for those who want to know the answers
Here is a list of common questions I have the answers to:
Do you take insurance?
At this time, I accept self-pay clients as well as am in network with BlueCross Blue Shield, Blue Choice, and PAI. I offer a complementary service of having your benefits verified for you prior to your first appointment so that you know what payment you will be responsible for at your appointment.
How long will I have to come to therapy to see progress?
Ah, the famous question. Progress is dependent on so many factors and really depends on each individual. I know, probably not the answer that you want to hear. What I do recommend is that you start out seeing me weekly and then as we collaboratively agree that you are making progress on your goals, we taper off to biweekly appointments.
Are you a 12-step based addictions counselor?
I am not affiliated with a 12-step based therapy technique. I believe that addiction recovery is a process and that progression in one’s recovery is based off of the person’s motivation and willingness to change. I believe that 12-step based practices are extremely efficient for so many people and have saved many people’s lives through the organizations’ support, although I hold the view that there are many approaches to how one can live a life in recovery from addiction.
I’m self-pay, so What are your fees?
While fees are always subject to change, currently my 1 hour individual counseling fee is $105 and the first session intake fee is $120. This includes the 1 hour counseling session in addition to access to an online, confidential client portal and 24/7 access to get in touch with me in an easy, convenient way. The 1 hour counseling session is standard for most clients.
