I offer a free initial 20-minute phone consultation. During a consultation, I am happy to answer any questions you may have for me. We can discuss things like what to expect from therapy and what you are looking for in a therapist. We can also briefly discuss your concerns and your reason for seeking counseling to ensure that we will be a good fit for working together.
This session is different from a consult session. This initial session allows you to relay important history and background information, discuss in detail what brings you to counseling, and what you hope to gain from counseling.
Clients can cancel or reschedule up to 24-hours in advance without penalty; however, clients will be billed for the full amount of the session with late or no notice.
Please pay with either cash or check at the end of each appointment. I also accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
I do not participate in any insurance programs. However, if your health insurance has “out-of-network benefits” you may be eligible for reimbursement for part of the therapy fees. Therapy is covered by most health insurance plans.
To determine if you have mental health coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you can do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers. Some helpful questions you can ask them:
What are my mental health benefits?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
Does my plan cover family therapy?
How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
