Below are a few of the frequent questions I’ve received since opening my practice in Tyler; however, this is not an exhaustive list. If you have questions not addressed below, feel free to contact me.
Q: Is an initial consultation appointment necessary?
A: In order to build an effective working relationship, it is important that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. I encourage all potential clients to take advantage of this opportunity to meet me and see if you believe I would be a good fit to help you reach your goals. Initial consultation appointments are $50 and last 30-45 minutes.
Q: Do you take insurance?
A: At this time I do not file insurance for clients. If you will contact your insurance company and find out what information they need for you to be able to file a claim for reimbursement, I will be happy to customize a receipt that meets your needs.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: Cash, check and major credit cards.
Q: Why do I get voicemail when I call?
A: In an effort to protect privacy and keep costs down, I work independently. I do answer the phone if available, but otherwise, please leave a message and I will contact you as soon as possible. Typically, I will return your call the same day; however, if you leave a message at the end of the business day or after hours, I will contact you at my first available opportunity the following business day.
Q: Do you see clients in the evenings or on weekends?
A: The last appointment Monday through Friday is at 5:00, and I accept appointments on Saturday mornings as needed.
Q: Are you the only provider in your practice?
Q: Do you provide supervision?
A: Yes. As a Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology, I provide supervision services according to the rules of the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. Because I am not a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am unable to provide supervision for those seeking LPC licensure; however, there are several qualified LPC supervisors in the area.
