Sessions are 53 minutes in length. I see most clients once a week in the beginning, then, as time goes on, every other week and then monthly. Most clients then transition to checking in only as the need arises after that.
The length of time a client is in counseling depends on the nature of the problem and the goals of the 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 receive counseling for a longer period of time. The number of sessions depends on your current needs, availability, and desire to grow. Some people are in and out in 6 months and others are in to work for a few years. It's really about what is best for you and your mental health as determined by you with my input.
My fee is $120 per session. If my regular charge is unrealistic for you, please feel free to discuss this with me--I do have a sliding fee scale. Payments are to be made at the end of each session. This includes co-payments. I will only bill your primary insurance and require payment after that. I can provide you with any paperwork you need for you to bill your secondary.
