During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am conducting all my sessions online via the telemedicine service Doxy.me. In my experience, couples can have a very helpful and productive experience in online therapy, and insurance companies are currently reimbursing for telehealth sessions.
My sessions are virtual at doxy.me/drericstrauss, are one hour in length and cost $210.
You can download, read, and sign my “Information and Consent for Treatment” form before your first visit.
The initial appointment is for the couple, followed by an individual history-gathering session with each partner. These individual sessions are part of the couples treatment, and so anything said in them is open for discussion in the couples meetings. Next, a joint session is scheduled during which I will summarize my impressions of the situation and suggest a plan for working to improve the relationship.
I am a Blue Shield provider and can submit claims directly to BCBS. You are responsible for any co-pays or deductible amounts. All other couples can provide a credit card number and a charge can be made at the end of the session.
