I return phone calls personally. Generally I am able to offer an appointment within the week. Our first session will be a working session. I will ask you about the problems that are bringing you to therapy at this time. I will do my best to listen empathically and together we will begin to formulate your goals for the work. I will recommend the best course of treatment for your particular situation.
I accept some insurances but many of my clients prefer to see me out of network because the therapy is then based on their personal goals and the work they want to accomplish. This arrangement gives you more control. When insurances are involved they often dictate how many sessions you have and how long you can come. They also receive information about your treatment. I do not know how they use that information.
If you see me out of the insurance there is more confidentiality and the treatment not managed by the insurance company. Often clients receive reimbursement for their sessions directly. I complete and submit the necessary claims on a monthly basis.
I am committed to helping you reach your goals. Together we can decide how long you need and the best way for you to get there. We can arrange a fee per session that suits both of us. I am committed to providing you with the highest quality care I can with a fee that is manageable for you.
