FAQs/Appointments

How long and how many times a week is a typical session?

A therapy session is a 50 minute "hour."  This allows for proper preparation and documentation time before and after each session.  Most clients are seen once or twice a week in the initial stages of therapy.  As a client progresses, the time between therapy sessions increases to every two weeks or once a month.   I encourage all clients to play an active role in determining how often they would like to meet.

How long will I be in counseling?


The length of time a client is in counseling depends on the nature of the problem and the goals of counseling. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in a set course of counseling.  For others, counseling is an on-going learning process and they choose to maintain the therapeutic relationship for an extended period of time.

How much are your Fees and do you take insurance?

I am an in-network provider with several insurance plans.  If I do not accept your insurance and would like to use out-of-network benefits, I am happy to provide all required documentation for you to submit to your personal insurance plan. I ask that you pay the cash rate at the time of service and once forms are submitted to your insurance company, reimbursement will be made directly to you.  I accept cash, check and credit cards.  

Do I need to take medications?


Licensed Mental Health Counselors in the state of FL are not legally authorized to prescribe medications.   Counselors may refer clients to meet with a psychiatrist to determine whether medication management would be of benefit.  A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the treatment of mental health.
