Frequently asked questions
Answers to the most common questions people have when considering therapy with me.
As of January 2022, rates for new clients are as follows:
- 90834 (Individual Psychotherapy 45 minutes) – $210.
- 90 minute parent consultation session (including a written report of recommendations and 2 follow up phone calls) – $400.
- Presentation fee – TBD with organization
Clients generally meet weekly or every other week with me. Meeting less frequently is not proven effective and will lead to much slower progress toward your goals for therapy.
It isn’t possible to know at the outset exactly how long it will take for therapy to help you reach your individual goals. However, clients generally begin to see changes by the 4th session. I will work with you to set and monitor goals throughout your time in therapy to ensure that you are getting what you need from the experience.
During an initial session with me, you will share your major concerns, background information about you and your family, and your goals for therapy. I will ask questions about your relationships and your physical health. A diagnosis will be established and goals will be created. Should you be in agreement with the goals and plan, a second appointment will be made.
In subsequent sessions, you and I will continue to work toward the goals created.
All appointments must be canceled with at least 24 hours notice. If an appointment is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, the full session fee will be due.
Payment is accepted in the form of credit/debit cards. Payment is due at each appointment.
I am not in-network with any insurance companies. However, my services qualify for FSA and HSA accounts and they may be reimbursable by your insurance plan if you have out-of-network benefits.
If you wish to find out if and how much you will receive in reimbursement from your insurance plan, you should call and ask the benefits department the following questions:
What is my deductible?
After the deductible is met, what is the allowed amount for code 90834?
What is the reimbursement rate for code 90834?
