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?


I am not on any insurance panels so am considered an out of network provider. I send out superbills monthly that you can submit to your insurance provider to receive reimbursement for our sessions. Each insurance plan has specific procedures for reimbursement. PPOs generally have very good reimbursement once the deductible is met. Here are a few questions you may want to ask your insurance provider:
• 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.
