I offer online consultation and online therapy for children and teens ages 10-18 in the state of Maryland. With few exceptions, all sessions must include video.
My specialties include Mood Disorders, ADHD, school problems, and Parent-child conflict. 
Sessions typically last 50 minutes unless we arrange otherwise. 
For the best possible outcomes, all new clients are expected to commit to weekly therapy for the first 6-8 weeks. I do not offer biweekly or monthly therapy for new clients.
Mental health services are an investment in your family's future. Here is a break down of my fees:
Initial consultation (15 minutes via phone or video): Free
Intake session (90 minutes): $315
All follow up sessions (50 minutes): $180
No show fees A no show is an unplanned absence from our session, a cancellation with fewer than 48 hours notice, or arriving more than 15 minutes late to a session without prior notice. "No shows" are subject to paying their full fee for the session scheduled.
Clients are expected to keep a credit card on file, and payment is due at the end of each session.
Slow Down Psychology is not paneled with any insurance companies. Upon request, you may be given a Superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. It is the client's responsibility to verify out of network benefits, and reimbursement is not guaranteed.
