Individual and family psychotherapy sessions are typically 45 to 60 minutes in length, weekly or alternative scheduled based on need. Parenting work is a component to child therapy and parents are expected to participate in parenting sessions; frequency varies depending on need however I often meet with parents every 6-8 weeks. For younger clients, parents may participate in weekly sessions, based on need.
Get started today by emailing or calling for more information. Often times, I speak with a client by phone before scheduling a session to determine if we are a good fit. This is a free phone consultation and lasts 10-20 minutes. After determining it is a good fit, we schedule an intake session (45-60 minutes) with the parents of the child or the adult client. For a child therapy client, I would conduct a 3 session assessment with the child and meet back with the parents to determine the best plan to move forward. For an adult therapy client, we would establish goals and areas of work within our first 3 sessions. Throughout my work with clients, we are continue to assess for progress and ensure the client's needs are being met. If not, we would discuss a plan to end treatment and I would provide the client with additional resources for continued support after ending.
Group psychotherapy is 50 to 60 minute group sessions weekly. Commitment to year long is preferred, although half year semester options are also available.
I am an “out of network” provider and my services are covered by most insurance plans. I recommend calling your insurance company and asking about your out of network benefits and coverage. See the rates section below for more specific information to ask your insurance provider.
You will receive a billing statement monthly with all the information needed to submit for insurance reimbursement. Insurance companies ask for CPT or procedure codes, dates of service, cost of service, diagnostic code, and, and at times, a therapist signature or verification that the client has paid. Clients are expected to pay for services at the time of receipt for services. Often times insurance companies will provide reimbursement 30-90 days after claim submission.
Consultation and observation regarding school setting and support services for academic planning are available.

When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
What is “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”)?
When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or have to pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.
“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that haven’t signed a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your annual out-of-pocket limit.
“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care - like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in-network facility but are unexpectedly treatedby an out-of-network provider.
You are protected from balance billing for:
Emergency services: If you have an emergency medical condition and get emergency services from an out-of-network provider or facility, the most the provider or facility may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount (such as copayments and coinsurance). You can’t be balance billed for these emergency services. This includes services you may get after you’re in stable condition, unless you give written consent and give up your protections not to be balanced billed for these post-stabilization services.
Certain services at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center: When you get services from an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, certain providers there may be out-of-network. In these cases, the most those providers may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount. This applies to emergency medicine, anesthesia, pathology, radiology, laboratory, neonatology, assistant surgeon, hospitalist, or intensivist services. These providers can’t balance bill you and may not ask you to give up your protections not tobe balance billed.
If you get other services at these in-network facilities, out-of-network providers can’t balance bill you unless yougive written consent and give up your protections.
You’re never required to give up your protection from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.
When balance billing isn’t allowed, you also have the following protections:

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
If you need another copy of your therapist's fee structure (similar to the grid above under 'Rates') and/or would like to request a GFE, please contact your therapist directly.
Here is an example of a GFE for weekly and bi-weekly (every other week therapy) psychotherapy sessions:
*These basic estimates do not include nor account for any additional services that may be required for your care.
It is difficult to determine the true length of treatment for mental health care, and each client has a right to decide how long they would like to participate in mental health care. Your therapist will collaborate with you throughout your treatment to determine how many sessions and/or services you may need to receive the greatest benefit based on your diagnosis(es)/presenting clinical concerns. Therefore, any amount furnished in a GFE is only an estimate; it isn’t an offer or contract for services. This estimate shows the full estimated costs of the items or services listed. It doesn’t include any information about what your health plan may cover. This means that the final cost of services may be different than this estimate.
Contact your health plan to find out how much, if any, your plan will pay and how much you may have to pay.
