Your intake appointment will give us an opportunity to make a provisional diagnosis, assess your needs, and orient you to the clinical process. It will also give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have. Intakes are scheduled for 75 minutes, and may last longer. Subsequent sessions last approximately 45-53 minutes.
Some people have concerns regarding the nature of the questions in the intake. We will never require you to answer a question that you are not ready to answer. Assessment is an ongoing clinical process. Some people are not prepared to disclose their most intimate issues until they feel safe; and though we will encourage your growth, we will encourage it at a rate that is appropriate for you.
We are "in network" with many insurance companies. If we are not "in-network" with your insurance company, we will provide the paperwork so that you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. Some insurance companies might not reimburse remote services such as telephone or video therapy. We encourage you to check with your insurance company to determine what your benefits are. Most insurance companies provide you with a card that has an 800 number on the back of it so you can call customer service.
Our rates are approximately $140 per hour. We may discuss a sliding scale depending on availability. Clinical consultation fees vary, and may be pro bono. Legal consultation fees and collection fees will be assessed if necessary Ultimately, you are responsible for any fees you incur.
Comprehensive DBT includes therapy, crisis intervention/coaching, and DBT Skills Training. If you have a personality disorder, we may require that you participate in Comprehensive DBT. Attendance is mandatory per Comprehensive DBT Guidelines. The Class takes approximately a year to complete (and graduate)
KTGreene is a therapist with a diversified and experiential personal background that helps her easily relate to numerous people and their issues. She is known for a collaborative, yet direct style that incorporates an educational component into therapy, and she is particularly recognized for her nonjudgmental approach. She received her Masters in Social Work from Arizona State University, where she became familiar with Brief, Solution-Focused, and other forms of therapy. She then participated in an intensive two-year residency, where she was formally trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). While learning DBT, she developed a penchant and love for working with personality disordered persons, persons in crisis, and persons who have multiple and complex diagnoses. She has gained experience and appreciation for working with many unique individuals, and works hard to build trust in a safe, nonjudgmental environment. She is comfortable discussing “taboo” topics including suicide, sexual issues, self-harming, self-esteem/shame issues, and Impulsive/Compulsive/Extreme/Avoidant Behaviors, and is able to help people quickly feel comfortable with these types of disclosures. She has built a working understanding of Neuroscience to enhance clinical results, and has also earned a Doctorate in Behavioral Health, which focuses on a "whole person" approach. Currently involved in client advocating and affecting change in the public mental health system, she is available telephonically and via Zoom.
