What can I expect at our first counseling session?
After speaking on the phone and we decide to go forward, I will email you a link to my online client portal where you’ll digitally sign the requisite intake documents and a personal history form. I encourage you to be as thorough and detailed as you’d like. I will read everything before our first session so we can get right to work. You’ll have the opportunity to ask me any questions and get a feel for how I will be working with you.
Do you bill insurance?
I do bill some insurances directly and have limited appointment slots for folks with insurance. As a courtesy, I can send a bill to your insurance company at the end of the month if your insurance accepts out of network providers (usually called PPO).
Do you accept debit or credit cards?
Yes! I can also process payments from Medical Savings Accounts.
Do you work with kids?
I do not, yet I’d be happy to provide referrals for kids under 18.
Do you do EMDR?
Yes! EMDR is amazing. Please ask me to assess if this treatment modality is right for you.
Do you prescribe medication?
No. I do know a lot about medicine for depression, anxiety, mood regulation, detox, and more. I consult with and refer to many local psychiatrists and doctors.
