Whether you are new to therapy or are already familiar with the process, my goal is for you to be comfortable and well informed. Please use the following information as a starting point and ask any other questions that come to mind over the phone or at our first appointment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY FIRST SESSION?
The first session is used to discuss what you're looking to get out of therapy and as an opportunity to get to know each other. It's also an important window to find out if I am a good match for you. If it is a good match, great! If not, don't worry. Let me know that it may not be a good fit and I will provide you with referrals of other mental health professionals who may be a better fit.
Time at the beginning of the first session will also be used to sign paperwork outlining your rights as a client and discuss schedule.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
My rate is $130 for a 55 minute session. I accept cash and check, and offer a $10 discount for cash payment. Payment is due at each session, and I am happy to provide an invoice.
HOW LONG ARE THERAPY SESSIONS?
Sessions for individual, relationship and family therapy are 55 minutes. If you would like occasional longer sessions, or regularly work better with more time, 85 minute sessions are available upon request.
WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL?
I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006 and my graduate degree in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver in 2014.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
In order to protect your privacy, I do not accept insurance. I am happy to provide an invoice at each session that you can submit for reimbursement, if you wish.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
I request 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel or reschedule your session. I do offer two freebie no-shows or late cancellations per year, and after these two are used up, I charge $50 per missed session.
