Getting Started

 

Please take a moment to review the following information

Consultation

I offer a free 30-minute consultation (either on the phone or in my office), so you can get a sense of whether we have a good match. It is also an opportunity for me to decide whether or not I will be able to help you.

Reduced Fees

If you cannot afford my fee, please let me know because I do have a limited sliding scale or I can connect you with another counselor to serve your needs.

Rates

I charge $120.00 for a 50 minute individual session. Intakes, Family Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis and EFT/Matrix Reimprinting sessions are $180.00 for an 80 minute session.

Insurance

At this time I am not on any insurance panels. I can provide a superbill for you to provide to your insurance company. You are responsible for finding out if your insurance company will allow me to be your Marriage and Family Therapist. I can provide you with any information they may need to create a special membership agreement with me as an outside provider. Many people chose not to use their insurance to ensure confidentiality. I am currently contracted with LEAP EAP services for brief therapy through the workplace. If you have an EAP services and would like to work with me, please contact them and share my information with them.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. When we agree to a scheduled time, I am reserving that time for you and no other client has access to that time. If I know ahead of time, I can schedule someone in that slot, and/or we can reschedule for a different time that same week, otherwise I have lost the opportunity to schedule someone in a timely manner. Serious emergencies are of course an exception. Please be advised that your insurance company will not cover the cost of a missed appointment and therefore you will be charged for the missed session.

Payment

Cash, Credit Card or check accepted for payment at the time of service.

Please fill out these intake forms prior to our first appointment.
