Scheduling

Please reach out for a free phone consultation and to schedule an initial appointment. Daytime and evening hours are available.

Appointment length

Therapy: Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long.

Personality Assessment: Assessments vary in length depending on your specific needs.

Cancellations

Because I reserve time in my schedule for each patient, missed therapy appointments or cancellations within 24 hours are charged the full fee. 

Fees

Therapy: My fee is $180 per 50-minute appointment. I reserve a few reduced-fee appointments for cancer patients with documented financial limitations.

Personality Assessment: The fee for personality assessment varies. Contact me for a quote.

Insurance

Many of my patients find that their insurance offers some reimbursement for my services. I am an out-of-network provider and will give you all the documentation you need if you choose to seek reimbursement.

You may wish to ask your insurance carrier about your out-of-network mental healthcare benefits, particularly for “CPT code 90834” (therapy).

Emergencies

I do not provide emergency services. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

Questions

I invite you to contact me with any questions about my practice. I try my best to reply to messages personally within 24 business hours (usually sooner).

What to Expect When You Contact a Therapist

If you call me, you’ll get my voicemail and I’ll call you back when I can talk. If you email or text me, we can set up a time to chat on the phone for a few minutes for a free consultation. I’ll make sure that the kind of therapy you’re looking for is something I offer — and if it isn’t, I’ll recommend another therapist in Dallas who can help you out. If it seems to both of us like I might be an appropriate therapist for you, we’ll schedule an initial appointment for you to come to my office. I’ll also give you some instructions about parking, payment, and paperwork (the fun stuff!).

What to Expect in Your First Therapy Appointment

Your first appointment with me is mainly an opportunity to see if I might be a good therapist for you. I’ll ask you questions about yourself, and we’ll discuss what therapy with me might look like, how I will keep your information confidential, and any other questions that you may have. If you feel comfortable with me and think that you want to continue working together, we can schedule more appointments from there, or you can go home and think about it. The appointment will take 50 minutes.
