Frequently asked questions

How will therapy help me?

Together, we will understand the experiences that have brought you where you are today. We then begin to understand how those experiences color your perspective, thoughts, beliefs, and and how those beliefs impact our daily fuctioning. Through cognitive restructuring, improved communication strategies, and learned coping techniques we begin to strengthen a stronger healthier self.

How long does a session last?

Individual counseling sessions are generally 45-50 minutes long.

How do I pay for therapy?

Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. I accept cash, Venmo or check. A credit card is taken at intake, but NEVER used unless you request it, or your balance is 30 days past due. Currently, I accept Horizon BCBS, Amerihealth, United Health Care and Cigna insurance plans. Many insurance companies offer out of network benefits. Contact your carrier for additional information. Please check with your insurance company to verify benefits. If your insurance changes please let us know.
