Frequently Asked Questions

How long does therapy take?

Some people worry that starting therapy means they will need to go for the rest of their lives. Thankfully, this is not the case for most people. I always aim to get someone back to their life quickly.  It is not uncommon to see some improvement in just a few sessions, and then decrease the frequency of sessions.

Do you take insurance?

I do not take insurance. Some insurance plans may cover "out of network" providers.  If this applies to you, I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit for reimbursement.

Do you offer evening or weekend appointments?

Absolutely!  I understand that people may work or have other life commitments. Therapy should fit with your life, not be another stressor.  I am able to offer evening and weekend appointments to best fit your schedule.  When you contact me we can discuss times.

How much do sessions cost?

I think of therapy as an investment in yourself. I offer free 15 minute consultations at which point I am happy to discuss the session cost and determine if we will be a good fit. At this time I do not have any sliding scale slots, but am happy to refer you to lower-cost providers.

Are you currently accepting new clients?

Yes! I look forward to meeting you.  Contact me to get started using the form on my homepage or by emailing nicolehayesphd@gmail.com.
