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. This will allow me to start formulating a treatment plan. 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 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.
$100/ 50 minute "session-hour"
Individual therapy happens in the standard 50 minute sessions, usually once a week. We will work together to come up with goals that are achievable and in-line with what you are wanting to accomplish. Once in awhile therapy may happen out in the community or at home depending on the client and the nature of the fears. This would always happen with parental supervision and permission.
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.
Court Services -- $300/hour
If you request that I help in court or are 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. If you need to cancel for an emergency, then we can work something out.
