How do I make an appointment?

If you’re ready to schedule a first session, or just have some questions you’d like answered, e-mail us at or call us at 612-326-6686. We will most often be able to get back to you within one business day.

What can I expect for my first session?

From your very first session you will begin to work on whatever it is that you would like to accomplish through therapy, even if at first that just means making sense of what has brought you in. During your first session you will also discuss some formalities of therapy, including arranging a fee for each session and deciding on a regular meeting time.

How long will I be in therapy?

The length of time you stay in therapy is always up to you.  There may be times when you are just looking for a sounding board and a few sessions will serve you well. Many people feel some relief shortly after starting therapy and start to see changes after a few months. If you are working on a particular, concrete issue, this may be as much time as you need. Other people stay in therapy for a year or several years as they work to cultivate deep, lasting change in their lives and relationships.

How much does therapy cost?

The fee for a 50-minute individual or couples session is $130.  Methods of payment include checks (payable to Water’s Edge Psychotherapy, LLC) or cash. The fee is due at the beginning of each session.

If this fee is a barrier to you receiving services, in some cases we are able to negotiate a reduced fee. We encourage you to speak with your therapist about this during your first session.

Do you accept insurance?

Please call to inquire about the possibility of using your insurance.   

What is your cancellation policy?

In this type of therapy, your weekly session time or times are reserved especially for you. Due to the nature of this type of therapy, we require 2 business-days notice for cancellations. With less than two business-days notice, we will do our best to offer you an alternative appointment time within that calendar week. Appointments cancelled with less than 2 business-day’s notice notice will be billed at your full fee.
