The number of appointments that you will have in therapy depends on the severity of the issue and the number of goals that are set. We can discuss this further at your first appointment. Therapy sessions usually last about 45-50 minutes. The first session may take longer and will be many questions regarding the reason you are seeking therapy as well as history information regarding family, social, school, work, health, and the history of the issue you are seeking therapy for.

READ THE INSURANCE INFORMATION
Before your first appointment, you will need to contact your health insurance company to ask about your "outpatient mental health benefits" provided to you "in the office." There is a section in the intake packet for you to fill in information based on the contact with your insurance company. You will need the following information: how much your deductible is, how much of your deductible has been met, whether you have a co-pay and how much it is, how many sessions are authorized, and an authorization number. Also, please provide the billing address for the insurance company, after you verify the address with your insurance company at the time of the telephone call.
