What type of services do you provide?

I provide behaviorally oriented parent training services using empirically-based interventions to decrease or eliminate challenging behaviors and increase appropriate behaviors for children with developmental delays. I also provide group trainings for schools/organizations on general behavior management skills.

What should I expect at the first appointment?

Prior to the first appointment you will complete a free 15-minute phone consultation as well as consent forms.

The first appointment is a time for me to get to know you and your child. At the first appointment I will ask you questions and observe your child to gain a better understanding of their current challenging behaviors. During this time we will also discuss treatment goals and complete necessary paperwork.

Why do I need to participate?

Caregivers are the driving force of change. You know your child best and spend the most time with them, and by working together to support your child we can make the most change.

What do sessions look like? What do I have to do in session?

During session we will discuss progress from the week prior and review homework. Next, we will discuss an intervention and practice together in session. Homework/at-home practice will be discussed at the end of session.

What do I need to do between session?

True behavior change does not happen over night. Practicing the recommended skills between session and being consistent over time is the key to success. Between sessions it is important to complete homework logs (if necessary) and return them to the next session.

How many sessions?

This answer is unique to each child and family. That being said, I provide relatively short-term therapy where our sessions are goal oriented and focused on a specific problem behavior. Sessions are scheduled more frequently in the beginning of treatment and then lesser over time as behaviors improve and goals are reached. I don’t believe that it is helpful to stay in therapy once goals are reached and would much rather your family spend time doing other things that you enjoy. That being said, after goals are reached and the client is discharged, clients are welcome to re-initiate services if other problem behaviors or difficulties arise in the future.

What does it cost?

$200 per session (50 minutes). I accept cash, all major credit cards, and HSA cards as forms of payment. 

Do you accept insurance?

I am an Out of Network therapy practice, meaning that I do not accept insurance. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be reimbursed in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan reimburses you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
  • What paperwork do I need to provide to receive reimbursement for mental health services?

What is your cancelation policy?

If you are unable to attend a scheduled session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
