commonly asked questions
What is Depth Psychology and what does that look like in therapy?
Depth Psychology is the examination of the unconscious processes that influence and guide your thoughts, interactions, and beliefs about the world. In therapy, it means we’ll pay special attention to the stuff that’s hard to see. The deeper stuff. The stuff that sometimes metaphorically “drives the car.” Through this process, you’ll come into a new kind of knowing. The knowing that comes from seeing the deepest parts of yourself.
What can I expect in a first session?
A first session is an opportunity for me to get a feel for who you are, what some of your concerns might be, and to get an idea of what life has been like for you as of recently. It’s also an opportunity for you to get to know me and my working style. It’s important to feel like your therapist is a good fit for you, so there will be plenty of time for you to ask me questions, too!
Does something have to be “wrong” in order for me to benefit from therapy?
Definitely not! I specialize in working with people who want to “go deeper.” Deeper into understanding who they are, deeper into understanding the world around them, and deeper into understanding why they are the way they are. Sometimes this feels more like something is “missing,” than something is “wrong.”
Do you offer weekday evening or weekend appointments?
I do! I’ve found that many of my clients prefer these time slots. The best way to discuss available appointments is by scheduling a free 15-minute consultation.
Do you take insurance?
I am an out of network provider, which means I do not accept insurance directly. I am able to submit a monthly receipt directly to your insurance for you. If you have any out of network provider benefits, they will reimburse you directly. The best way to find out if you have these benefits is to call your insurance provider directly.
How long is a session, what is the cost, and how do I pay?
Sessions are 50 minutes in length and cost $125/ session. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check, or credit card. At this time, all of my sliding scale spaces are occupied. If you are interested in a sliding scale spot, I would be happy to add you to my waitlist.
What kind of commitment do I need to make?
I ask clients to commit to weekly therapy for a minimum of 12-16 weeks. This is to create consistency and to allow for movement and change to begin to occur. The inward journey is a deep process that takes time, and requires a bond to emerge between you and your therapist. With that said, I understand life happens and you may need to cancel an appointment. No worries! My cancellation policy will be included with your intake paperwork. After 12-16 weeks, we can discuss the possibility of changing the frequency of sessions.
