Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect in the beginning?

The first one to four appointments serve as an opportunity for you to get a sense of what it would be like for us to work together and for me to learn more about you, your reasons for coming in, and your goals for therapy. At the end of the initial consultation, I will provide treatment recommendations and together, we will decide whether to begin psychotherapy.

 

 

How long does therapy last?

Determining the length of treatment is a collaborative process based on your needs, personal circumstances, and reasons for coming in. I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy. During the first few appointments, we will develop a treatment plan together that we can review and modify as needed.

Is therapy confidential?

It is my legal and ethical duty to maintain the confidentiality of your treatment, with limited exceptions that are either mandated or permitted by law. Confidentiality will be discussed in detail as early as possible, typically at the beginning of the first appointment. Please see the practice Notice of Privacy Practices form below for additional information: 

 

 

Do you accept insurance? 

I am a non-network provider, meaning that I do not have a contract with any health insurance carriers. Many insurance policies offer out-of-network benefits, which will cover a substantial portion of psychotherapy fees. Psychotherapy is commonly covered by Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans. To seek reimbursement, I recommend verifying your current benefits prior to initiating services. I can provide itemized bills that list the information required for the claims, which includes a diagnosis code. I welcome and encourage conversations about billing to support you in making an informed and financially sustainable decision for your care.
