Usually once a week. The flow of counseling is more effective on a weekly basis, particularly for the first month. After specific progress has been achieved, your schedule may be amended depending on the therapeutic strategy.
What is an "EAP", and are you on these type of panels?
An EAP is an Employee Assistance Program, which is a program offered through your workplace that typically has a counseling
coverage component. Usually these programs offer anywhere from three to twelve counseling sessions free of charge to you,
and/or anyone who lives with you currently. When you call to get an authorization to see me, your plan will inform you how many sessions you are eligible for. I currently accept all major EAP plans, simply check with your workplace to see if they offer one. The EAP can be a different company from your major insurance plan.

You may be responsible to meet a deductible before the insurance coverage goes into effect for you. If this is the case, you will remit what the carrier would pay me for each session. You may owe a co-insurance payment after each session.These payments are usually a percentage of what the carrier remits to me.
What if I want to pay you privately?
Often, clients will choose to self pay for increased confidentially due to not wanting their personal information disclosed during the
medical billing process. If you do not want any billing involved, or if you do not have a plan that covers counseling services, I do offer a sliding scale fee schedule. This schedule is dependent upon what your household income is per annum. Please see
the "Intake Form", section (Financial Policy) for details.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Cash, checks, HSAs or major credit cards are all accepted.
When is payment due?
All deductible payments, co-insurance payment, or session fees are due at the beginning of the session.
