There are two parts to getting started with me.
#1 Schedule the 90 minute intake session, which can be done here. This is only for California residents and those living abroad. If you live in a different state, at this time I cannot treat you for therapy but there is a chance for us to work together in my coaching business. Go here if your interested in this.
#2 The intake session does not constitute a contract for ongoing therapy it merely determines what your needs are and if we would be a good fit together. During this 90 minutes I will take your history, you will tell me what you want and what your goals for therapy are, and create a way to measure success on these goals. This will also be your chance to ask me questions and get to know more about me and my practice. By the end of the 90 minutes we will determine if we will continue to work together.
Continuation of Services
After our 90 minute intake, which is done online, we will schedule a session the following week. I will email you the opening paperwork which you must sign and complete prior to our first session. Included in this paperwork will be a photo copy of your id, verifying who you are, as well as two emergency contacts in the event that you are in crisis.
Sessions are conducted weekly in the beginning and after time, as we move closer to termination due to your progress, we begin to decrease sessions from once a week to twice a month then once a month for maintenance. How long these steps last is based on the individual but therapy typically lasts a minimum of 1 year.
The standard fee per session is $150, and is paid at the time services are rendered. There are many options you can use to pay for each session. These include paying directly using a debit/credit card or using your health savings plan if you have it. There’s also a chance that you can use your insurance to pay for therapy. This is done by seeking reimbursement directly from your incurance company after submitting an superbly also know as Out of Network benefits (OON) but you must remain in contact with your insurance company to verify if you have this type of coverage.
