What to Expect
Telephone consultation: 15 minutes
I offer a free phone consultation to help you determine if I am a good fit for you. At the end of the call we can take next steps, which might include setting up an intake session, or I can help you find the provider(s) or resources you need.
Intake session (80 minutes)
During our first session, we will begin to explore why you are seeking treatment and what you hope to get out of working together. The first "intake" session is 80 minutes because most new patients have a lot to say and it is important for me to hear it. Based on what we discuss, I will present you with treatment options so you can pick what works best for you.
Treatment (8-14 sessions on average)
We will work together to meet your goals. Treatment typically lasts 8-14 sessions, but depending on your particular needs and goals, we can work together for shorter or longer periods of time. You are in charge of your care and I will always work with you to keep a comfortable pace for progress.
I accept Modern Health, and am an out-of-network provider for some insurance plans. For patients with out-of-network benefits, I provide a Superbill that can be submitted to the insurance company for reimbursement. Patients with PPO and POS plans often have this type of coverage.
To verify your out-of-network coverage, contact your insurance carrier (e.g., Aetna, Cigna, etc.) and ask them:
a) what behavioral health services do they cover out-of-network
b) how many sessions do they cover
c) what is the rate of reimbursement
d) what is the deductible.
