- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Relationship Therapy: $150 per 1 hour session; $225 for the initial assessment for 75 minutes Individual Therapy: $125 per 1 hour session I do not directly bill insurance companies. You may use out-of-network insurance coverage for reimbursement; I will provide a receipt for you if you have that coverage.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When first approached by a potential client, my greatest desire is make him/her feel comfortable: both with the process and me. I want to answer questions about the first session including what to expect, address concerns about the therapy process and offer assurance that I am trained to help. Couples meet with me as a couple to help me get to know them, their strengths and challenges in the relationship. Then I meet with each partner individually to learn about who each person is and how s/he came to be that way so that I can fully support each partners needs. The next sessions are a deep dive in to relationship repair work. I will allow a safe space to share needs, hurts and joys. Individual clients will begin our work together by stating his/her goals, stating current challenges then uncovering the origin, and starting on a path to personal success. Therapy is not always fun, but it is my belief that your path to self discovery, personal growth and self awareness will be worth it!
