Prior to scheduling our first session, I offer a complimentary initial phone screening to ensure that we are a good fit. If you choose to work with me, I offer 50-55 minute sessions at $90-$110 for individuals and $120 for couples. The first 1-2 sessions are considered diagnostic interviews, are intended to gather information and make an initial assessment and diagnosis, are 75 minutes in length, and are $150. In order to maximize the therapeutic process, I prefer to meet once per week, though as the need changes it is possible to meet more or less frequently than that.
The length of time one is in therapy is entirely dependent on the client, the goals they would like to accomplish, and their response to treatment, among other factors. Some are interested in brief therapy (usually for a specific issue) and are seen for as few as 6 sessions, while others find ongoing therapy to be the most beneficial for them. I am happy to work with all types of time frames.
I currently accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO, Aetna, and Cigna insurance plans. If you have another insurance carrier but would still prefer to work with me, I recommend contacting your carrier to inquire about any out of network coverage. I am happy to help with this and if no out of network benefits are available, we can discuss other options. I also have some availability for motivated clients seeking a sliding scale self payment arrangement.
