"When we are no longer able to change a situation,
we are challenged to change ourselves."
Psychotherapy is an active process for both the client and therapist. Guided by the client's focus and goals, therapy may take the role of gaining increased understanding of the self, identifying challenges in relationships or behavioral patterns, or identifying areas for growth. More than a place to learn coping strategies, psychotherapy is an in-depth process of understanding and changing what has created the presenting concerns. While diagnosis may be an aspect of this, especially when medication is being considered, it is not the focus of treatment.

When medication or therapy aren't working, your symptoms are having a negative impact at home, work, or school, or very serious symptoms have developed, psychodiagnostic assessment may be suggested as a way to clarify what exactly is happening so it can be addressed the most effective way possible by your therapist and/or psychiatrist.
Referrals for testing are a good fit for clients with complex presentations or confounding variables impacting symptomatology. The report is designed to answer specific referral questions including diagnostic clarification, differentiation between state and trait symptoms, intellectual functioning, current psychosocial stressors, adaptive ability, and evidence-based treatment recommendations.
Fees and Payment
Your fee and co-pay amount is determined by your insurance company. If not using insurance, standard fees for individual psychotherapy sessions are $150, $150 an hour for diagnostic testing, $200 for intake or gender assessments, and $220 for couple's or family sessions. A limited number of sliding scale fee slots are available to clients who are unable to use insurance or afford full fees for services.
Fees and co-pays are due at the time of service, unless a prior agreement is arranged. Payments may be made in cash, check, debit or credit card, FSA, or through electronic payment methods such as PayPal or Square.
