FAQ


How long and how many times a week is a typical session?
A typical session is 50 minutes long and once a week, however sessions can occur more or less frequently depending on the clients needs and schedule.


How long will I be in counseling?
In some cases one session is enough to address a certain philosophical issue.  While one session may be enough to solve one particular issue there are other issues that may take significantly longer to resolve.  Also, some clients like to address many issues in multiple sessions and like to maintain a set weekly schedule.  The length of the counseling varies greatly amongst different clients.


Do I need to take medications?
As a philosopher and not a medical doctor I do not prescribe any medications and suggest that all my clients follow the instructions given them by their current medical professional.


How much are your fees and do you take insurance?
My fees can be seen on the services page and I do not accept any forms of health insurance at this time, however some health insurance providers offer reimbursement for alternative treatments.
