Frequently  Asked  Questions

 

What can I expect during my first session?

 

​      During our first few sessions, I'll ask about your current concerns and together, we will explore contributing factors.  We will determine goals for therapy.  We will also discuss how and what you'd like your future to look and feel like.  This will provide a roadmap for where we are going.   I also always ask about strengths, supports & explore what is working in your life.  Therapy with em is collaborative & active.  Together, we will work together as a team to implement coping strategies, improve your overall well being and meet your goals.

 
Session Fees?

 

        An individual session is $170.  Payment is expected at time of service.  

 

Do you take insurance?

 

      I am not contracted with any insurance company directly.  All my clients pay my session fee at the end of our sessions.  Some clients with a PPO request a superbill (which is a detailed receipt) and then give that to their insurance provider for partial reimbursement.     

In order to find out if your plan covers out of network providers, please call them to verify your coverage.  Here are some questions to consider:

  • Do I have mental/behavioral health insurance benefits?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session for an out-of-network provider?

 

Do you offer sliding scale appointments?

 

    Yes, if you would like to work together & need accomodations on the session fee, please reach out to discuss.
