Common Questions

Is Therapy Right for You?

Deciding to pursue therapy is a personal choice, driven by various factors. Whether you're grappling with long-standing psychological issues, managing anxiety or depression, or adjusting to unexpected life changes like divorce or career transitions, therapy can provide invaluable support, insight, and new strategies.

Therapy can address a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, unresolved childhood traumas, grief, stress management, body image concerns, and life transitions. It's beneficial for individuals committed to maximizing their quality of life, fostering self-awareness, and effecting positive change.

Do You Really Need Therapy?

While you may have effectively managed previous challenges, seeking extra support when needed is commendable. Therapy isn't just for those in crisis—it's for individuals with the self-awareness to recognize when they require assistance. Taking the step to seek therapy demonstrates accountability and a commitment to change, providing long-lasting benefits and empowering you with tools to navigate life's obstacles.

How Can Therapy Help You?

Participating in therapy offers numerous advantages, including support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies. Therapists can assist with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, personal growth, family concerns, and daily life stressors. Through therapy, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, develop healthier relationships, find resolutions to your concerns, manage stress and emotions, and cultivate new problem-solving skills.

What Is Therapy Like?

Each therapy session is tailored to your individual needs and goals. Sessions typically last around 50 minutes and may occur weekly. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on specific issues, or longer-term, addressing complex challenges or personal growth. Between sessions, you may be encouraged to engage in certain activities, such as reading or practicing new behaviors, to integrate therapeutic insights into your daily life.

What Is the Cost of Therapy?

The cost of therapy is in line with standard fees for professional therapeutic services. Individual psychotherapy sessions are priced at $250 per 53-minute hour. Payment can be made via cash, check, credit/debit cards, PayPal, Zelle, or FSA/HSA cards. Your payment information will be securely stored to streamline the billing process, ensuring a focus on your therapeutic journey.

Do You Accept Insurance?

I am contracted with United Health Care/Optum, Aetna, and Cigna. I can accept all PPO insurance plans.

While some insurance is accepted, there are advantages to not utilizing insurance. Your treatment is guided by your needs, not dictated by insurance requirements. If you seek insurance reimbursement, courtesy billing or superbill assistance is available, but full payment is expected after each session.

Is Therapy Confidential?

Therapy sessions are confidential, with few exceptions required by law. These exceptions include suspected abuse of minors or vulnerable adults, threats of harm to others or oneself, or non-cooperation with safety measures.
