About Dr. Seekri

Hello and Welcome to my Practice!

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been practicing independently since 1997. My approach to psychotherapy is best described as eclectic. I utilize many schools of psychological thought to approach your specific difficulty in the most specialized and personal way. In our work together you can expect therapy to help alleviate symptoms of distress, teach new ways to cope, and allow for a new and deeper understanding of yourself.

Policies and Forms

I work as an Out-Of-Network Provider for all Insurance Companies. My Patients pay at the time of session and I provide an invoice for the patient to submit to their insurance company. Patients can submit this invoice and receive their reimbursement sent directly to them. I am not paneled to take Medicaid or Medicare.

The Intake session is 90 minutes. I offer psychotherapy sessions that are either 50 or 75 minutes in length. Individuals will choose session length after Intake and will be dependent on scope of presenting issues. Couples therapy will generally require 75 minute sessions.

Initial contact for an appointment is always made through leaving a voicemail. Voicemail will be the most preferred and expected communication with patients. Once a patient is part of my caseload, texting regarding appointment scheduling will be allowed. However, any clinical information or discussion outside of scheduling will be phone contact only. I generally do not email with patients.
