What can I expect in my first session?

The first session is focused on getting to know each other a little bit more.  We’ll discuss what brings you to therapy and I’ll get some background information about you and your goals.  I’ll also go over initial paperwork, scheduling, and payment.  Most importantly, I hope that you will feel a sense of connection in our time together and have an understanding of what to expect in therapy.

How does therapy work?

Therapy is a time for us to discuss the areas in your life that are important to you.  Together, we’ll identify and process through areas that have been difficult and which you feel hold you back in your life.  My work is grounded in Psychodynamic and Emotionally Focused Therapy, which has been shown to resolve difficulties that patients commonly deal with.

Do you take insurance?

I am an out-of-network provider and can accept most PPO insurance policies, which can help offset the cost of therapy.  However, I do not accept HMO insurance policies at this time.

Do you offer a sliding scale?

I offer a limited number of sliding scale appointments based upon certain circumstances.  You can contact me and we can discuss further to see if appropriate.
