Frequently Asked Questions
HOW PSYCHOTHERAPY WORKS
What Can I Expect during my First session?
The first session takes approximately 1-1/2 hours. This phase of treatment is known as the intake assessment phase. During this time, I will be gathering a social history and asking a lot of questions to learn your strengths, world views, and overall treatment goals.
How often will we meet?
Sessions can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly for 45 minutes. Both in-person and HIPPA compliant telehealth sessions are available. The length of treatment typically depends on when your treatment goals are met. For some this can be 3 months, 6 months or 1-2 years.
Do you take insurance?
I am paneled with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. If you have a participating plan, I will bill your insurance following each session. You would be responsible for any co-payments, co-insurance, or balance towards your deductible.
What if I do not have Blue Cross Blue Shield?
You may pay out-of-pocket for therapy. Sliding scale is available. I can provide you with a receipt if you would like to submit to your insurance carrier. Reimbursement is not guaranteed.
