Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy with Scott or Laurie
At Thought Tonic, we work with adult clients — as individuals, couples, and in family groups — who identify themselves as ready for and willing to take a chance on a change in their lives. They want to free themselves from old patterns of thinking and behaving that may have once seemed to work, but are now keeping them from living their lives in the ways that they want.
We specialize in a creative, interactive, always-ready-to-change approach to therapy that helps our clients achieve their goals in transforming themselves, their relationships, and their lives. Among some of the more common topics with which we work are anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, sex, sexuality, and spirituality.
Complimentary Initial Consultations
Thinking about therapy? We offer free initial consultations over the telephone to give you the chance to get to know your therapist better, for your therapist to learn more about you, and to help you and your therapist decide how you want to proceed together, if you do.
Typically, we charge $110 for a 50-minute therapy session.
Payment by check or credit card is expected at the time of your therapy appointment; cash can be accepted by arrangement. Please note that there is currently a 2.75% service fee for the in-person use of credit cards, and a $3.50 service fee for remote transactions.
We do not process paperwork for insurance claims. If you wish, we will provide you with a receipt at the end of each session that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Be certain that you understand your coverage before you schedule your first regular appointment with us, and let us know if you are going to want a receipt. You can check your coverage by asking the following questions, among others, of your insurance company:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
At Thought Tonic, we value and honor diversity, and welcome the opportunity to work with clients regardless of race or ethnicity, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, physical or mental special needs or challenges, or other aspects of our uniqueness as human beings.
