FAQ: SERVICES AND WHAT TO EXPECT
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY FIRST PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION?
Your first therapy session is designed to achieve multiple goals, such as establishing a new relationship with your therapist, getting to know your problem(s), and learning about the ways that psychological treatment might help. Your therapist will ask questions about your experiences and symptoms as well as your background and any information that might help them to better understand who you are. At the end of the session, your therapist will ask if you would like to schedule a time to meet again, which is when the "work" of therapy can truly begin. Please feel free to ask your therapist about their training or approach. It is extremely important for the therapeutic relationship to feel like a good fit!
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
Individual therapy session (50 minutes) - $185
Couples therapy session (75 minutes) - $200
Psychological Assessment - Arranged on a case by case basis - Please inquire!
*Our clinicians consider sliding scale fees, which are adjusted based on reported income. Please ask about our policies and availability.
DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?
Our providers are not on insurance panels. We are considered out-of-network providers. This means that we do not work directly with insurance companies or accept insurance. Our process is to bill clients directly for the cost of the session and then provide any documentation needed to submit an insurance claim. In our experience, most clients receive reimbursement for their out-of-pocket therapy expenses; however, the amount of reimbursement tends to vary by specific plan.
IS VIRTUAL/VIDEO THERAPY EFFECTIVE?
Yes! In fact, our research shows that therapy that takes place via video can be just as effective as in-person therapy. See the article posted to our "Resources" page for more information.
