Frequently Asked Questions
How can Psychotherapy help me?
Therapy provides a unique opportunity to form a relationship with a trained professional specializing in emotional health treatment. Together, we support you to gain self-awareness and address the current challenges your face by acquiring coping strategies and healthily managing your emotions. In my practice, individual difference are embraced, and the therapeutic approach used is tailored to meet your unique needs and complexities.
How do I pay for therapy?
Payment for therapy services is due upon the completion of your individual or couples session. It can be made via cash, check or money order. I also accept PayPal electronic payment.
While my practice does not participate as an in-network provider with insurances, it is very possible that you have insurance coverage for therapy through your “out-of-network” benefits coverage.
If you have health insurance with out-of-network coverage, a percentage of the fee you pay for therapy will get reimbursed directly to you by your provider. I will provide you with the form necessary to get reimbursed. I am also happy to contact your insurance provider on your behalf should you like me to inquire about your coverage for therapy.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
Each week, your therapy meeting is reserved exclusively for you. As such, I require 24-hours advanced notice of cancellation from you. When your appointment is cancelled without advanced notice, the session fee is charged.
I am in need of support but afraid I cannot make it to your office. Can you help?
As the demands of fertility treatments, work, children and life are plentiful, it is not always possible to seek counseling in person.
I offer remote psychotherapy sessions to individuals and couples using computer-based Skype technology.
Can I bring my baby to our meetings?
Yes! If you find that bringing your baby to sessions eases your mind and makes scheduling meetings more attainable, you are welcome to bring your baby with you.
Will our sessions be confidential?
Psychotherapy is a confidential process. As a collaborative mental health provider, I am happy to work side by side with your additional clinicians, including psychiatrists, as well as your life partner and family. Upon signing a release form, your consent would allow me to dialogue with these individuals.
Some exceptions to confidentiality exist within our therapeutic process, as I am a mandated reporter of child/elder abuse; additionally, if we assess that you may be in jeopardy of self-harm or harm to others, we would work closely together to ensure that you are supported through this.
At time of our initial meeting, more detailed information about the parameters of confidentiality will be discussed in person.
