Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

How much are initial evaluations?

Initial evaluations are $250 and last ninety minutes. During your intake I will gather information about you and your concerns and work collaboratively with you to come up with a plan to help assist you. I may also suggest testing to help clarify a diagnosis. 

What is the cost for individual therapy?

Fifty minute sessions are $200.

What are your appointment hours?

I maintain Epiphany Psychological as a part-time private practice and to provide hours that are able to accommodate most people's work schedules, I have availability during the evening and weekends.  Because therapy often involves more than just one appointment, like a typical visit to your physician, this enables you to not have to use sick leave benefits to accommodate your appointments. I also offer sessions from your home via an application like Skype that provides secure video conferencing.

Do you accept insurance?

I currently accept Triwest for Veterans seeking outpatient care in the community from the VA. I also accept Tricare for active duty service members. I also am a in-network provider for Cigna and MHN insurance plans. I am able to work with other insurance providers not currently listed. Please contact me to discuss available options. Some or all of your treatment may be covered.

Do you provide services for families, couples, or children?

No, this is not in my current scope of practice.

How long will I be in therapy?

This question is difficult to answer without knowing anything about your specific concerns. Some problems are well-suited to brief, short term therapy (10-15 sessions) while other problems are best treated with longer treatment. It is part of my treatment approach and philosophy to provide you with the most effective care possible in order to allow you to quickly see results and progress. After our initial appointment I am able to better discuss my impressions and provide you with an estimate for the duration needed for your particular concern(s).

What is a psychologist? What is the difference between a clinical social worker, licensed professional counselor, or marriage and family therapist?

A clinical psychologist has completed doctoral level academic training. During our training as psychologists, we also see patients under supervision for three years while we complete our graduate course work. This enables use to combine the academic knowledge we acquire through course work and practice applying this knowledge base to helping people.


After completion of our doctoral training, we spend an additional two years developing our clinical skills during internship and residency full-time.  Psychologist are the only mental health professionals that are able to provide psychological testing services.

A clinical social worker, professional counselor, or marriage and family therapist has typically earned a master's degree (two years of academic training) and a certain number of supervised clinical training hours to be licensed.
