Frequently Asked Questions

These are commonly asked questions about therapy services.

What is your fee for therapy sessions?

My fee varies based on session type, length, and client need. I offer automatic discounts to priests, religious, and missionaries (including FOCUS missionaries). I go over my current fees and payment in detail during the initial consultation.

How many sessions are typical?

The typical client attends 4 to 6 sessions for an experience that is brief and transformative. Some prefer a longer term relationship for ongoing support, or to work through more complex issues from childhood.

Can I use insurance to pay?

For a number of reasons I do not bill insurance directly for clients. However, I can send you a receipt that you can self-submit to insurance. Some plans provide out-of-network reimbursement for teletherapy sessions.

How frequently do we meet?

For a typical client, I recommend meeting once per week at first. Once we get some momentum, we can then space sessions out. However, I understand the need to space sessions out right away due to financial or time limitations.

Which is better - phone or Zoom?

Phone tends to be more reliable and convenient. Zoom offers a more personable face-to-face interaction. I find both to be just as effective as in-person therapy for most cases.

How is the Catholic Faith integrated?

I offer the opportunity to pray at the start of sessions and to use the resources of Faith as needed during the work. For those who are comfortable, more direct prayer and spiritual interventions during sessions may be fruitful.
