When you’re looking for a therapist there are several very important things you need to know. The first thing you as the client want to know is “what’s it going to cost me?” The answer to that is-it depends. I have a very competitive flat rate, but also offer 30 minute sessions at a lower rate those who are unable to afford my standard rate. Please be aware that any time you use insurance to pay for therapy you WILL get a diagnosis that will remain on your medical record. Some of these can be pre-existing conditions, so please make educated choices when considering how to pay.This is why I focus on self-pay.
The next most important thing is to find out what your therapist is interested in because this is what she has done the most research on and (hopefully) the types of clients and situations with which she is most effective. I delve deeply into several areas including couples (any orientation) and those with chronic pain/illness, but I am also highly interested in men’s rights and of course therapy and humans in general. The last thing you need to know is if we will be a good fit. Not being a good fit is no-one’s fault and can greatly help or hinder treatment and while you can only really figure this out in person I will tell you that I am a good mix of compassion and telling you exactly what I see. I’ll support you as I’m telling you all the things everyone else wants to say but won’t or can’t. That old cliché is cliché because it’s true-if it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you. Don’t wait until you’re “ready” to take the first step, life doesn’t wait for us to get prepared.
