What can I expect in the first session?
During our first session, the intention is for us to get to know each other, discuss the issues you are struggling with and how they impact your and your life. We can if it feels like we can work together, so ask yourself “Do I feel comfortable and safe sharing this information?”.
Prior to the session, you can write down some thoughts, topics or questions you’d like to discuss. Together, during this first session, we will create the foundation for the work we will be doing in subsequent sessions. As the process unfolds, we can continue to check in and make any changes necessary to support you.
How often should I schedule appointments?
Ultimately, the choice is yours and it’s something that can be discussed at any point during and when you start therapy. The frequency of therapy can change based on your needs and what’s happening in your life. It can be increased or decreased as you feel more at peace and grounded. Based on our discussion during the first session, we can determine the frequency of scheduling appointments, which we can assess and change as needed at any time.
How long is an appointment?
One session is normally 50 to 55 minutes but longer appointments are available as well. Often, couples sessions, and EMDR sessions will be scheduled for 85 minutes.
How do I cancel an appointment?
You can text, email or call if you need to cancel an appointment. Please provide 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or you will be charged the session fee. Unless it’s an emergency.
What are the appointment fees and what types of payment do you accept?
You can pay by Visa, American Express, or Mastercard.
A 55 minute session is $180.00, and couples sessions are $200.00 for 55 minutes. Longer sessions will be billed accordingly. I’m sorry, but we do not accept insurance. We will provide you with an invoice if your insurance company will reimburse you for out of network expenses.
