Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I see someone who isn't covered by my insurance?
Do you have evening or weekend appointments?
I typically see clients until 7p. Unfortunately, I do not have weekend appointments at this time.
Can I call you during the week if there is a crisis?
Absolutely. If I am not available and you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 or your county crisis line (Johnson County, KS Crisis Line 913 831-2550).
What should I expect at my first session?
I will ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to complete initial paperwork and consent forms. During your first session, I will listen to your concerns and situation, learn what you want to achieve in counseling, share my approach to therapy and then we will get started!
There are so many therapists out there! How do I choose?
Research has shown that the relationship is the most important indicator of success in therapy. Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine from a website whether you will connect well with a therapist. There are a few things you can do to help you decide:
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, I take Visa, MasterCard, and Discover as well as cash and checks.
