Answers to Common Questions About Relationships, Sex, and Couples Therapy
It’s not uncommon to feel discomfort when working with a new therapist for the first time or uncertain about starting a therapeutic agenda. I do want to reassure you and alleviate your anxiety so I put together a list of common questions about working with a relationship therapist.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments and want to hear from me directly, reach out to me and I can address each and every question you have. My goal is to make this process as comfortable as possible — so you can manage the conflicts in your life, make better choices, and cultivate satisfying relationships.
How soon can we meet?Once you fill out the contact form, pay for the session, and submit your New Client Forms, you’ll get a call from me by the end of the day. Or within 24 hours if it’s an after-hours or late night request.
Do I have to be an existing client to schedule an on-demand therapy session?No, you don’t have to be an existing client. With on-demand therapy, it’s typical for me to see a mix of existing and new clients — because this type of therapy is for anyone going through an emotional or relationship crisis. But if you are a new client, you’ll be required to submit the New Client Forms before the start of our session.
How much does Doug-on-Demand cost?Each session costs $225 for up to 90 minutes of time to work with me. I understand how on-demand access to a sex, couples, and relationship therapist can be a powerful and effective tool — especially during emotional crises. So I make it easy and clear to work with me by charging a flat, upfront rate. Once you fill out the contact form, you’ll be directed to the payment page, where all major credit cards are accepted.
Do you accept insurance for on-demand sessions?No, I don’t accept insurance for these sessions.
Will our on-demand therapy session be in-person?No, all sessions will take place virtually or when other arrangements have been made. When you fill out your basic information on the contact form, please make sure to include a valid phone number. This will be the number I’ll call to start our session together.
Do I have to live in Texas, Louisiana, or Colorado to use this service?Yes, I’m licensed to treat clients only in these states.
What if I’m experiencing a medical emergency?If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911 immediately.
“Ask questions. Be honest. Remove ego. Be curious. Level up. Doug is brilliant at helping shed layers of bullshit from my life; lies I’ve been telling myself for decades about [my decisions] or the conditioning I’ve experienced. Everything is a choice, and how can I actively live my life without being pushed around by things outside of my control?”
