Passages Wellness Counseling for Women provides guidance, support, and motivation during critical life transitions.
What can I expect on my first visit to Passages?
You will be treated with respect, unconditional positive regard and total genuineness. I will listen carefully as you share your reasons for seeking counseling and what you want to accomplish during therapy. We will discuss ways we might work together to help you cope with or resolve your presenting problem. Our focus will be on building a therapeutic relationship based on mutual respect and trust - the most important factor in the success of any therapy.
There is paperwork to read and sign. I will email all paper work to you prior to your intake session for you to out. Then we can spend more time discussing your concerns. If you decide that you would like to continue therapy with me, we will talk about your schedule and set up your next appointment at a convenient time for you. However, if after discussing your needs, you or I feel I am not the appropriate therapist for you, I will try to help you find a therapist that has more expertise and experience in treating your particular issue(s).
What are your fees?
My standard fee is $150 for the initial intake appointment and $120 per hour for all subsequent sessions. I accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Health Savings Accounts, cash and checks.
Do you take insurance?
While I no longer take insurance, I do take into consideration each client's financial situation and if necessary, I will try to work out a payment plan that the client is comfortable with.
What are your hours?
My hours are flexible. I offer week-end and evening hours for your convenience.
Do you see clients online?
Yes. I am Board Certified in Telemental Health. If you prefer online therapy, you will receive an email through Doxy.me with a link that will enable us to meet online, using either your phone, tablet or computer. Doxy.me is a website for health professionals which is HIPAA &HITECH compliant.
