WHAT TO EXPECT
My goal is not for you to be in therapy for years on end but to get you living a more meaningful life and to make my job obsolete as quickly as possible. We won’t just talk, we will roll our sleeves up and work towards change.
I intentionally maintain a smaller caseload, so I can focus more energy on you during our session and more time reflecting on your situation in between our sessions.
I recommend in the beginning we meet weekly to keep up the momentum we see in session, but the ball is always in your court on this. After a few months, we can then meet every two weeks. Then we can just have a “tune up” session from time to time whenever the need arises or start back weekly or bi-weekly if life starts to punch back. Don’t stress about this from the outset though as this is very flexible and person dependent.
Individual Sessions are $150 and last 50 minutes.
I accept Venmo, cash, check, and all major credit cards.
Payment is collected at the end of session.
I do not currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation that you can submit to your insurance company for “out of network” coverage. If this is a little confusing, just reach out and we can talk more.
How Do I Get Started?
First, let’s schedule a no-cost 15 minute phone consultation. This will help us decide if I am the right fit for you.
If we decide it’s a go, we will schedule your first appointment over the phone. I will then send you an email with a link to sign up for your personalized client portal. Using this portal, you can access the necessary paperwork prior to our first session and then use the portal to easily schedule future sessions.
During your first appointment
It’s completely normal to feel nervous in your first therapy session. I get nervous the first time I meet people too. We will spend this session getting to know your struggle, determining where you want to go and starting to work right away towards getting there.
I will be using teletherapy for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19. I use a secure, confidential video portal. It’s kind of like Skype or Zoom, but more secure and without the glitches.
It will most likely always be part of my practice as clients find it super convenient. Teletherapy allows people from all walks of life – the working professional, the college kid, the stay at home parent – to fit therapy more seamlessly into their day.
No driving, no sitting in a waiting room and you can wear flip flops or go barefoot if you want (I may or may not be as well). Research, see below, also shows that teletherapy is equally as effective as traditional, in-person therapy.
Meta-Analysis of over 90 studies involving 90,000 clients that finds teletherapy is equally effective as face to face in treating psychological disorders.
Walk and Talk Therapy
At some point, I may jump back into having an actual physical office. In the meantime
