Clients are initially scheduled weekly or every other week. After approximately 6-12 sessions, we will review your progress together and discuss whether you’d like to continue at this pace. Most clients work at least 6-9 months on their goals.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your effective Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill with your provider. Your estimate will be discussed with you and updated based on your needs.
