- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My typical rate is $120 per 50-minute session. However, I do offer sliding scale rates as needed. I also accept Blue Shield, Cigna, TriCare and Magellan. Many other insurance companies also offer out of network benefits which clients may be eligible for, which would reimburse all or part of their costs. Additionally, I have a colleague who is an associate MFT who can offer discounted rates for those looking for significantly reduced rates. She is an excellent clinician as well and can offer very beneficial insights to clients.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically I will do a phone consultation with a new client to ensure that the client feels comfortable working with me and that it is a good fit with my skill set. Once we decide it is a good fit we will go ahead and schedule a therapy session where the client gets a chance to discuss their goals for therapy and I get a chance to hear a bit about their history in order to develop a plan for the therapy process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been providing therapy to individuals and couples for over 10 years. I have a lot of experience working with issues pertaining to anxiety, depression, trauma, communication and life transitions. I am certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged exposure therapy (which are used for PTSD from combat trauma and sexual trauma). I also have extensive background in cognitive behavioral therapies, client centered approaches, and solution focused. I find Emotion Focused Therapy an excellent choice in working with couples as it really digs to the heart of the conflict and helps distressed couples return to responsive partners.
