FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I expect at first?


Therapy is a partnership. For therapy to be successful, I need to feel that I can help you. You have to feel that I am the right therapist for you or your family member. When we first meet, we will get to know each other and decide if I am the right therapist for you.




What are your office hours?


Generally I have office hours Tuesday through Friday, by appointment.




How soon can I be seen?


The first appointment can usually occur within one week, depending, of course, on your availability. If you have an urgent situation, I will make every effort to see you as soon as possible.




How long are appointments?


Appointments are 50 minutes in length, unless we make other arrangements. When people live far away, a 90-minute session may be preferable. You will be at the first appointment for about one hour, since I ask you to arrive 10 minutes early to complete the registration paperwork.




Can you make referrals to other professionals?


Part of my job is to help you get all the help you or your family members need. If necessary, I will refer you to trusted colleagues for educational testing, speech and language services, nutrition counseling, other forms of therapy or medical evaluations.




Do you take insurance?


I do not accept insurance and I am not on any insurance panels. Private Pay Fee: $170.00 per 50-minute session Many people get reimbursement through out-of-network benefits or submit to their flexible spending accounts. I am happy to provide you a itemized receipt, called a Superbill, to submit to your insurance company or your flexible spending account for reimbursement. While paying for therapy may seem like an unnecessary or unreachable expense, remember that you are investing in the mental health and well-being of yourself or your family. This is an investment that can pay off for generations to come.




How do I book an appointment?


To schedule an appointment, please contact me. I see clients in my Concord, Massachusetts office, which has a large, lovely waiting room, plenty of free parking, and is easily accessible from major roads.
