Frequently Asked Questions
Your Questions Answered
How do I schedule an appointment? What can I expect the first appointment?
What is an LCPC?
Please contact me via phone or email to schedule an appointment. Your first appointment will be an intake appointment where we explore your history more fully, get to know each other, and decide together how best to structure our time together to meet your personal goals or provide referrals for outside services.
The strength of the relationship you have with your counselor is one of the key components to your success in counseling. I am more than happy to provide a free, time limited, phone consultation prior to scheduling.
What are your fees?
LCPC stands for licensed clinical professional counselor. In order to receive this license, I attended a nationally accredited graduate program where I received intensive supervised training while providing one-on-one and group counseling in a clinic setting. After graduating I was required to complete 1,000 supervised hours providing individual, family, and couple's counseling to receive my professional license, and an additional 3,000 hours to receive my clinical license. Licensed professional counselors have the most rigorous continuing education requirements as well as the highest hourly requirement for licensure (amongst non-medically licensed mental health professionals). I complete additional professional training and education each year to stay up to date on mental health issues, treatments, and modalities.
What is telehealth? How is telehealth related to COVID?
Telehealth uses a HIPAA compliant online platform for holding virtual sessions using video and audio over the internet. Telehealth can also be used when there are issues which complicate access (schedules, disability, illness, transportation, distance). I am following CDC and American Psychiatric association guidelines as they relate to COVID-19, and in periods of increased risk telehealth offers a way to continue counseling without being seen in person.
Is your office accessible?
We are located at 410 S Orchard Street, Suite 124. The office is on the second floor, though accessible office space is available for those in need of accommodations. Telehealth is also available to clients who may benefit from being seen outside of the office. We have unisex restrooms and disabled parking spaces are available.
