How much do sessions cost?
Session cost typically starts at $135 per 50 minute session. However, due to the stresses of our current covid-19 pandemic, we are happy to offer a sliding scale for therapy costs that starts at $85 per 50 minute session. We’re trusting people to take advantage of the sliding scale only if they need it – please let us know. We want to support you.
How long is a typical session?
While it’s difficult to predict ahead of time how long you will want or need therapy, we generally recommend at least 6-8 weekly sessions in order to make progress and see change.
After that, we find that every other week sessions or monthly check-ins are helpful to make sure that progress is maintained while therapy is lessened. After a few check-ins, we can say goodbye knowing that you can always call us again if you need to.
How will I know when I’m ready to stop coming to therapy?
Typically, you and your therapist will create goals at the beginning of therapy. When you and your therapist feel that you have met these goals, you’ll start working on a treatment termination plan that helps you sustain your progress independently. Sessions will be scaled back from weekly to every other week, and eventually to monthly check-ins.
Therapy is also voluntary, so while we may recommend this process of ending therapy, you are also welcome to decide that you are finished with therapy at any time. We will respect your choice to end therapy if you choose to do so.
