Yes. I do have weekend and evening hours
Do you do virtual appointments? (We have a 2 year old and I am the primary childcare (stay at home)
Yes. I do virtual with some stipulations. You must use a laptop or desktop computer to connect. If the clients use their cellphone/smartphone, then I cannot see expressions and body language of both partners. So phones are not permissible. Also, if you have children, then you must not be distracted by them. If you can hire a baby sitter to assist while we are in session, that is going to be necessary. Unless, you can sit them in front of a kids movie to watch while we conduct our session.
I do work with couples who bring their children to therapy. You can bring toys and food/drink to keep them busy. Couples therapy works better and more efficient in-person.
Do you take Insurance benefits?
This Agency is willing to work with all Insurance agencies, however Insurance only pays for "medical necessity." You will need to contact your Insurance provider and inquire if they will pay for marriage counseling. Your Insurance company wants to work with you and they have instructed our agency to have their client call them to determine what benefits are offered and if it requires "Prior Authorization".
If your Insurance company is willing to work with this Provider then we are willing to discuss with them how we can offer services to you while our Agency remains fair and just and not show favoritism by offering reduced rates to some clients. The agencies who inspect this agency mandate that we must remain fair and equal with our prices. If you use your Out of Network Benefits, our agency files the claims at no additional charge with your Insurance company. You will track the reimbursement to you with your Insurance agent.
Do you offer a complimentary or reduced rate consultation?
I offer for you to come to visit with me in my office for a FREE 35 minute session. I will come to your residence to conduct therapy within a 7 mile radius.
How can therapy help me?
A number of benefits are available from participating in psychotherapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks.
