A thorough assessment is important for us to develop a good understanding of your current stressors and experiences. The assessment process takes place during the first few sessions. Each session is typically scheduled for weekly 50 minute intervals.
On-Going Therapeutic Work (Individuals/Couples/Families):
We will work collaboratively to determine the most appropriate session frequency and length of sessions. Based on the issues that bring you to therapy we will determine what goals you would like to accomplish. All sessions are typically scheduled for weekly 45-60 minute intervals. However, couple’s and family session tend to need more time and attention and will initially need approximately 60-90 minutes or more.
Each individual is entitled to a confidential relationship with your therapist and we will not disclose any of your information without your permission. There are some circumstances in which all therapists are required to break confidentiality to ensure your safety or the safety of others. We will review these exceptions with all clients at the start of treatment. Please feel free to contact us in advance if you have specific questions regarding this matter.
Please advise us at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment time. If you fail to do so, you will be charged the full total amount of your session.
Our regular fee for individual session is $150 per session. Family and couples sessions are $200. We also offer a sliding scale, in which a lower fee can be negotiated on an individual basis based on availability. Payment is expected at the beginning of each session and can be made by cash, credit card, or check. A valid and up-to-date credit card authorization form on file is required.
We are considered an out-of-network provider for most PPO insurance plans, but we can help you bill your insurance to help with cost of each session. Please contact us for more information if needed.
