Cindy Gullo, LCPC - Therapist & Counselor

Process and Fees

Step One: Initial Consultation

Complete the Consultation Form to request a 15-minute consultation. I will contact you via email within 1-2 business days to schedule the consult. During the video consultation, we will briefly discuss why you seek counseling, availability, fees, and office policies. We will schedule your first appointment if we both agree we’re a good fit.

Step Two: Questionnaires

You will receive a link to access intake paperwork via text or email (your preference) within one business day following our consultation.

Step Three: Initial Appointment

On the day of your appointment, you can arrive on time. I will bring you into my office and ask you to tell me again what brought you into counseling. I know I asked you the question once, and you completed the questionnaire - it is the jumping-off point to getting to know you. Your comfort is my priority; the second is reviewing consent, policies, procedures, and how the therapy process works. My goal for you is to walk out feeling comfortable and hopeful.

Step Four: Individual Session

We meet weekly for at least the first month, ideally the first two months. Setting a firm foundation and building strong rapport is crucial in the process. We will revisit goals and measure therapy outcomes. It is important to remain consistent with attendance as this is a factor in successful therapeutic outcomes.

Step Five: Discharge

As the results improve, we space out sessions until you’re ready to move to the maintenance phase of therapy or terminate. Many clients meet every 4-6 weeks for a year or more as self-care.

Teen Clients

Many teens and college students bring themselves to the session so that we can schedule monthly or quarterly consultations with parents. If your teen is over 18, we will need their prior approval to talk with you.

Session Length

Most sessions are 45-50 minutes long every week. We meet weekly for the first month, then discuss bimonthly, if needed.

During your initial phone consultation, we’ll discuss a time for our weekly appointments - that way, you know your time is yours, and it’s easier for you to remember for planning purposes.

If you cannot attend your appointment, please cancel with at least 48 hours' notice to avoid being charged the full session fee. In some cases, I will suggest telehealth as an alternative if it is a viable option. Monday appointments canceled after Thursday at 5:00 PM are considered late cancellations.

Payment

Payment is due at the start of every session.

I accept credit card and HSA payments through Intake Q's secure online system. Your card is charged one hour before your scheduled appointment time.

My fee is $175 for a 50-minute session.

On average, clients who are a great fit take 25 -35 weekly/bimonthly sessions before they switch to the maintenance phase (every other week, 1x/month, or 1x/quarter) or discharge from therapy (graduate from treatment).

Cancellations require at least 48 hours to avoid financial responsibility for the missed appointment.
