Free Initial Consultation
I provide a free initial consultation. This time will give us the opportunity to talk about your concerns and expectations for counseling and decide if we will have a suitable working relationship that can help you succeed in achieving your therapeutic goals. Please go to the Contact Me page so we may schedule this appointment.
Counseling Appointments & Fees
Individual counseling sessions are 1 hour. The cost for longer or shorter appointments are prorated from the basic session fee. I am happy to openly discuss my fees over the phone or at our first face-to-face meeting.
I accept payment at the time of service in the form of cash or check. Due to the threats of client confidentiality and treatment limitations inherent in working with insurance companies, I encourage people to self-pay for sessions. I find that clients prefer this method of payment as well. I am happy to provide an invoice for you to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement if this procedure makes sense for you. I welcome questions about this procedure as this issue can be confusing and each case is different.
I require 24 hour notice if you need to cancel a scheduled appointment. If less notice is given, you will be responsible for the full session amount.
