Scheduling an Appointment

Please call my office number at (203) 554-1831 to schedule an appointment. You will not be charged for this phone call. It is a way for you decide whether or not this would be a good fit to help with your concerns. If it seems like it is, the next step is to schedule an in-person intake. If not, I will provide you with referrals for professionals who may be better able to address your needs. The initial in-person appointment will take approximately sixty minutes for initial consultation and intake. Regular weekly sessions will last 45-50 minutes.

Fees and Insurance

Fees will be discussed during the initial phone call. Insurance reimbursement is handled directly by clients. A weekly bill is provided with all of the information necessary to submit to the insurance company. Fees are paid for at the time of service by cash or check.

Cancellations

Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged for the missed session. Payment for missed sessions is billed directly to the client as insurance will not cover the cost of a missed appointment. Cancellations may not be made by email, but by voicemail only.

What to expect

During the initial visit, your personal history and what brought you to therapy will be discussed. We will discuss what circumstances brought you to therapy and what your goals are. Weekly sessions are the most efficient and effective way to meet your goals, allowing for trust to build, information and history to be shared and the most progress to be made.

In case of emergency

Please dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

Use of email

I do not use email/internet to engage in therapy. It is a new form of treatment and its efficacy has not yet been demonstrated. Furthermore, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. I do utilize email for scheduling and intermittent contact with established clients, but phone calls are the best way to contact me. I do return calls within 24 hours unless my voice mail message states otherwise.
