New Client Questions



What are your hours?

Sessions are available at various times Monday through Friday between 9 am – 5:30 pm.  Standard counseling sessions are 50 minutes long.  Depending on your preference or need 80 minutes sessions are also available. 


What is your fee?

My standard fee is $120 for a 50-minute session, $180 for an 80 minute session.  I also provide an impartial sliding scale that is based on family size and income.  For those wishing to utilize health insurance, I can furnish you with a receipt for self-filing.  Consider checking with your insurance company for clarification of your out-of-network counseling benefits.


How often do I come?

Counseling is for you, so the pace is largely determined by you.  Some choose to come weekly, while others come every other week.  You can choose what is right for you, and I can help you decide what is best.  Keep in mind that counseling is most effective, regardless of how often you come, when you are committed and focused.


How do I get started?

Getting started is easy!  Contact my office by phone or email with any questions you have and to arrange an initial appointment.  Plan to arrive 15 minutes early on your initial visit to fill out paperwork and review policies.  A clipboard with information to review and complete will be available in the waiting room once you arrive.   Your first visit has the same fee and format as subsequent sessions.


Can I download the paperwork?
If it is more convenient, you may download and complete the new client paperwork before coming to your session.  Please remember to bring the forms along with you to your first visit!  Click here to download New Client Paperwork.


How can I pay?
At this time, only cash or check is accepted.  Payment is due at the time of service.  A receipt for self-filing can be furnished for those wishing to utilize insurance.


What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

Keeping your appointments is an important responsibility, and it is necessary to give adequate notice if you cannot make your appointment.   Please notify my office at least 24 hours in advance when cancelling or rescheduling appointments to avoid a late cancellation fee.  More information about late cancellations is in your new client paperwork.
