Why do people go to therapy?

People choose to go to therapy for different reasons.  Some attend for personal growth while others may attend for self-exploration or current life circumstances.  

Do I have to have "problems" to go to therapy?

Many people attend therapy for personal growth and understanding.  Learning tools that can help with day to day activities and learning about oneself are just a few reasons why people can attend. 

What is your theoretical orientation?

I practice mostly from a psychodynamic perspective but utilize components of other orientations including cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice.

How long are sessions and how often do I need to attend?

Sessions are typically 45-50 minutes in length and once a week but attending more than once a week is also an option depending on circumstances.

Do you take insurance?

I am currently contracted with Medicare.  Since I am not on the panel for other insurance companies, I am considered an “out of network” provider.  In this case, I can provide you with a Superbill at the end of the month, which you can submit to your insurance. You will be reimbursed a certain amount depending on the type of insurance you have.

What is the cost for therapy?

The first session together can serve as a consultation so that we can get to know each other and see if working together is a good fit.  We can then work together in setting an appropriate and reasonable fee.
