What can I expect during my first session?
During your first session we will go through your paperwork that you completed and I will ask follow up questions to get to know you better. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and supported during this session and all future sessions.
What will my future sessions look like?
Your future sessions will be focused on the direction and goals that you want to accomplish. Some days we just need to vent and some days we want to action plan. I will meet you where you are at and will take your lead. This is your journey and I am here to support you.
Can I bring my baby?
You can absolutely bring your baby provided they are not yet mobile. As long as your little one can be held by you or within arms reach at all times, I encourage you to bring them if you wish.
What if I need to feed my baby during the session?
I will follow your lead and comfort level. As long as you are comfortable feeding your baby during therapy, I am completely supportive of this.
How much do sessions cost and do you accept insurance?
For self pay clients, intake sessions are $150 and all subsequent sessions are $120 for 45-50 minute sessions.
Shannon: I currently accept Aetna, Oscar Health, Oxford, United and self pay clients. If I do not accept your insurance, superbills will be provided to you on a monthly basis which can often be submitted to your insurance provider for partial or full reimbursement.
Please contact your insurance carrier for specifics on Out of Network benefits.
Will I ever feel like myself again?
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are very common and are highly treatable. 1 in 7 women will experience depression or anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum. Treatment is individualized and can include any combination of therapy, medication, and social support groups. With help you will feel like yourself again!
