What should I expect in the 1st session?

Each session is 50 minutes in length. Your first session will allow us the opportunity to explore in more depth and detail your reasons for seeking therapy, your goals and address any questions you may have. This will also be a time to gather information that will help me better understand you and your current life situation.  

Can I use my insurance?

It is my goal to do what I can to assist you in obtaining insurance reimbursement for my services. I provide you with the billing documentation and receipts that insurance companies typically require to reimburse you for your out-of-pocket expenses for therapy. Specific information about your coverage is described under the mental health out-of-network section in your health plan information.

Are my sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is one of the critical ingredients in achieving a sense of mutual trust in a therapeutic relationship. Strict confidentiality between therapist and client changes only when it is determined that someone’s personal safety is in jeopardy.
