 A note from Betsy:  If you're going through a tough time in your life, it's important to find the right therapist.  You can expect me to: * Ask direct questions                                                     * Notice what others miss  * Tell you what I really think                                            * Respect your sovereignty                                             * Help you turn insight into action Don't expect me to:  * Sit and nod  * Agree with you all the time  * Avoid difficult topics  * Work harder than you do                                              * Perform miracles very often Between sessions, you'll be practicing whatever skills you've been working on, so you're always making progress--even when I'm not around. Each time we meet, we'll figure out what's working, what's not, and what's next. My job is to make each session challenging and relevant, and give you tools to help you be your brightest self--inside and outside the therapy setting. Intensive Couples Therapy available.  Email me with your request. Office hours and setting:  I work out of a lovely home-office, perched on a hill, and surrounded by trees. I work: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, from 9 a.m. to noon. I answer my own phones. I do not work evenings.  Email or phone counseling sessions:  These sessions are for those who travel, live out of state, or have trouble getting to my office.  You pay for my time.  If you live in the US or Canada, I pay the long distance charge.  Same day, weekend, evening appointments available. Fees:  Therapists typically charge for a "therapeutic hour," which lasts 45-50 minutes. This is not only misleading, but 45 minutes is not long enough to get much work done. My fees are based on either a 60-minute or a 90-minute session.  A 60-minute session is $140.  A 90-minute session is $200.  All couples or family sessions are 90 minutes.  Payment is due at the time of service.  Although I do not accept insurance, some clients have been successful at getting their insurance carrier (including Blue Cross and Medica Choice) to cover a percentage of their therapy on an out-of-network basis.  I'm happy to provide you with claims forms you can submit to your insurance company.  I also accept VISA and MasterCard payments.
