FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently asked questions
What should I expect in my first appointment?
Finding a therapist who is a good match is essential to the therapeutic process and efficacy. We will spend the first session getting a sense of each other so you can get a sense if we are a good match. You are welcome to ask any questions you may have and/or share any concerns about starting therapy. In order to spend our time most efficiently, you will not spend any time in session completing paperwork. Prior to our first appointment, I will send you a link to my confidential patient portal where you will find a few brief documents about my practice, confidentiality in therapy and forms where you can provide some information about yourself.
Do you accept insurance?
• What is my behavioral/mental health out of network deductible?
• How much of my deductible have I met?
• How much is the reimbursement for session with a psychologist who is out of network?
What are your fees?
My fee is $240 for a 50-minute session. I often have sessions available for a sliding scale rate so please contact me to discuss fees. I’m also happy to provide referrals if I do not have availability to accommodate you.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a cancellation notice 48 hours prior to our scheduled appointment to avoid charge for the session. Emergencies of all types happen so there are exceptions to this policy.
