  • What does it cost?
    Dr. Hayes will discuss a fee that takes into account several factors, including the session length and frequency, family members in therapy, and income. Initial evaluations need to be paid at the time of the visit. Regular sessions will be billed to you at the end of each month, and are due in the office by the 15th day of the next month.
  • Is it worth it?
    Patients are often curious as to when they, or their loved ones, may begin to notice gains from this investment. In making an informed decision about whether to proceed, it is important to compare the potential benefits and costs of therapy, relative to the hardship and opportunity costs in not working through your personal and family difficulties.
  • How long are the sessions?
    Appointments for psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, or parent guidance sessions are typically 45 minutes in length.
  • What about my responsibility?
    Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis is a commitment that you are making to yourself and your family, to foster your growth and development, and to build healthy relationships. In turn, Dr. Hayes is committed to providing you and/or your family members with regular times of a consistent duration. These regular appointments are called reserved times, for which you are financially responsible. If you should have reason to cancel the appointment, Dr. Hayes will make every effort to offer you an alternate time within that week. When she cannot substitute your time, your reserved time will still be payable because it will be regarded as a missed appointment. Payment for medication evaluation appointments will be due unless you have canceled the appointment no less than 48 hours in advance. In cases of inclement weather where travel is determined dangerous due to weather, missed appointments will not be billed.
  • Where do I begin?
    An initial consultation process is necessary to evaluate the particular needs of an individual, couple, or family. Dr. Hayes will discuss with you her recommendations.
  • What are your hours?
    Clinical hours are Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Dr. Hayes works by appointment only.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    As an out-of-network practitioner, Dr. Hayes does not participate on any insurance panels. You may be eligible for partial reimbursement of Dr. Hayes fee. It is advisable that you research your specific situation because health insurance policies vary.
  • How do I contact you?
    Dr. Hayes can be contacted at 734-673-0082 — confidential messages can be left on the answering machine, which she checks frequently throughout the day. You will be informed when Dr. Hayes is away, during which emergency coverage information will be provided to you.
  • How often will we meet?
    Appointments for child and adult psychotherapy, couple and family therapy, parent guidance, and psychoanalysis sessions are 45 minutes in length, unless otherwise specified.
