Why is the cost so high for therapy? The price for therapy is an investment. You can think of spending $150 and gaining answers to problems that will help you for the rest of your life, or you can not spend $150 and continue to have the challenges you are having. A live human answers questions, listens to you intensly and strutures a program and recommendations that is very specific to you. It is a way of having a tailor made plan for your life that is very specific to you. This cost also covers the operating systems used to keep your information private, the billing system used to make payments easy and transferrable, taxes, as well as the skill, knowledge and time your therapist invested in order to assist you. You will speak privately to a professional that has studied human behavior and pathology. You are also guaranteed to not have your buisness on the streets! A therapist is a bonofide confidant that will help you do life better and feel better about life. It is an investment that is very specific to your very unique life challenges, personality and upbringing. Tailor made treatment plans and programs are an investment.

How does therapy work? You will likely start seeing your therapist 2x -4x a month when first starting out treatment. As your progress you can likely decrease how often you are seen. You will have a consecutive time for your sessions. If you do not think you can commit to 2x a month or 4x a month at the start of treatment, then it is recommended that you seek services at another private practice. If you would like referrals we can offer that to you during your consultation.
