Sessions will generally last 50 to 60 minutes. Families, groups, and couples often benefit from 90 minute sessions.Because the focus of therapy is on life transition most treatment is brief and lasts no longer than four months at a time. However, it is difficult to predict how many sessions you may want at the onset of therapy, however; the number of sessions and the frequency will depend on you, the nature of your goals and the weight of your concerns.
Payment is expected at the time of each session. You may pay by cash, check or charge via stripe (Visa, Discovery, Master Card). Clients may set up a preferred payment method through their client portal and their card of choice will be run after the session has completed.
I do not currently accept insurance. Keep in mind that most insurance companies limit sessions, session times, and require a mental health diagnosis in order to reimburse expenses. I would be happy to provide you with any information necessary for you to independently file out-of-network.
Skype sessions are available. However, these sessions are only available short term to therapy clients who regularly meet in person and reside in the state of Texas. We will talk in person to set up the details of all tele-therapy sessions.
24-hour notice is required to cancel or change an appointment. Otherwise you will be charged for the reserved time according to our agreed upon fee. In cases when you arrive late for a session, your session will end at the scheduled time and you will be charged for the full session.
