Office-Based Counseling/Consulting

Individuals and families local to the west Georgia area can meet with me in one of my two offices.  My Paulding/West Cobb office is just off Hwy 120, near 278. My West Georgia office is just off of the historic downtown square of Carrollton.

Phone-Based Counseling/Consulting

Schedules are busy and not everyone lives nearby, so I make it a point to be accessible.  Some people can really benefit from counseling over the phone.  If this is something you’d like to try, give me a call, and let’s talk about it!  Due to state licensure laws, phone counseling may not be available to individuals in some states other than Georgia.

Videoconferencing

Videoconferencing is really great way to receive counseling from a distance and still get the personal, face-to-face experience.  It works very well for individuals with busy schedules and is very easy to do.  You can even have a counseling session on your smartphone during your lunch break in your car.  Don’t let time and an overwhelming life stop you from getting help when you need it!  Due to state licensure laws, videoconferencing may not be available to individuals in some states other than Georgia.

RATES FOR SERVICES

It is my policy to make counseling services affordable to everyone in some form, and that means we may have to get creative. Perhaps we’ll adjust session frequency or length.*

My rates are as follows:

OFFICE-BASED

$125 – 1 hour session (50 minutes*)

*The final 10 minutes of your session is reserved for my note-taking, follow-up, and prep for your next session.

PHONE/VIDEO CONSULTING/COUNSELING

$60 – 30 minutes

Prior to all initial appointments, ONLINE REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETED TO FINALIZE YOUR APPOINTMENT. IF ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF YOUR APPOINTMENT, IT WILL BE CANCELLED AND YOU WILL NEED TO RESCHEDULE. A link will be emailed to you that will take you through this simple process. You need to read all of the documents completely.

My billing platform will keep this credit card on file for future sessions, but you will be able to delete it at anytime via your online access to the client portal. You can change credit cards at any time, as well. If you prefer to pay with a check, you can mail payment to the address where you will be seen for your appointment.

INSURANCE:

I am not currently filing insurance for any carriers.  I have been forced to stop providing this service because I have had major difficulty with insurance carriers refusing to follow through with my contract as a network provider.  Claims are denied multiple times, and often aren’t paid for months following a date of service.  If you have health insurance, I can provide you with the forms necessary to send to your insurance company for reimbursement.  I encourage you to contact your carrier with the following CPT procedure codes to ask if you will be reimbursed  (Video-conferencing and phone counseling are not covered by insurance.)
