What Does Couples Therapy Cost?
After our $160 initial hour and a half session, my usual and customary fee is $110 per hour.
Do you take insurance?
Insurance companies do not reimburse for Couples therapy. However, since coverage varies widely, we will check with your insurance company to determine what services your policy includes.
How long will we need to come?
The duration of treatment depends on your individual issues and situation as well as your goals for counseling.
Should I see a man or a woman?
It has been definitively established that gender is not an issue for a trained, experienced therapist. Both male and female therapists are equally prepared to deal with the problems confronting you.
How do you work?
I am trained to help you identify ineffective relationship behaviors that you want that distress your partner and establish a vision of how you want your relationship. I will then work to build your expertise so you can develop the right relationship for you.
How do you protect my confidentiality?
All consultations and records are confidential. Further, no one will be advised of your participation in counseling unless you specifically request it, in writing. The law provides certain exclusions for confidentiality (child abuse, adult or domestic abuse, health oversight, judicial or administrative proceedings, threat to health or safety and worker’s compensation).
