Fees and FAQs

I’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that I have received. It’s normal and encouraged for clients to ask many questions when choosing to work with a Licensed Professional Counselor. Here are some answers to the questions I receive the most. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please get in touch!

How do I get started?

Typically I provide an initial consult to potential clients to answer any questions you may have and further discuss the process.  This way we can get to know each other a bit more and see if I may be the right fit for your needs!  You can either email me at laurenhefflerlpc@gmail.com or give me a call at 484-393-1755 to get started.

What is your rate, and do you accept insurance?

My rate is $120/53 minute session.  I am out of network with insurance, but can provide you with a "superbill" for potential insurance reimbursement.  You can talk with your insurance beforehand and provide them with the code 90837-95 to reflect the service I would be providing you (50 minute Telehealth session).  I accept cash, check, credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, and payments from a Health Savings Account (HSA).

How often do I come for therapy?

It depends!  I typically recommend starting sessions weekly or once every other week.  This is to develop trust and rapport, and to provide consistency in implementing new skills.  Therapy is a collaboration and we will routinely discuss your progress and your levels of comfort with scaling back over time.  I am open to providing therapy on a monthly or as-needed basis if we agree that this is appropriate for you.

How long does each therapy session take?

Sessions are 53 minutes in length and occur virtually (Google Meet).

How do I see results soonest?

My clients who have had most success in therapy are open and honest in sessions (not just with me, but with themselves)!  This allows you to gain better insight into the challenges you may be experiencing so that we can introduce the most appropriate techniques to meet your needs.  Typically, therapy is around 12 sessions, though oftentimes clients choose to continue coming longer term because it feels "right" and is a safe place to continue reflecting on various life challenges as they arise.
