and your treatment. Select your counselor and other healthcare providers with extreme care.
Before You Start: It's good to know what to expect! Many people do not know what to expect when they enter a counselors office. Similar to a medical doctor's office, everything discussed during counseling is confidential and protected by The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Confidentiality will be broken only as directed by you or as required by the law.
I do not attempt use any single, pure approach (i.e. straight psychoanalytic therapy, etc.), nor do most mental health professionals. Like most counselors, I use more of an eclectic approach drawing on a variety of counseling techniques depending on what the situation requires. My primary goal is to help you increase your level of self awareness and mindfulness by helping you identify faulty thinking and behavior patterns, learn new ones, and together find the new living skills, thought patterns, and path for life. Your therapy ultimately will last as long as you see fit.
Payment is due at the time of service. In the event you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, you must notify this office 24 hours in advance of your appointment time to avoid the no-show fee for that session, which is the full rate of a regular counseling session. Late cancellations (defined as cancellations during the final 24 hours before a scheduled appointment) are a reduced fee. I am dedicated to your counseling services and I expect you to be committed also.
