I strive to provide a safe, secure and confidential environment. As a result I do not connect with clients (present or former) via social media. Outside of the provisions of my Privacy Practices notice I do not acknowledge inquiries about current or former clients.
General Appointment Information
I offer appointments on weekday mornings, afternoons, and evenings. You may choose to come anywhere from once or twice per week to every week day. Frequency of sessions is your choice, and is based on your needs, preferences, and goals for therapy. This is also something we can discuss together.
How to Set Up a First Appointment
If you decide you'd like to work together, you can contact me by email or phone to discuss setting up a first appointment. I generally suggest that we think of the first appointment like a consultation, where you can tell me more about yourself and why you're seeking therapy, and get a feel for who I am and if you think we'd be a good fit. After that appointment, if you decide you'd like to keep working together, we can make arrangements to do so; if not, I can offer referrals to help you find another therapist
Fees & Payment
I am part of the Troy Psychotherapy group practice. I am in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield through this practice. If you have a different insurance, I can assist you with seeking out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance company, or submit to a Health Savings Account for reimbursement.
My session fee for patients paying out of pocket is $100. I offer 45 minute sessions unless required otherwise by your insurance company. I am sometimes able to offer a reduced fee on a limited basis. If you think you may need a reduced fee, please contact me directly to discuss possibilities for making such arrangements.
I accept payment through cash, check, or credit card.
Cancellations / Rescheduling
I require 48-hour advance notice of a missed session. Without this notice, you will be required to pay the full session fee. I charge for missed sessions because I am unable to offer this time to another person; this is standard practice in the mental health field.
