Most clients schedule sessions for a “clinical hour,” which is 50 minutes, but you can also choose to meet for 80 or 100 minutes. Note: If you are planning to submit for OON reimbursement from your insurance, they will only cover the first 50 minutes of extended sessions.
I strongly encourage my clients to commit to scheduling weekly sessions for at least the first few sessions in order for us to get to know each other, build trust, and get some momentum. After that, we can discuss if you would prefer to continue meeting weekly or biweekly. I expect clients to attend either weekly or biweekly for the duration of treatment or until we have mutually agreed to step down to a maintenance schedule.
