Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

An initial phone consultation will allow us to discuss your therapeutic needs. I can then give you an honest assessment about whether I can be of assistance to you.

What can I expect from the first visit?

Following the initial phone consultation, we will meet to discuss your goals. The first visit can cause anxiety for some people. Bringing in a list of your concerns or questions can help keep you focused. We will discuss your symptoms, current stressors and what you hope to achieve from therapy. We will then create a treatment plan to address your goals.

What population do you work with?

I treat children beginning at age 6, adolescents, and adults. This can be done through individual or family sessions.

How long will I need to be in treatment?

Every situation is unique. The amount of time required to address individual issues varies. Some stressors can be resolved within several sessions while others may take longer to process. We will continually monitor your progress to ensure goals are being met.

What are your fees?

I have a standard fee of $150 for therapy sessions. Please contact me for further information. Insurances accepted include Aetna.
