Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS YOUR FEE?
My fee for Individual Therapy is $180 for a 50-minute session and $210 for a 60-minute session.

DO YOU OFFER A SLIDING SCALE?
I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone; for this reason I reserve a limited number of reduced-fee weekly appointments (based on financial hardship). Please contact me to discuss further. {I currently do not have any openings for sliding scale appointments. You may request to be added to my wait-list for a sliding scale slot}

DO YOU TAKE COMMERCIAL INSURANCE?
Like many other therapists in private practice, I do not bill commercial insurance directly. If you have an insurance plan that includes coverage for out-of-network providers, I am happy to supply you with monthly invoices (superbills) that you can submit for reimbursement (typically this covers a good percentage of my fee). Check with your plan directly to verify your coverage. You may be asked for the CPT code in order to verify reimbursement rate; the CPT code for 50-minute individual sessions is 90834 and the CPT code for 60-minute individual sessions is 90837.

HOW OFTEN WILL I SEE YOU?
I typically see individual clients once per week. Seeing each other weekly allows for the work to move along at a good pace.

DO YOU SEE COUPLES OR CHILDREN?
At this time I do NOT see couples or children. I help adult individuals clean up their side of the street, so to speak, within their relationships. I would be happy to share some referrals with you for local couples or child therapists that I know and trust, if that would be helpful.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF YOU'RE THE RIGHT THERAPIST FOR ME?
This is a very important question. You are dedicating time and resources and want to be sure you are picking the right person. You should consider logistical factors (office location, availability) as well as personal factors (my training and expertise, personality, and 'the feel' you get). An initial phone conversation should be able answer some of these questions - I suggest that you think about the questions that will inform your decision. Sometimes you have to be in a room with someone before you truly have a feel for the person. The first couple of face-to-face sessions can continue to inform your decision and we can talk about any ongoing reservations or concerns you might have.
