home-slide-sign-white-borderEach individual, couple, or family that I see, presents a unique set of circumstances. We work together to design a plan and establish goals for therapy, adjusting as the need arises. Below is a general guideline of the process as it unfolds for many clients.

Our Process

Initial Phone Contact

  1. Overview of the reason client is seeking therapy.
  2. Is my mode of practice, training, and service best suited for the need?
  3. Cost and Insurance
  4. Schedule first appointment as soon as possible.

***I do not participate in any third-party reimbursement. As an out of network provider, I supply a paper receipt with the proper codes if the client chooses to submit to insurance for reimbursement. Many clients elect not to file for reimbursement from insurance, as treatment then becomes a matter of record.

Cost: $120 per one-hour session. I accept cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard.

Please note– When necessary, I am happy to reschedule appointments with proper notice.   A $75.00 fee will be charged for all missed appointments and those cancelled without 24-hour notice.

First Session

  1. Get acquainted.
  2. Gather initial information.
  3. Outline goals.
  4. Design a unique, therapeutic plan based upon client’s needs.
  5. Schedule next appointment—may be weekly, bi-weekly, or eventually monthly.
