If you have decided you would like to schedule a consultation appointment with me, feel free to call at any time of the day or night to make an appointment. Please leave a voice message if I am unable to answer the phone and I will try to return your call within that business day. During my busiest periods, it may be the following business day before I can return calls. You may also send messages through the Contact page on this site.
Brief intake forms and questionnaires for your initial session may be found here if you wish to get a head start on things.
If you would like to use your insurance for therapy, bring in your insurance card to your initial appointment and I will contact your insurance company to determine your benefits. I can take most insurance, even if I am out of your preferred network. I will bill your insurance once a month. Fees, copayment, and coinsurance are due each session unless other arrangements are made. My standard billing rate is $150 per hour. I make adjustments to this fee for private pay clients on a case to case basis. Please feel open and free to to discuss any of the above with me.
Initially, we will spend some time getting to know one another, as well as discussing your perceptions of your difficulties and any relevant interactional patterns. Through this process, you will most likely gain some degree of insight into your situation and what it means to yourself and others. Over the first 2-3 sessions we will also collaborate on possible approaches to therapy.
Honest and open communication is of the utmost importance for successful therapy. I will make every attempt to provide a safe and trusting environment for all involved to be able to openly speak their mind. Please feel free to correct me if I reflect something that doesn’t sound accurate. Just like any other professional, I try out ideas to see how they fit. Additionally, you are in control of the direction of therapy. You’re invited to tell me if you would like to try different therapeutic approaches. There is more than one way to approach any given situation.
Therapy will likely require some degree of effort from each person involved, and temporary feelings of discomfort inherent in change are not uncommon. Additionally, at times there are circumstances when it is difficult to gauge improvement in therapy. Therefore, we will regularly evaluate how the therapeutic process is meeting your needs and objectives by exploring progress as compared to when you began therapy. It is important to for you to know that while positive changes usually do occur, they cannot be guaranteed in therapy. Each session will follow a similar format.
Treatment will conclude when the identified objectives have been sufficiently achieved. This will be determined through mutual agreement among the participants, including myself.
