People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. The length of time spent in therapy also varies. For many people, they come in for a specific issue that is worked through in a relatively short time. For others, therapy is ongoing to gain additional insight, work on additional issues, or maintain and reinforce earlier gains in therapy.
For most people, weekly sessions are appropriate. If someone is in crisis or severe distress, sessions are often increased to 2-3 times per week. For those who are feeling well but like to have ongoing support sessions may be decreased to 1 or 2 times per month.
What outcome will I expect?
Outcomes depend on how ready and able a client engages in the process of therapy and whether they put into action what they learn.
Here are a few examples of what my clients have experienced:
Recovery from depression, improved mood and optimism for the future.
My fee is $150 for a 50-minute session.
Payment is requested at the end of each session.
I do not participate in any insurance panels. If your insurance will cover out of network services, you can get reimbursed for the amount that is covered for you mental health benefits.
I will provide you with an invoice after each session. I recommend clients submit for reimbursement monthly to keep the process streamlined and reduce multiple submissions.
Clients will be responsible for missed appointments if the appointment is not cancelled within 24 hours.
