Before we meet
As you consider whether or not you would like to come in for an appointment, I encourage you to contact me directly for a 10-15 minute telephone consultation. During this conversation, I invite you to share with me an abbreviated version of the issues or concerns that are leading you to seek treatment or assessment at this time. After this discussion, we can determine if there is a mutually agreeable time for us to set an initial consultation.
The most important variable to success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship. I encourage you to come in for an initial one-hour consultation so you can better determine whether you feel you would benefit from working collaboratively with me. During the consultation phase, my goal is to understand the concerns in detail, so I can determine if and how I might be most helpful to you. Likewise, these sessions will provide you the opportunity to experience how we could work together and your comfort level in talking to me. If, for whatever reason, we determine I am not the right fit, I will be happy to provide other referrals in the Northern Virginia/Metropolitan DC area.
I am currently an in-network provider for CIgna, Carefirst and Anthem BC/BS.
The fee for a 50-minute session is $175 payable by cash, check or credit card at the time of service.
Please contact your insurance carrier to understand your benefits. I will provide you with the documentation needed for your submission for reimbursement.
