How long will I need to be in therapy?
This determination is unique & personal to each individual. Clients typically begin to notice or feel a change within 6 to 8 sessions. Therefore, if you schedule weekly appointments, you may experience this change within 6 to 8 weeks. Generally, the more time between sessions, the longer it may take to feel different. Often, clients experiencing severe symptoms or emotional issues prefer to initially schedule weekly appointments & then transition to a decreased frequency once they start to feel some relief.
Ultimately, you can be in therapy for months or years. It's entirely up to you.
How long will it take to feel better?
Therapy takes a minute. I wouldn't have a job if I had a magic wand to rid you of all your problems overnight. Often, my clients experience some relief after the first session because it just feels better to get sh*t off your chest. For some, changes occur incrementally & can go undetected until one day you just realize, "Hey, I just handled that thing really well." (Insert self high-five)

How do I schedule, change, or cancel appointments?
The client portal allows you to schedule your appointments, on your device, at your convenience. You simply select from the available time slots & a request will be sent directly to me. You can cancel your appointment at any time so long as it is at least 48 hours in advance. To change your appointment, cancel the original & submit a request for a new one.
How much does therapy cost?
The price of therapy is generally based on the length of the session, the service(s) being provided, & the number of individuals or providers in attendance. An overview of rates is outlined below.
How do I pay for services?
The client portal lets you enter your preferred payment method. Charges will process electronically after each appointment, avoiding detracting from your session. The client portal will also notify you when your invoices & superbills become available to you which can be downloaded & saved to your own device.
Why don't you accept insurance?
I do not accept payment via the client's insurance provider. However, if you receive any out-of-network benefits from your insurance coverage, I can provide a receipt (aka superbill) with the necessary details you'll need to submit a request for reimbursement from your insurance carrier if applicable.
I empathize with how frustrating it is not only to understand how insurance works but also to find providers who accept payment from insurance companies. To help shed some additional light on the intricacies of health insurance, I have provided some resources below.
