Getting Started

Special note: To help keep ourselves and each other safe from COVID-19, I am offering online and phone sessions only at this time.  The process of starting to work together is the same, we will just meet online rather than in-person until things shift.  

 

Fees:

20-minute consultation call: Free

First introductory session: $75 per 60 minutes

Ongoing sessions: $150 per 60 minutes

Fees are payable at the start of each session by cash, check or Venmo.  

If my full fee is out of range for you financially, please inquire about whether any low fee slots are available.  


If you'd like to talk with me more about possibly working together, please send an email or give me a call.  I offer a free 20-min phone consultation.  In this call I will ask you about what you are looking for, and answer any questions you have for me.  Check out this link for questions you might ask a therapist to see if they are right for you. 

At the end of the call, if we agree that my experience and style is a good fit for what you are looking for, we can set up an introductory session!  

BEFORE THE FIRST SESSION: 

I will send you an email prior to your session which will include your appointment time, fee, and consent forms that must be signed.  I will also include a brief history document that you can fill out ahead of time, or we can do it together at your session. 

THE FIRST SESSION:

The first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a bit.  You will  have  a chance to feel what it is like to be in my office, and to ask any questions you might have.  We will go over the history document and I will ask you a bit more about what you care about in life, your strengths, what obstacles you are facing, and how I might be of support to you. 

 

After the first session, you can decide whether you would like to set up ongoing sessions and we can discuss fees and schedule.

PAYMENTS:

All payments are due at the time of service. Payments must be received in full prior to scheduling future appointments.  I accept cash, check or Venmo.  I am not currently on any insurance panels, but hope to be in the future.  If you have insurance that reimburses for out-of-network services, I can provide you documentation for reimbursement. 

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Please notify me at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment time if you need to cancel.  Cancellations or no-shows with less than 24 hours notice will generally result in an automatic charge of full session fee.  Future sessions will not be scheduled until payment is received in full.  By scheduling an appointment, regardless of signed documentation, you are verbally agreeing to this policy.
