FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long can I expect to come to therapy?
There is no definitive answer to this question. Though it’s safe to say more than a session or two is necessary to make any headway on what brings someone in, some individuals find a few sessions are sufficient, while others choose to continue long-term (over 20 sessions). Often individuals choose to continue to work with me through additional layers as they arise while others choose to address additional items outside of the therapeutic context. There isn’t necessarily a correct answer, but we can collaborate together to help you make the ultimate choice for yourself.
Why can’t you bill my insurance?
A number of years ago I was on a few insurance panels and billed insurance for my clients. Unfortunately, I found that all too often my clients were still finding the full bill landing in their laps after I would properly complete the insurance paperwork. Given the unpredictability of insurance coverage, I’ve chosen to charge out of pocket only to avoid any surprise bills in your inbox.
What if I can’t afford your fee?
Don’t let my fee discourage you from contacting me. I’ve found that more often than not I’m able to come up with an acceptable arrangement with most people. Even when that hasn’t been the case, I’ve been able to refer inquiries to therapists who may be able to accommodate your financial situation.
