  • What can I expect when I call/email?
    We will respond to your outreach within 24 hours and set up a free 15-minute phone consultation to give you a chance to tell us more about yourself and to ask us any questions. If you feel like it’s a good fit, we will meet for a 45 minute telehealth (video) or in-person session to learn more about your history and clarify your objectives, and schedule further sessions as desired.
  • How do I know if it’s a good fit?
    There is a lot of data that shows that the therapy relationship is a more important factor in treatment success than the type of therapy itself. It can be really hard to open up to a stranger, so it’s ok if it takes a little time to get into a comfortable groove. However, from the get-go you should feel as though your therapist is really listening, curious about your thought process, actively engaged, and open to your feedback.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    We are not “in-network” with any insurance plans; however, we are fully licensed as "out-of-network” providers. If your plan includes out-of-network benefits, we will provide you with a monthly receipt (also sometimes referred to as a "superbill") so you can seek reimbursement from your plan. We do accept FSA/HSA cards as a form of payment if you have allocated funds to an FSA. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are not sure about your coverage- we would be happy to assist you in determining the benefits of your specific plan. We believe strongly in making your healthcare plan work in your favor and getting your money’s worth, and will advocate for this from the get-go.
  • What does therapy cost?
    Our rates for therapy range from $225-275 per 45-minute individual session, depending on practitioner. In an effort to make psychotherapy accessible for all, we can sometimes offer fees on a sliding scale for clients without insurance coverage who can prove financial need. Please call to discuss whether you qualify for this option.
  • What is the "Good Faith Estimate" of expected charges?"
    Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act (also known as the “No Surprises Act”), health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

  • Do you prescribe medication?
    No, but we are happy to provide referrals to psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who we recommend, if you would like a consultation.
  • How long does therapy take?
    This really depends! Therapy can be focused on a single, short-term goal, or a long-term source of accountability and support. But the choice of how long to work with us Is always up to you. We typically recommend starting with weekly appointments to see progress. Once more urgent goals have been met, many clients prefer to check in biweekly or monthly to sustain improvements and to reserve a dedicated space to explore their thoughts and feelings.
  • I’ve been to therapy before. How will this be the same or different?
    We will ask you in the intake about prior experiences of therapy. Some folks come to us looking for a different approach after a negative or unhelpful prior therapy relationship. Others have had positive experiences of therapy and are looking to build on previous growth. Wherever you are on your journey of self-exploration, we will meet you there. We welcome feedback about what has historically worked and not worked well for you.
  • Can individual therapy really help if the problem is located in relationships?
    We often hear from clients, “the problem is my boyfriend/mother/boss, and they won’t come to therapy!” But the fact that they're not in the room doesn’t mean that these relationships can’t change. Often the fastest road to interpersonal change begins by making changes in your approach. Relationships tend to try to repeat the status quo, but if you change the rules of the game, others will have to adjust in turn. The work we do involves practicing new ways of interacting with people in your life that have historically brought up anxiety or conflict. Our clients quickly gain insight into patterned interactions and develop the skills and confidence to try out new ways of relating.
