Initial appointments are generally 75 minutes in length and regular follow-up counseling sessions are 55 minutes. Initial appointments are $120 and regular counseling sessions are $100, payable at the time of service.
I am very open to talking with you briefly on the phone to see if we would be a good fit. In our conversation, we will determine together if we think you may benefit from meeting with me. If needed, I can assist you with an appropriate referral.
In our sessions together, I will encourage you to ask questions throughout, take risks, be curious, and when applicable, engage in some EMDR & TRM to see what your brain/mindbody will do with it! I may also ask you to "press pause" during certain discussions to slow down and watch what's happening in a different way. The overwhelming majority of clients I work with notice changes in their thoughts, emotions, reactions, physical sensations and behaviors within a few sessions.
I offer hope, a break from the monotony of the ways you generally interact with others, as well as a dose of authentic connection - as I realize you might be pretty darn tired of your defense system being in overdrive (which is completely exhausting and leaves you feeling unseen). I am direct, swift, and gentle in helping you name the thoughts and behaviors that have hijacked your life - as well as thoughts/feelings you would rather be having instead!
I accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield and United Healthcare. With your permission, I will file on your behalf. Please contact them prior to our first session so you know what your benefits are and what your copay will be. If you do not know your benefits by the time we first meet, I will charge the full fee and reimburse you when your insurance company finalizes the claim.
Alternatively, I can supply you with a "superbill" that you can submit to your insurance company so that you may be reimbursed. If you opt for a superbill, please contact your insurance company to see if you have out-of-network benefits so you will know what to expect.
