Do you offer virtual and phone sessions?
Yes, video sessions are common, and often preferred, due to the logistics of travel and schedules. I also offer 1:1 phone coaching.
What is the typical length of meetings with you, and how long does the process take?
The length of sessions varies depending on the topic and service being provided. Individual sessions are usually 45-60 minutes. Couples therapy is typically 60-90 minutes, and Discernment Counseling and Child Specialist meetings are most often 90-120 minutes.
Most of my services tend to be short term and last only until the individual or family crisis is resolved. Six to ten meetings is most common.
How do your fees work, and what form of payment do you accept?
I collect payment for all fees incurred at the time of service, including in-person meetings, video, phone, and email communications. You may pay using cash, credit card, Venmo, PayPal, or HSA account. I do not bill insurance for the services provided, but you may check with your insurance provider to see if they will reimburse for out of network benefits. Please contact me for more information about fees and payment.
What is your policy if I need to cancel an appointment?
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 48 hours beforehand (not including weekends). Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session, with payment expected at or prior to the next appointment.
What if my spouse or family member refuses to participate? Can I come alone?
This is not uncommon, and while the process works best if all the important family members are present to be part of the solution, no one can be forced to get help. I routinely provide perspective and feedback to a spouse or family member alone about how to be strategic, thoughtful and healthy in making decisions about their relationships and future.
