In individual therapy the first few sessions will be about creating an environment of trust and also collecting information about your current concerns and goals. During this period your therapist will create a treatment plan that best suits your priorities and desired outcomes.
In couples counseling the first session is about getting to know each other. Your therapist will ask questions about what happens in your relationship that gets in the way of connection and what your hopes are for your relationship. Next your therapist will meet with each of you individually to get a big picture of your situation and learn more about your background.
Each person will be asked the same questions roughly. After the individual sessions, the remainder of sessions will be with both you and your partner. Occasionally it may be helpful to meet one-one-one with your couples therapist. There are no secrets in couples counseling, and when there is an individual meeting we will share with your partner the general outline of what was discussed.
We provide one free cancellation per calendar quarter — regardless of when the cancellation occurs or for what reason.
After that, clients pay for all remaining sessions in the quarter regardless of attendance (unless we need to cancel on our end).

Under the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133 – effective January 1, 2022), health care providers need to give clients or patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
This Good Faith Estimate (GFE) shows the costs of items and services you can reasonably expect for your health care needs.
You have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
The GFE does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You may experience additional charges if complications or exceptional circumstances occur.
You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about four months) of the date on the original bill.
There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this GFE. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a GFE within the following timeframes:
Note: A Good Faith Estimate is for your awareness only and does not require immediate financial commitment or payment.
Keep a copy of this Good Faith Estimate in a safe place or take pictures of it. You may need it if you receive a bill in a higher amount.
