The initial intake is a 90 minute appointment. This provides time to start to get to know each other, understand what brings you in, and get the necessary background history and basic information.

Therapy appointments: a regular session is 45 minutes.

     For Mood Symptoms:
        I recommend at least weekly appointments but meetings may be as frequent or infrequent as mutually agreed upon.

    For Sex Therapy:
        I recommend weekly appointments. This provides time to talk and address any concerns you may have, as well as review the

        previous week’s behavioral exercises and derive those for the coming week.

Medication Management:
After a comprehensive evaluation, we will decide together whether to incorporate medication management into your treatment. I provide medication management as part of the therapeutic process, within the therapy sessions, on an as needed basis.

Payment for Services:
While I do not accept insurance or submit insurance claims on my patient’s behalf, I provide all my patients with an insurance ready, standardized receipt that you may submit for reimbursement. You may want to check with your insurance company to determine how outpatient mental health care is covered and what, if any, pre-authorizations are needed.
