SERVICES

I am offering one-on-one sessions via video-conferencing through a HIPAA-secure application (doxy.me or zoom) to insure privacy.  While different from actual face to face contact, I have found this medium to be very satisfying for clients, and extremely effective in facilitating clients in moving toward their goals.  Sessions can be very focused and conducted in the comfort and privacy of your home, without the need to travel to an office (quite a time-saver!!).

INITIAL CONSULTATION

When you inquire about therapy with me, (by phone or email), I will respond to let you know if/when I have an opening. We might then have a brief phone conversation to clarify what you are looking for help with, answer questions you might have, and to determine if it is a good fit. From there, based on our conversation, we might set up a first appointment. I will ask you to complete some forms prior to our first session. 

The first session is 90 minutes long. Subsequent sessions are 50-55 minutes long.

EXPLORATION / CLARIFICATION OF GOALS

IDENTIFICATION OF WHAT STANDS IN THE WAY OF REACHING THOSE GOALS, AND CLEARING THE IDENTIFIED BLOCKS/OBSTACLES:

This is a very important part of our work.  It's like planning a trip, and making sure we have a map, so we know where we're going and how we're going to get there.  This may take one session, or several sessions.  We may use a psychosensory approach such as Havening Techniques® to assist in getting clarity on this.  

 

This stage will also involve delving into the work on the identified goals and clearing the blocks that have kept you (or are keeping you) from reaching those goals.  You'll be learning techniques that you will be able to use on your own between sessions to enhance your progress.  You may experience the shedding of old limiting beliefs that you've held for most of your life and find the relief and freedom of living life without those limitations.

 

We'll assess together as we go along to make sure we're on track and moving in the right direction for you.  Hopefully we'll be able to check off goals you identified, as you find yourself well on your way to reaching them, or at least with realistic strategies for getting there.

TAKING FLIGHT

During this phase of our work together, we'll strengthen the skills and qualities you've developed, and bring them more and more alive in the present and projecting into the next phases of your transformation.  We'll celebrate your achievements and find ways to assure that you can keep the positive momentum going, even after we've completed our work together. 

PRICING

Initial Consultations

Initial Consultations are free. This is a 20 minute block of time in which we briefly get to know each other and see if we are a good fit.

Video Sessions for Clients with No Health Insurance

For those opting to pay out of pocket (or who do not have insurance that will cover my services), my fee is $150.00 per session. Sessions will generally be 50 to 55 minutes long. I generally allot 90 minutes for a first session, and the cost for this is $225.00.

 

Occasionally, depending on the material we are working on, we may choose to have extended sessions (up to 90 minutes), and the cost will be prorated accordingly.

For clients with financial need and without insurance, I am willing to work out a sliding scale fee on a case by case basis.

I participate with the following insurance companies:

  • Anthem/Blue Cross & Blue Shield
