More Info About My Practice
I strive to keep session costs low, so we request payment at the time of each session unless you've made prior arrangements. Some insurance plans require you to seek prior authorization before they will pay for your therapy. This varies from plan to plan, so check with your insurer before seeking treatment. Additionally, most insurance plans require you to pay your co-payment or co-insurance at the time of your visit. To make payments as easy as possible, we accept checks, cash, and most major credit cards. If you are uninsured or struggling financially, we offer sliding-scale fees based on income and family size.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
The central focus of therapy is that thoughts, feelings, and intentions can determine what we do. Thus, in therapy it is important to look at how our conditioning has produced one's behavior.
Three things must be taken into account in the study of behavior. The situation in which one's behavior occurs, the behavior itself, and the consequences that follow. The relationship among these three things can be very complex. So it is very important that you choose a caring and trusting therapist to help you untangle them.
Thus, psychotherapy has been shown to have many benefits. Therapy can lead to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress, sadness, shame, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness.
