How do I schedule an appointment?
Call me at 817-932-3158 to schedule an appointment. I offer daytime and evening appointments, Monday through Friday.
Do you accept insurance?
I currently accept the following insurance plans and bill them directly for you:
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, PPO
Cook’s Children’s Medicaid
If you need to use a different insurance plan, please contact your insurance carrier to see if I may be considered an Out-Of-Network provider on their plan. I do not bill Out-Of-Network insurance plans, but will provide you with a detailed receipt so you may file the session with your insurance provider.
What do I need for the first session?
Ideally, please bring the appropriate, completed intake form to our first session (or otherwise please arrange to arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete intake paperwork at my office). If you are seeking therapy for a child, the first session will be just for you and your partner/spouse so that we can discuss the needs and background of your child.
Is counseling confidential?
When is counseling completed?
We will work together to determine your therapeutic needs and goals. As you find yourself meeting your goals and feeling more secure, we can then assess how often you might want to meet. I find that some adults need only 3-5 sessions, yet most seem to feel their goals are best met by 10-12 individual sessions. I also meet with some adults for individual sessions for longer periods of time depending upon their psychological and emotional needs or current stressors.
