Free Initial Phone Consultation: I believe that your success in counseling starts with finding a counselor that is the right match for you, one you feel comfortable with and who you can trust. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation prior to scheduling a first session to determine if it is likely that we will be a good match. In the event that it doesn’t seem we will be well-suited to work together, I will provide appropriate referrals when available.
Sliding scale: In an effort to make therapy available to those with limited means or financial difficulties, I offer a sliding scale based on financial need. Visit Open Path Collective online or contact me for more details.
Using Your Insurance Benefits
I currently accept Lyra Health and BCBSTX PPO plans. If you don’t have one of these plans, you may qualify for out-of-network mental health benefits. I will provide you with a bill at the end of each session that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Your insurance may cover all or part of the fee. To find out what services your individual plan covers, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask if your insurance covers an out-of-network provider for mental health services. Generally, if you have an HMO plan, you will have to use an in-network provider; and if you have a PPO plan, you can choose any counselor. I would be considered an out-of-network provider for PPO plans. Please let me know if you need help figuring out what your insurance covers. Call or email me to schedule a phone consultation so we can discuss how I can help.
Methods of Payment
Payment will be required at the end of each session. I accept credit and debit cards, checks, cash, and HSA cards.
