I participate in care plans through Employee Assistance Programs and major health insurance companies that are intended to improve counselor / client relationships and optimize the quality of care that I provide.
These plans offer tools and resources to help clients to better self-manage a behavioral health condition and/or help reduce risk for developing the condition.
I also participate in programs that provide tools that enable counselors and clients to assess and track progress related to their mental health.
Check with your insurance company or Employee Assistance Program (EAP) on your current benefits for mental health and/or substance abuse counseling and their recommended procedure to get your first appointment. Bring me your authorization number, if you get one, along with your insurance card and identification.
If you are a minor please bring a parent to the first session.
I will give you an appointment that is saved especially for you. Please give me a one-day notice if you can’t make your appointment so that someone else can use your time.
Other Payment Information
Payment also accepted by cash, debit card and most major credit cards.
About Your First Visit
It is normal to get the “jitters” about attending your first time. I get it—you don’t know me and you’re nervous about telling me about yourself! My furniture is comfortable and I don’t pressure you. I am not a physician so you get the bonus of keeping your modesty and I don’t prescribe drugs.
Your first session is usually about 90 minutes long because we will do some paperwork in the office and get acquainted. The following sessions are usually 45 -60 minutes. We will talk about your reason for seeing me and explore what you expect to get from counseling. EAP’s offer just enough time for an assessment, brief solution-focused approach to counseling and possibly referrals to continue with your major health policy.
