Sessions are 50 minutes long. In some cases, depending on your needs, we can arrange to meet for longer sessions, or for multiple sessions during the week.
The length of our work together will be a question we visit over time. Among other things, it depends on what your goals are and how much prior experience you have in therapy. Our experience is that, once you decide that the therapy seems useful, the results will come more quickly depending on the depth of commitment to the work. The effort you put in will likely be one of the best investments in your life.
We utilize EMDR therapy, in part, because of how it speeds the process of healing in general. We will do our best to get you relief from struggles and symptoms as efficiently and as effectively as possible.
Before your first session, you can either fill out our forms online, or you can come 15 min prior to your appointment and fill out forms in the waiting room.
During the initial consultation, we discuss any questions you might have about our policies and the law. Your initial session is a time for you to assess your comfort level with your therapist, as well as for your therapist to take an adequate history of your struggles, family history, and life events. We will ask you to tell us more about your circumstances so that we can begin to understand the nature of your dilemmas. We may ask questions to learn more about your dilemma(s). We might also ask questions to help clarify the situation so that we can better understand it. It is very important to determine whether you feel comfortable talking with your therapist. To that end, we ask that you to keep track of your comfort level, thoughts and feelings along the way and always feel free to discuss that with us.
Please call or text us for our current fees. Payment is handled on our secure software and is taken at the beginning of each session. Many people are concerned about the cost of therapy and would like to use health insurance to pay for therapy. Although we do not accept insurance reimbursement directly, we assist clients who would like to submit appropriate forms to insurance.
