What’s your availability?
I see client appointments on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Do you take insurance?
Most insurances do not cover performance therapy. Although, I am an “out of network” provider, which means I do not accept your insurance directly. I can provide you with a “superbill” which you can submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursements. A superbill is a summary of your payments that insurance companies use to process reimbursements. You should contact your insurance company and ask them what their reimbursement terms are for performance sessions. Please be aware that if you choose to submit a superbill to your insurance company, your private medical information will be released. This may impact your future insurance coverage, rates, and reimbursement. For this reason, many patients opt to pay strictly out-of-pocket, and bypass their insurance carriers altogether. For more info on insurance and superbills, please feel free to contact me.
How much do you charge? How do I pay?
My fees are currently $175.00 for an initial 50-minute session. After that depending on what package you purchase depends on the number and times of sessions. My Brainspotting sessions are 180.00 for a 60-minute session. Payment can be made using your credit, debit, or HSA card through our online payment system called IvyPay. For instructions on how to use IvyPay, just click here.
What will be discussed when I first call?
During our phone consultation, we will discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, and what your expectations are. It’s your opportunity to ask me any number of questions about therapy and how it may apply to you or your child’s needs. We’ll also discuss my fee and any insurance concerns you may have. Additionally, it’s a chance for us to meet each other and decide if therapy is appropriate at this time.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically, my high-level performers (high school and college) will need the silver package. Younger performers (middle school and younger) will generally start with the Bronze package and professional performers with the Gold package. (Refer to fees and forms page).
How long does each session last?
Initial session lasts 50 minutes, after that it depends on package that is chosen.
What if I need to cancel a session?
It’s no problem to cancel or postpone a session as long as you do so 24-hours beforehand. You will be billed a full session fee for any cancellations less than 24-hours before your session start time.
Are sessions private and confidential?
All sessions and information are kept private and confidential. Please be aware, however, that there are situations where I am legally bound to disclose confidential and private information:
– There is reasonable suspicion of abuse to a child, elderly person or other vulnerable adult.
– The client presents as a serious danger to himself/herself or others.
– The case file is court ordered by a judge.
How will I benefit from therapy? Is it right for me?
It goes without saying that everyone is different. Much of what you get out of the sessions comes from what you put into it. Your treatment is not limited to the time that we’ll meet each week. I will spend additional time researching treatment options and considering your situation. At the same time, you will need to make efforts to exercise your plan, and work outside of session with what we discuss during our time together. The most productive and beneficial results come from those individuals who enter into counseling with an open mind and a genuine desire to benefit themselves.
What can I expect in my first session?
During our first session, we’ll get to know each other, go over paperwork and any questions you may have. We’ll also discuss your goals, where you are stuck and your expectations regarding counseling. Most importantly, we’ll establish a comfortable, non-judgmental atmosphere where you can feel at ease.
I’m ready to start. What do I do next?
You can call or email me to ask any questions that you many have about the process. (There is no charge for a phone consultation). From there, we’ll schedule a first session, and I’ll direct you to fill out forms for our first meeting.
