FAQs for Jonathan
How does online psychotherapy and coaching work?
After contacting me via phone, email, or using the form on the Contact page, we will find a time for a free consultation to determine what service would be the best fit for you. Once we decide which service will best meet your needs, we will have our first session either in-person or online using the HIPAA compliant telemedicine videoconferencing program VSEE.
Psychotherapy services are currently only being offered to clients in Pennsylvania and California due to licensing regulations, while coaching services are offered to clients worldwide.
For online services, how do I get VSEE?
I will send new clients an easy link to follow that will allow them to install the VSEE program on their smartphone or computer at no charge. It’s a relatively simple setup, but I am happy to walk anyone through the process.
What are your fees?
My current full fee varies based on the service I am providing. I am happy to discuss this with you when determining the best service and fee based on your needs.
Do you take insurance?
Many PPO insurance policies include out-of-network benefits through which you can submit my psychotherapy services for partial or full reimbursement. I provide “super bills” that list all paid sessions to assist clients in seeking insurance reimbursement for my services. Coaching sessions are not considered a form of therapy, so are not covered by insurance benefits.
How do you receive payment for online services?
After a session you will receive an invoice via Square to your email. Simply follow the instructions and provide a secure credit card payment for the service provided.
How often are sessions?
Typically we begin meeting on a weekly basis in order to establish a good foundation for the work we are setting out to do. However, this can be modified based on individual need or availability. Sessions are typically 50 minutes, with extended sessions or shortened sessions offered based on need and type of service.
How many weeks do we meet?
All my work is entirely individualized based on meeting the goals of my clients. Collaboratively we will work together to determine the length of our work based on your personal needs.
