Counseling is a personal and often intimate experience. It's unlike many professional relationships -- it requires trust and safety. Please feel free to arrange a 30 minute consultation. You'll have a chance to make sure that sessions will beneficial. (And we can get some of the necessary paperwork out of the way when sessions do begin.)
Sessions typically last 55 minutes. (Some insurances limit the time to 45 minutes.) Depending on your needs and preference, sessions can take on very different rhythms, styles, and direction. Typically I suggest meeting on a weekly basis when counseling begins. If anything, I believe building insight and creating change are the purposes of counseling. The opportunity to sit with another person, offers insight that other experiences cannot. The real change then comes between sessions. The frequency of sessions can always change later. I charge $145 for each session.
For certain reasons, extended sessions may be helpful. Usually they're used for assessment and planning future sessions. When using EMDR longer sessions can also be more effective in completing the reprocessing protocol. Couples often appreciate the extra time that extended sessions provide. If extended sessions are necessary, I will plan them with you ahead of time.

I'm happy to work with other insurance companies if I'm not a prefered provider. Typically they will cover a certain percentage of the fee.
