Scheduling

I am available for appointments Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings,  my office is in the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs area, near Perimeter Mall. It is located on 5881 Glenridge Dr. Suite #240, Atlanta, Ga 30328. My appointment times; Mon, Tues,  9am-4pm, Thur. 1pm-7pm and Saturday appointments are available from 9am-12pm.  You may call 770-595-4510 or contact me by email, hannah@hhe-therapy.com.  Please do not include personally sensitive material in emails as privacy is not guaranteed.

What to Expect Taking the first step in any endeavor can be difficult. By taking the time to view my website and others you have already done that. Good for you. Even more daunting can be the act of reaching out, accepting support in this way. To set up an appointment or make an inquiry you may leave me a message on my voicemail. I generally return calls the same day during the week. It takes longer on weekends. The same applies to email messages, understand email confidentiality cannot be guaranteed so please do not leave sensitive details. We can discuss these by phone. I do have intake forms that will need to be completed prior to our first meeting. These usually take 15 minutes to complete. You may print, complete and bring them to your first appointment or I can make them available to you to complete in the waiting room, please arrive early to allow time for this step. Our first meeting will likely last between 50 and 60 minutes. I will explain thoroughly how therapy with me works, answer any questions you may have, and go over the forms you completed. You may share some of why you are seeking therapy and we will discuss what you would like to achieve in your therapy. Finally, we will decide whether we are a good fit, and if not I will provide you with other resources and/or referrals that will better meet your needs. Either way you will not leave empty handed. I look forward to hearing from you.

Fees My fee for a 50 minute individual appointment is $120.00.  Couple and family sessions are 140.00.  I often encourage couples and families to schedule an additional 20 minutes or a 70 minute session. That fee is $160.00.  I do offer a few spaces on a sliding scale for a limited amount of time. We can discuss your financial needs at your first appointment. Please expect to pay the full amount for your initial appointment.

Insurance A word about insurance. I do not maintain contractual agreements with insurance companies and so am not an “in network” provider and do not bill insurance companies directly. However, your health insurance may also include out-of-network benefits. This means you can see any therapist you like, pay out of pocket for the service and then your insurance company agrees to partially or completely reimburse you once your deductible has been met. I am happy to provide you with a worksheet to use when you call your insurance provider to find out about “out-of-network” benefits. I will also provide you with an appropriate receipt/invoice you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
