Frequently asked questions
CAN I BOOK AN INTAKE SESSION?
If our services feel like a good fit for your needs, we offer a 20 minute complimentary phone consultation to meet with you and discuss your needs and explore any questions you may have about our practice.
Our hourly fee is $160. Typically sessions are scheduled for 2 hours, or for half day or all day intensives. Intensive treatments are billed by the half day or whole day. Phone calls and correspondence with client or on the client's behalf are charged on a prorated basis based on our hourly fee. For more information on EMDR intensives, follow the link below.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
We have found that working in an intensive format supports clients in reaching their therapy goals more quickly, efficiently, and with lower overall costs. We meet with clients for a minimum of 2 hours a session. Depending on your goals and needs, we may decide to work in half day or whole day blocks, sometimes over several consecutive days. We strive to support clients in getting their needs and goals met have a set day and time for each of our clients, as we have found consistency serves our client's progress. At times, a client's need may increase, and more frequent visits become necessary for a period of time. If you prefer to work through your goals at a more rapid pace, or you have experienced a recent loss or traumatic event, we can provide intensive sessions, of half day or all day treatment, even over consecutive days.
HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Our practice is private pay and we do not participate with any insurance companies. However, if you have a PPO plan and you would like to use your insurance to cover services provided, please contact your insurance provider directly to inquire about coverage for an "out of network provider." You will be responsible for payment of sessions at the time of service, and I will provide you an monthly invoice, at your request, that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. You will be responsible to coordinate with your insurance company regarding reimbursement to you. We do not communicate or coordinate with insurance companies.
DO YOU PROVIDE INTENSIVE TREATMENT?
Yes. Intensive treatment can be advantageous for several reasons.
If you have experienced a recent traumatic event or loss that is impacting your ability to sleep, focus, care for yourself or engage in your daily activities, attending treatment for multiple sessions in a week, or multiple, concurrent half-day or all day sessions can provide you the care you need, in a short period of time, to process the traumatic event and begin integrating back into your life.
If you live out of the area or your regular schedule makes it difficult to engage in weekly sessions over an extended period of time, and you would like address treatment goals in a compressed period of time, intensive sessions over several days or a week, may be a good fit for you.
EMDR intensives can also be a good fit for someone who prefers to “get it done”, addressing traumatic memories in compressed period of time versus over several weeks or months. There are some advantages to this approach. First, we spend less time opening and closing sessions, as we must on a week to week basis, which allows us more time for processing and healing of trauma. We are able to concentrate more intently on your treatments needs and goals, without the week to week issues that inevitably arise in the course of more standard, weekly treatment approaches. Your investment is higher up front, but typically you save in having to dedicate fewer hours cumulatively to treatment.
