My Clients’ Frequently Asked Questions
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is the process of moving closer to one’s authentic self. My approach to psychotherapy is gentle. The psyche naturally directs a person toward healing and a therapeutic relationship supports this healing and transformation.
In our therapeutic sessions, we will begin by uncovering your story. It’s important to me that I honor your individuality and cultural diversity.
Increased insight is a natural product of our work together. Insight can help one move toward better ways of being in the world and a greater sense of connection.
Who Can Benefit From Treatment?
I provide treatment for people that have diverse life experiences and multifaceted backgrounds. It is my personal goal to provide counseling that acknowledges your race, ethnicity, spirituality, religion, socio-economic status, culture, sexuality, gender, age, and other forms of diversity.
I work with people looking to create meaning and live an authentic life. I have experience working with clients that face difficulties with anxiety, restlessness, depression, relationship issues, life stressors, disordered eating, feelings of low self-worth, body image concerns, substance abuse, sexual identity, and trauma.
Do you take insurance?
I am considered an out of network provider. If you have a PPO insurance plan I can provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement. The rate of reimbursement is dependent upon your individual plan.
What is the cost per session?
I reserve a certain number of sliding scale appointments to meet client’s economic needs.
My fee for individual psychotherapy is $200.00 for 50-minute sessions.
My fee for couple’s psychotherapy is $225.00 for 50 minute sessions.
My fee for 75min couples sessions or EMDR is $275.00.
How frequently do you meet with clients?
I meet weekly and at times biweekly to support client’s goals for treatment.
Do you provide telehealth?
Yes, I meet with clients over a HIPPA compliant video platform. I find video sessions to be an effective way to provide therapeutic support. Clients have reported that meeting online has decreased stress related to commuting and improved their abilities to make weekly appointments.
How do I talk to my partner about starting couples therapy?
Asking your partner to participate with you in couples therapy can sometimes feel like a difficult request. I suggest that clients approach this question with love and respect for themselves and their relationship. Clients can ask their partners if they would be willing to meet with a therapist to aid in deepening their emotional connection and to improve communication. Couple’s therapy can help couples learn how to be consistent and reliable partners, navigate difficult decisions, communicate effectively during conflict, learn how to better understand oneself in relationship, and better cope and regulate life stressors.
