What can I expect at the first appointment?
Our first session will be spent getting to know one another. I want you to have the best fit for your needs so I will be making an assessment about what will help you the most and I encourage you to approach our first time together similarly. It is an interview of sorts to see if we are a good match to work together. It is an opportunity for me to understand more about you, as well as, give you the opportunity to ask me questions you may have.
What kinds of concerns do you help people with?
What type of counseling do you do?
I provide individual and group counseling for adults (18 and older). I do not do marital or family counseling but can give you good referral options if in the course of our working together we determine that it would be beneficial. I utilize primarily cognitive behavioral therapy (specifically exposure response prevention for treatment for OCD) and focus largely on the here and now.
Do you prescribe medication?
I do not prescribe medication. I am a licensed psychologist which means that I have attended graduate school, have a doctorate in psychology (PhD), and passed state and national exams to be licensed to provide psychological services in the state of Texas. A psychiatrist on the other hand does prescribe medication. A psychiatrist attends medical school and will have an MD. Most often, if you need medication you will see both a psychologist for counseling and a psychiatrist for medication management.
How much do the sessions cost?
The initial one-hour appointment is $193 and follow-up 55-minute appointments are $167.
Do you take my insurance?
Regarding insurances I am an out-of-network provider. The fee for service is due at the beginning of each appointment. All potential clients should contact their insurance company to see if their particular policy reimburses at an out-of-network rate. Upon request we will provide you with all of the information you will need to submit your receipt to your insurance company should you choose to do so for reimbursement based on your individual insurance plan.
