Finding the Right Fit
I am committed to the growth and healing of everyone, both individually and within cultural, social and global communities. I am a highly-trained professional in several therapeutic orientations, yet I am aware that I may not be the right person to support everyone in their process. I want you have the best opportunity for healing and growth, and I will do my best to make sure we are a good fit before we begin long-term work. I will check in with you over the phone and during our first meeting(s) about your needs and what you are wanting to work on.
If we decide we are not a good fit to work together at this time, I can help you find other professionals with whom your needs may be better suited.
Fees, Meetings, and Payment
I meet with clients at least once per week. I accept cash, check and credit/debit cards. I also offer limited sliding-scale appointments depending on availability. If you feel you would qualify for a sliding-scale arrangement, please discuss your situation with me before we meet.
Payment can be made during each session or at the end of the month once we begin long-term work.
I do not accept insurance; however, I am happy to provide you with a monthly statement which may be used for reimbursement or towards insurance deductibles, HSA and FSA accounts. I can also help you navigate your insurance policy to understand your benefits.
Psychotherapy is a different service than medical appointments where there can be unknown wait times. Once we decide to work together, I will hold our time together every week.
I request one week’s notice for cancellations to avoid paying for a missed session. I understand that life happens, and if you need to make a late cancellation (without seven days’ notice), it is occasionally possible to schedule another session within the same week to avoid paying for a missed session.
Successful therapy requires consistent effort, including working together to understand how our therapeutic relationship impacts you and is like or unlike other experiences you’ve had. I encourage you at any time to discuss your feelings with me about our work together.
Please let me know if you have questions or concerns about my policies. It is often easy to alleviate concerns by talking together.
