Frequently asked questions about the process of beginning therapy
and the investment costs
What is therapy?
Therapy involves sharing as openly as honestly as possible, being open to receive feedback and suggestions, trying on new behaviors and ways of being in the world, and learning specific techniques designed to help improve your quality of life, functioning, and overall happiness and well-being.

How do I get started?
The first critical piece of therapy is determining whether we will have rapport and trust to lay the foundation for a strong therapeutic relationship. We can begin with a complimentary consultation if that would be helpful to determine how these services may be helpful to you. I can also lay out my therapeutic orientation, and we can explore both of our expectations for how the therapeutic relationship will work to determine if this is a good fit.
During our first scheduled appointment and intake, we begin by exploring your history, as well as your current strengths and areas for growth. I will begin thinking through possible treatment plan recommendations and options designed specifically for you. During our next appointment, we will collaboratively develop a treatment plan with your particular goals and objectives in mind. From that launching point, we have a working foundation to begin therapy.

Why don't you accept insurance?
I have decided not to utilize in-network insurance benefits because there are several limitations to using your medical insurance and benefits to private (out of pocket) payment:
