Payment Options:

You can either pay by cash, or check at the time of the session.  You can also pay by credit card online through PayPal, click the following link to do so.  Private pay clients are offered additional discounts utilizing the online payment options.


First Session Preparation:

First sessions typically begin by tending to administrative concerns, such as obtaining insurance information, determining appropriate methods of contact, discussing payment options, etc. 


Once the administrative details are addressed, first sessions typically seek to clarify the issues that led you to seek counseling.  It is also necessary for me to clearly understand your efforts at resolving these issues, as well as what a successful resolution of them would look like for you.  Once this information is clarified, possible treatment options are then discussed. 


Of note, it is possible to avoid the administration portion entirely by addressing these matters prior to your appointment (see paperwork download).  This is highly recommended, as people are usually eager to discuss their concerns as soon as they walk through the door.  Additionally, because insurance companies often restrict sessions to 50 minutes, completing the paperwork ahead of time allows us to spend more time addressing your concerns.
