What should I expect in my first session?

The first session is an opportunity for us to get to know one another. We will discuss the concerns that bring you to counseling, your goals for therapy, some of your history, and some details regarding initial paperwork, scheduling, and payment. I invite you to come to the first session with questions about treatment, how symptom improvement works, and long-term treatment planning. 

Most importantly, you will leave with an understanding of why your personal or relational circumstances have become difficult, and you will begin to understand how change in your present situation can occur.

Counseling works best when you attend sessions weekly, at least in the beginning. In the first couple of sessions, we will come up with a treatment plan that will inform how often we will meet. In the end of our first session is a time to confirm that we’re a good fit in a therapeutic relationship.

How long is a session?

A standard session is 50 minutes long. However, 90-minute sessions are also available. Some clients in more pressing circumstances may find these longer sessions more suitable for their needs.

What is the session fee?

My fee is $200-$220 per 50 minute session.

Do you offer a sliding scale? 

Yes, I do offer a sliding scale in certain circumstances. If you would like to discuss the sliding scale with me, please leave me a voicemail at 562.508.0059 and I will return your call promptly.

Do you accept insurance?

I am not on any insurance panels, and I am unable to accept HMO insurance. As an out-of-network provider, however, I am able to accept most PPO insurance policies, which can help offset the cost of psychotherapy. I am happy to provide you with a superbill that you may submit to your insurance company to obtain reimbursement.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept payment by cash, check, and credit card, specifically Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Payment is due at the beginning of each session.

Do you offer free phone consults?

Yes, I offer a free 20 minute consult. During your initial call, we’ll answer all of your questions, including any concerns you may have about the fee and using your insurance policy. If you’re ready to begin, please call me at 562.508.0059 or email  don@soulrestorationproject.org to schedule your initial session.
