Are you accepting new clients? Yes! I am accepting new clients right now. How much time will I need to be in counseling? Everyone is different. There is not a set amount of time for counseling. I will work at your pace. How long can I see you for counseling? There is no time limit here. You are able to see your counselor as long as you and your counselor agree you are getting something out of the work you are doing together. How much time do I need to cancel an appointment? All appointments need to be canceled at least 24 hours before your session to avoid full charge for the canceled session. Do you tell other people what we talk about? By law, everything discussed in session remains between you and I. However, there are a few exceptions such as expressing danger to harm yourself or another person and/or abuse of a child or elderly person. In those cases, your counselor is required by law to help in the best way they can which means getting some outside support for you.
Do you appear in court to speak on a family's behalf? In order to maintain a positive and healthy therapeutic relationship with my clients and family members, I do not provide assessments, court testimony, or assist in determining appropriate child-custody arrangements. Do you prescribe medication? Since I am not a medical doctor, I do not prescribe medication or educate you on how to take your medication. I can help you develop ways to remember to take your medication in order to keep you feeling well. Can I use my insurance? Currently, I am not taking insurance; however, you can check with your insurance company about your out of network benefits and if you will be reimbursed for therapy sessions that you pay for out of pocket. Also, you can ask your insurance company (or HR representative at work) if you can use your flex spending account or health savings account to pay for sessions.
