Make an Appointment
Counseling at Waters Edge is NOT performed by a licensed mental health professional and services are not billed to insurance companies. I will be glad to provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Sliding scale rates are available on a case by case basis and are determined in person. Services can be paid for by check, cash, Visa/Mastercard/Discover. Fees will be discussed more in-depth during the 15 minute phone consultation.
Initial appointments for individuals are 90 minutes. Intake forms must be completed prior to arrival to allow more time for the session. Subsequent appointments are typically 55 minutes.
All appointments for couples are 90 minutes in length. There may be times when a decision is made to see each spouse individually. This will be discussed and agreed upon by all parties before scheduling.
Virtual appointments are currently only available after one in person visit has been attended. After the initial visit, they are 45 minutes in length.
Successful therapy works best when the therapist and client work together with an attitude of trust and motivation. Openness about oneself and relationships is paramount to the counseling process. There may be situations in which there is not proper “fit” between the client and therapist, or perhaps progress is not being made. Referral to another counselor may be what is best for the client. The client has the right to terminate services at any time.
