Want to Make a Therapy Appointment?


Imagine how great it would be to feel stronger, more at peace, and overall happier in just a few short weeks. This is what the overwhelming majority of my clients report feeling shortly after starting therapy.

If you’re motivated and ready to get started, I’m glad you’re here! Our first step is to set up a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. On our call, I’ll get a better understanding of your needs/goals and will make sure that I’m the best therapist to assist you. I don’t blindly accept every inquiring new client. I only work with those that I’m extremely confident I can help.

Before we set up a phone call, let’s make sure the logistics work. After too many restrictions and treatment interfering limitations, I chose to opt out of insurance. Therefore, you should feel comfortable self-paying for services. I’m not the cheapest therapist in town but my clients usually see the benefit of therapy very quickly. So consider the value of finding a therapist that is an expert in the area in which you want to improve.

Are you a fellow therapist? I love helping other clinicians too. Let’s get started!

What to expect from the first appointment

At our first meeting, I’ll listen carefully to fully understand your circumstances and what you’d like to make better. I’ll share my ideas and together we’ll develop an action plan. I’ll offer tangible skills and strategies to help achieve the results you seek. It’s not always easy to work on life’s problems, but it is WORTH IT.

Therapy can be rewarding, hope-instilling and even life-changing. Also, it involves a commitment of time, energy, and money. At times, it can be difficult to discuss and/or allocate funds to pay for psychotherapy. This may be caused, in part, by a negative stigma associated with receiving therapy or difficulty spending money on oneself. For many, it’s customary to accept fees associated with a medical bill or paying for the cost of a nice meal, but not for psychological wellness. But like any other expense that is necessary for one’s wellness and self-care, money for psychotherapy can and should be discussed openly. Consider the value of your mental health when allocating funding for therapeutic services.

As in any other business, compensation fees adjust periodically to reflect increased costs of living and one’s growing professional expertise. I offer 15-minute phone consultations free of charge in hopes that you can better evaluate if I am the best doctor to assist you. I offer discounts for those who prefer to take advantage of pre-pay packages. Payment is due at the time of service and cash, credit/debit cards, personal checks are acceptable forms of payment.

In our practice—Bayview Therapeutic Services—we have clinicians with differing credentials, varying levels of experience, and different fees for service. If you or your family is experiencing financial hardship and decide against working with myself or another one of our doctoral-level clinicians, you may consider working with one of our junior clinicians and request a sliding scale fee. Everyone in our practice holds a minimum of a Master’s degree and has been well-trained and supervised.

Cancellation Policy

Therapy can be incredibly helpful and at times it can be hard work. Sometimes it’s tempting to avoid doing that work. I ask that you commit to show up, not only in person but also with a willing, open mind. I too, commit to show up and give 100% to you.

Appointment times are reserved just for you. If a therapy session is missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be billed the full service fee.
