How long are my sessions and how often will we meet?
Individual therapy is typically 50 minutes in length and held weekly until we decide to meet less frequently or that our work has been completed. This tends to occur naturally and collaboratively as you continue to feel better.
I also offer 75- and 90-minute sessions for those who benefit from more time and/or cannot schedule weekly meetings. EMDR and couples sessions are always at least 75 minutes.
What are your fees and can I use my insurance?
Please contact me regarding my current fees, as they vary per service and change from time to time. I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. I also accept FSA/HSA cards, which you can learn more about that here. I wish everyone both had and knew about this option!
I serve as an out-of-network provider for *most major insurance companies (e.g., Blue Shield/Blue Cross, Aetna, United Healthcare, etc.) and accept Victims of Crime Compensation. *Cigna members, please note I am no longer accepting Cigna insurance.
When accessing services out of your insurance network, you may be eligible for at least partial reimbursement. Many of my clients qualify for 30 - 70% reimbursement. Please contact your insurance provider for specific information. Some further questions you might ask are:
Does my health insurance policy have a mental health or behavioral health benefit?
Does my policy cover a non-participating (out of network) MFT?
What is my annual deductible? Has it been met for this calendar year?
During the calendar year, how many sessions does my policy cover?
What paperwork or form do I need to submit for sessions to be covered?
