What does therapy cost?
Therapy is an investment in the most important thing in the world- yourself. It takes courage and strength to decide that you are ready to change your life. My rate is $150 for individual and $175 for couples per session. I also offer in-home therapy services for those who are unable to make it into the office (such as mothers with young babies) for an additional travel fee.
Payment is due at the time of each session. I am able to offer a limited number of sliding scale fee appointments during my daytime hours for those who are dedicated to growing their future, but may not be able to afford therapy.
Your commitment to therapy will reserve your time slot each week, and I set aside your appointment time as a special time just for you. If you have a scheduled appointment and do no cancel within 24 hours, you will be charged the full cost of the session.
Is therapy confidential?
Yes! Absolutely. Therapy is confidential and I will not share information outside of the room. However, there are legal and ethical mandates that sometimes require me to share information outside of the room. These are as follows
1. If I believe that you are going to seriously harm yourself or if you have threatened to harm someone else.
2. If any current or past abuse or neglect of a child, elder, or dependent adult is disclosed. I am a mandated reporter and I have to report this information to the appropriate authorities to investigate.
There are also times when you may wish for me to communicate with other people about your treatment. I cannot do this without your written consent. In the instance that you would want me to speak with your doctor or past therapist, I would discuss this in detail with you before allowing you to decide whether you would like to provide written consent for me to do so.
