us to decide whether we are a good fit and whether to continue in therapy. Once we decide to proceed we will develop goals and a plan.
Rates: Initial Consultation $175 (75 minutes), Individual therapy $140 (55 minutes)
You may pay using cash or check.
Sliding scale: If you are a client who can't afford my full fee, I offer a sliding scale in exchange for volunteer work in the community. You pick a cause that is important to you, volunteer your time, and provide me with documentation of your service. I will reduce my fee $15/hour for each hour you volunteer. The lowest rate I will accept per session is $125/hour. Please ask for details if you are interested in this option as I have limited slots for sliding scale available.
Insurance: I do not accept insurance as it tends to limit the scope and duration of our work together. Insurance companies require that I give you a mental health diagnosis to justify treatment. Also, insurance companies often limit the number of sessions you are eligible for based upon this diagnosis. At your request, I will create a bill for you to submit to your insurance company and you may be able to receive reimbursement at the out-of-network rate.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. ~ T.S. Eliot.
