We are able to provide treatment in unconventional ways: online being one of them. Can't get to me? No problem. If you have a computer, tablet, iPad or smart phone, I'll get to you. Telehealth is an incredible tool to help many receive the treatment they desire. It's a very convenient alternative to the traditional face-to-face treatment. Consultations are always free so it’s worth just giving it a shot.
For those of you looking to be reimbursed for your sessions, I would need to be licensed in your State. I am licensed in CA, FL, ID, NV, MT, UT, WV, & VA. I do not bill insurance myself - in fact, I do not accept insurance. However, if you want to file a claim you can do so with the Superbill I provide you for our sessions. Most insurances do honor a small percentage for out-of-network reimbursements. Please check with your provider.
Counseling sessions are good for people who do not plan to have insurance reimburse them and/or live in a state outside my license jurisdictions. Counseling sessions provide the freedom to use treatment how you'd like without the regulations and restrictions that each state and insurance company implements. This also helps the Provider use broader tools to better serve the Client.
I provide a free 30-minute consultation to all new clients. Once you book, I will send an email with documents I need filled out before we meet. This provides me some information about you and allows you to sign certain consents for our telehealth session.
The consultation gives me a brief explanation as to why you decided to seek treatment at this time in your life. More importantly, it allows you to evaluate me. It's a time for you to see if my modality of treatment aligns with your approach to life.
Make sure you're in a quiet and safe place when we meet so you can talk freely. Also double check to make sure your internet connection is optimal. You can use your smart phone, iPad, laptop or computer. You will receive an email reminder about 48 hours before our appointment time and you will get a link to our session about 10 minutes before we meet.
Please note: If you are a no-show to our scheduled consultation, you will forfeit the waived fee for any future appointments made.
If you have questions, please contact me.
I do all my consultations on Wednesdays. You can easily book your appointment below.
Of course for each person it's different, but in general an individual starting treatment will see me at the same time and day every week for at least the first three months. After that time, we reevaluate and assess if every-other week sessions will suffice. If someone comes in with extreme distress, twice weekly sessions might be more appropriate to start.
After the person feels they are more in control of their behaviors and have a better understanding of their situation/circumstances, and enough tools in their tool box, we can move to "maintenance" sessions (typically once a month) or end treatment all together.
Much of the skills used in treatment are from CBT, DBT, and my recommended tools. I do not follow any regimented curriculum. Tools are given based on stressors and need. Processing through pain, trauma, anxiety, fears and confusion are key to helping one discover themself and accept their reality.
There is no time limit with treatment; you just have to be willing to do the work. I will not put in more work than you for your life, but I'll be by your side pushing you, guiding you, and lending some professional advice while being empathetic to the things you have no control over.
