FAQ about therapy for anger issues in Maryland and DC

How will I know it’s working?

While you’ll likely feel some changes within a few sessions, long-lasting progress may take weeks, months, or even years. This is because therapy not only treats symptoms, but it also addresses root causes.

I will not only help you learn new ways to manage your anger, but I will also help you explore why it’s happening in the first place, which often takes time. I use a type of therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS), an evidence-based method for working with anger, anxiety, and other emotions and issues.

Eventually, addressing the experiences and healing the trauma that laid the foundation for your anger will allow you to fully let go of the habits and patterns that are holding you back. Then you can start to make big changes that you previously though were impossible.

How often should I do therapy and for how long?

You always control the frequency and number of sessions. Typically, I recommend that we meet weekly or bi-weekly, especially in the beginning. It takes commitment and consistency to build trust and rapport.

But it’s ultimately your call. If you want to move to monthly at some point, that’s up to you.

How long we work together is up to you as well. I might recommend continuing or ending therapy based on your progress and goals. But you decide when you don’t need more sessions.

Some of my clients work with me for a few months as they navigate a difficult situation, while others have seen me as a helpful guide for years. Together, we will talk about what is most supportive to your ongoing growth and well-being.

How much does it cost?

My fee for a therapy session is $170 and will likely be reimbursed under most insurance plans. I accept credit card/debit card and HSA/FSA payments at the time of service.

I am considered “out-of-network” for all major insurance companies including Aetna, BlueCross, Cigna, Carefirst, and UHC. That means you pay the full fee at the time of service and can then choose to submit to your insurance for reimbursement through your out-of-network benefits.

The majority of clients have some out-of-network benefits, and benefits often cover 50 percent or more of my fee. You should check with your insurance to confirm.

I provide a Statement for Reimbursement (“superbill”) through a secure online portal to submit to your insurance company if you choose to seek reimbursement.
