I understand that it is often scary to reach out for support. In the first few sessions I will ask you lots of questions so I can make sure that I am the right therapist for you. It will give you time to check me out to see if you are comfortable. That is the most critical thing with any therapist you work with; that you feel comfortable and safe.
I am currently taking new clients for daytime and evening time slots via Telehealth and Phone for local, interstate and international clients (except USA and Canada due to insurance limitations). I like to meet for 1-3 assessment sessions which are not therapy but are usually therapeutic. I collect a lot of information to be thorough and so I can ensure I am the right sort of therapist for you at this time. You are welcome to ask questions and I encourage you to voice any concerns you have at any time in the process. After the assessment process, if you feel comfortable we may decide to start therapy to address your needs.
My fee is currently $220 per 50 minute session for individual and couple work. After each session I email an invoice and once paid, I can arrange refund of any Medicare rebates into your account within 24 hours. My medicare rebate is $89.65 so you are out of pocket $130.35 per medicare session, to a maximum of ten per calendar year. If you are experiencing financial hardship please discuss this in your first session.
