My Approach to Helping

Sessions are 50 to 80 minutes long except for the initial interview. There we want to get an in-depth view of your difficulties so that we can understand the causes as rapidly as possible. For the initial interview, you'll need to set aside three hours. As far as style, I'm active throughout the session in questioning you and giving you feedback about your personality style, defense, and resistance. Together we'll try to make sense of why you're having difficulties and outline what we can do about it. I'm committed to working as rapidly and efficiently as possible so that you spend no more time in therapy than is necessary.

More Info About My Practice

My hourly fee is $250. I do not work with any insurance companies directly but will give you a statement at the end of each month for submission to your insurance company. Reimbursement can in no way be guaranteed as this matter is solely in the hands of the insurer.
