What treatment is offered?

I provide psychotherapy for a wide variety of life issues, including, but not limited to:  transitions/adjustments, grief, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and relationship concerns. I am trained in numerous therapeutic methods, each of which may be useful depending on the patient’s choice, the symptoms being treated, and the appropriateness of the intervention. I usually employ a short-term psychotherapy approach with my patients. This means that counseling is goal-oriented, solution-focused, and directed toward specific problems or symptoms.

 

In our initial session, I will complete an assessment of your concerns and make recommendations regarding treatment. Together we will determine what your goals are for counseling and how we will go about meeting those goals, including verbally agreeing upon a treatment plan.

What does counseling cost?

Behavioral health or mental health is a covered medical benefit provided by most health insurance plans. I am an in-network provider for Medicare, Tricare, CHAMPVA, Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, United Healthcare, Beacon Health, Optum, and other insurance plans. I accept the insurer’s allowed amount (discounted rate) for services, such that you may only be responsible for a copayment or deductible/coinsurance amount.

 

Without insurance, my regular fees are $150 for the intake session (one hour),  $150 for a 60-minute psychotherapy session, and $120 for a 45-minute psychotherapy session.

How do I get started?

You may call or email me if you have questions, would like more information, and/or are ready to schedule an appointment. I am usually in the office Monday – Friday from 9 – 5.
