Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your cost per session?
    My rate for a 50-minute individual therapy session is $255 and for a 60-minute couples therapy session, $270. My associates offer lower rates for services and can also offer additional sliding scale services for clients in need. Feel free to inquire with them directly as finances should not be a deterrent to seeking therapy.
  • Do you take insurance?
    I and my associates do not accept insurance plans directly. Dependent on your insurance plan, we can provide you with a monthly superbill for services rendered that you can submit directly to your insurance for partial reimbursement. Prior to beginning therapy, please contact your insurance company to determine your reimbursement rates for behavioral health services by an “out of network” provider. Please note that insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis in order to qualify for reimbursement.
  • Do you offer a free phone consultation session?
    Yes! Please feel free to contact me to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. This will also give us both a sense if we might be the right fit. If I can’t accommodate your for any reason or if I feel my associates or other clinicians might be a more appropriate match, I will do my best to provide you with referrals.
  • What to expect at the first session?
    The session will consist of reviewing the Informed Consent and policies for therapy. We will discuss your reasons for seeking treatment and determine your goals. The first session is primarily focused on building rapport and determining whether my style and your needs are aligned.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    I require a 48-hour notice of cancellation to avoid a full payment fee for a missed session.
  • How long with I be in treatment?
    Some clients prefer short term treatment and wish to conclude treatment when their initial goals for treatment are resolved. For other clients, they prefer longer term therapy. There is no right way or one size fits all. Terminating treatment is typically a collaborative conversation between you and me, although treatment is voluntary and you can ultimately choose to end treatment at any time.
  • Do you offer virtual sessions?
    I offer both virtual counseling and in-person counseling. In person sessions are always preferred but I do understand when virtual is required. Please discuss your preferences with Mona directly.
