HOW LONG AND HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK IS A TYPICAL SESSION?
Sessions are usually 50-60 minutes. Most clients are seen once or twice a week in the beginning, then, as time goes on, less frequently. The number of sessions depends on what your current needs are. Saturday appointments available.
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN COUNSELING?
The length of time a client is in counseling depends the nature of the problem and the goals of the counseling. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in a set course of counseling. For others, counseling is an on-going learning process and they choose to receive counseling for a longer period.
HOW MUCH ARE YOUR FEES AND DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Your fee depends on the kinds of services you request. You can learn more about the insurance I accept, fees, methods of payment, and general payment policy during an initial phone consultation.
DO I NEED TO TAKE MEDICATIONS?
As a therapist, I am not legally allowed to prescribe medications; however, based on a joint assessment of problems you are facing, it may be advisable to consult with a psychiatrist to determine whether medication is warranted. Typically, clients see someone under their health insurance coverage or I can refer you to a psychiatrist.
