What are the office hours?

Office hours are:
Monday: 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday: 10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday: 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Thursday: 10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Friday: Limited Appointment Times As Needed

I try to accommodate work and school hours by offering some late afternoon and early evening appointments; however, those times are in great demand and may take longer to schedule.

How long do sessions last?

Sessions are 50 minutes in length.

What is the fee?

The fee is $125 per session for individual, couples, or family therapy. Sessions which are missed or not cancelled within 24 hours of the session are charged at the full rate. Payment is due at the time of service.

I have limited my insurance participation due to the difficulties of managed care and my concerns about confidentiality. I am willing to file insurance for you if you have out-of-network benefits. You would need to check with your insurer and inquire about deductibles and other requirements.

How often are sessions scheduled?

I usually recommend weekly sessions until improvement in the presenting problem is sufficient to warrant extending the time between sessions, but ultimately, the scheduling frequency is up to you.

How long does treatment usually last?

The length of treatment is variable depending on the problem. I do tend to work in a briefer, more solution-focused manner than what is typically associated with the psychodynamic approaches. I also believe in a very fluid approach to therapy which means that people are free to move in and out of therapy as needed rather than committing themselves to a long course of treatment.

Will you prescribe medication for me?

I am unable to prescribe medication as I am not a medical doctor. If medication is needed, I will be happy to make a referral and consult with the prescribing doctor.

Is there any point in coming to therapy for marital problems if my partner won't come with me?

It is a commonly believed myth that it always takes both parties in a relationship to create change. A relationship is a system, and altering one part of a system will create change in the whole. There are things you can do without your partner's participation in therapy that can effect change in your relationship.
