Services & Fees
What to expect from working with me...
I work with all people and do not discriminate based on religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or gender identity. I provide non-emergency counseling services for children who are struggling with anxiety and the effects of OCD. The first session may be only with the child or with a parent(s)/guardian(s) depending on the age of the child. During this time I will ask a lot of questions so that I can gain an accurate picture of the issues. It is important to be thorough. Throughout the course of treatment, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will also attend sessions and receive support and tools as part of the therapy. However, the work will be the clients. Proper education and buy-in not only from the client but also from the whole family are the keys to success. There will be homework for both the client and the parents so that everyone feels empowered and knows how best to conquer OCD. We work together until the client feels that control is back and OCD is vanquished.
Individual therapy happens in a standard 50 minute session, usually once a week. We work together to come up with goals. Due to the nature of ERP treatment, therapy may happen out in the community or at home depending on exposure exercises. This would always happen with parental supervision and permission for minors.
Therapy -- $100/hour
Payment can be made in cash, check or cards and is expected at time of service. I do not accept insurance. 10% of my practice is at a sliding scale fee. Inquire about availability.
Telehealth Coaching -- $100/hour
I provide coaching to work on issues related to OCD and other anxiety through a conferencing platform via the internet. We "meet" online to do our work together. This is not traditional therapy, but can provide some help. This is not an option for people who are in acute distress or other more serious mental health states. It can be helpful for clients who have successfully used ERP and want a tune-up or who are managing well, but would like to learn some skills to overcome OCD.
Court Services -- $300/hour
If I am required to appear in court on your behalf my fee includes preparation time, wait time, travel time and expenses.
I ask that you please give me at least a 24 hour notice of a cancellation, otherwise, you will be charged the full fee for the appointment. In cases of emergency arrangements can be made, just contact me as soon as possible.
