General Process for Psychotherapy
Initial phone or email interview
It is important to have a good alignment between you as the client and me as the clinician. This allows me the opportunity to ensure that the symptoms you're suffering from fall within my scope of practice.
The intake interview is where I learn about you and your symptoms. It allows me to "walk in your shoes." This helps me better understand the symptoms you are suffering from, build an initial conceptualization of the psychopathology, and collaboratively establish treatment options that fit you best.
Follow up sessions
Follow-up sessions allows us to identify the idiosyncratic characteristics of your symptoms, learn about the psychopathology we will be collaboratively targeting, and learn and implement psychotherapeutic interventions to help reduce your symptoms. Sessions are typically 60 - 90 minutes for approximately 12 - 16 weeks.
Think of these sessions as periodic "check-ups" after completing your treatment. You can schedule these sessions 3, 6, or even 12 months out. They allow you to maintain the progress you have made and process any new symptoms or situations you may have encountered.
My fees are comparable to other anxiety specialists. Fees are outlined within my intake packet which can be sent to you upon request. Fees are due at the time of service. Cancellation details and other fees are outlined within my intake packet.
At this time, I do not accept insurance. However, upon request, my practice can provide a detailed receipt of treatment, including appropriate billing codes, which you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. My practice does not guarantee your insurance will reimburse you for psychotherapeutic treatment as insurance plans vary significantly.
Great question! My credentials are something you should be asking to ensure you are comfortable with my clinical training. Here is a link to learning about my credentials and clinical training: Learn more
No, there is no commitment to a specific number of sessions. Typically, clients book out several sessions to ensure a spot on my schedule, however, you can schedule appointments one week at a time. A long-term commitment is not required.
Unfortunately, no. Given the complex nature of psychopathologies and the idiosyncratic nature of individual presentations, it is difficult to make any guarantees. I utilize scientific, evidenced-based interventions that show approximately 70% – 75% efficacy rates in individuals suffering from anxiety and related disorders. When treating anxiety and related disorders, the saying “you get out what you put in,” applies. One guarantee I can make is that I will do my utmost to help you live a value-driven life.
