Alan Strachan, Ph.DLength of Sessions

Individual therapy sessions are based on a 50-minute hour.  When working with couples, I have found that it is helpful to schedule longer sessions, generally 75 minutes, and sometimes longer.

Frequency of Sessions

The frequency of sessions depends upon what you need and what you can afford. One session per week is the average.

Insurance Coverage

If you have insurance coverage for psychotherapy, I will do whatever paperwork is necessary for you to file your claim.

Please note that I am not on any PPO or Managed Care panels.  I can provide you with a statement that you can submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network reimbursement.

Fees

I have a sliding scale, ranging from $100–$195. We can discuss your salary and financial resources and set your fee accordingly.

Location

I have a home office in Aptos, CA (near Santa Cruz) and will give you directions when we speak by phone.
