Frequently Asked Questions
How often and how long are therapy sessions?
Most individual therapy sessions last 50 minutes and are typically scheduled for once per week. For clients with more significant impairments, I may recommended longer or more frequent sessions. Therapy sessions may also be decreased in length and/or frequency as therapy goals are mastered.
For consultations and parent support or training sessions, we might schedule for 50- or 80-minute sessions, depending on the need.
Prior to beginning therapy with me, we will discuss your specific needs and decide together what will work best for you. Please contact me for a free phone consultation.
How long do psychological evaluations take? When will I get results?
Psychological and psycho-educational evaluations take place across several days. I typically test in the mornings. During the first testing session, I gather background history, conduct diagnostic interviews, administer questionnaires, and describe the assessment procedures going forward. The following 2 to 3 sessions involve direct assessment of the client (e.g., IQ tests, academic achievement measures, autism evaluations, etc.). Each session typically lasts 2-4 hours, depending on the client’s age, test battery, and other factors. Within 4 weeks after the evaluation is completed, the client and/or parents or legal guardians will be offered a feedback session to review the results of testing and recommendations. A comprehensive written report will be provided to the client and/or client’s legal guardians.
How much do therapy sessions cost?
Fees vary by length of session and modality of treatment. I offer concierge services for all my clients. Limiting the number of clients I see allows me to be available for supplemental meetings or phone calls in between sessions if needed, consult with other professionals involved in your or your family member’s care, increase the frequency or duration of sessions as needed, and address other issues that may come up. Most of these services are offered at no additional cost to you.
To discuss fees for your needs, please contact me. Payments are due at the time of services. I accept cash, check, and credit card.
