COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION

It is important that we both feel like working together would be a good fit.  For that reason, I offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation prior to beginning treatment. 

INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

Individual therapy is all about the patient as an individual. People seek professional help for various reasons.  I work mostly with adults, although in some cases I work with older adolescents. I do individual therapy, and therapy with more than one person.

SELF AFFIRMING TRANSGENDER THERAPY

The goal of Self Affirming Transgender therapy is to empower, support, and recognize gender variance inherent in our humanity.  Self Affirming Transgender therapy aims at helping you gain insight and self-knowledge to be able to make informed decision about what 'transition' means to you and whether you desire to transition.  Self Affirming Transgender therapy encourages self-exploration and self-expression of your unique identity. You are the only one who can make decisions about your life and I will help and guide you through the process.  

STRUCTURE

Sessions are usually 50 minutes long, starting at the top of the hour, and ending at ten of the hour. Longer sessions and double sessions are available when warranted. Most clients prefer sessions once a week, others prefer more often than that. Some clients finish up, then return a year or two later for a tune up, or to deal with a new issue. Determining the frequency and duration of treatment is a collaborative agreement between the therapist and the client.

FEES

The standard fee is $175 per session. 

INSURANCE

I take Medicare and I am an out-of-network insurance provider.  I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage.  Please review your mental health policy with your insurance company as to whether you are covered.
