How can counseling help me?
Counseling can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhance coping strategies for many issues. Therapists can offer a fresh, outside perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from counseling depend on how much you participate in your treatment put into practice what you learn.
Do you accept insurance?
No. I only accept credit cards, debit cards, and other forms of payment through PayPal. Please read the section about payment and fees.
Does what we discuss remain confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and therapist. I am legally and ethically bound to take every precaution to protect your privacy and confidentiality. There are some limits to confidentiality so please read and understand these before beginning with online counseling. I know how important your privacy is and every attempt has been made to provide a safe and secure atmosphere here.
What are the online requirements for participating in counseling services through eSession Online Counseling?
There are only a few things you need before getting started: ALL FREE!
What if there is a technology failure in the middle of our appointment?
We all know how frustrating technology can be at times! In the event that there would be a technology failure in the middle of a session, I will make every attempt to recontact you. If, for some reason, we would be unable to finish our session we would reschedule another appointment at no charge (unless the majority of the session was completed).
Can I reschedule an appointment?
Absolutely! We all have things come up and there may be times when I may need to reschedule. If you need to cancel a session or reschedule you will need to contact me as soon as possible.
Why do I have to provide so much personal information on the Assessment Questionnaire?
The assessment questionnaire is essentially important for a number of reasons. This allows me to review your information and determine if this would be a good fit for you. The issues you are seeking help for may go beyond what eSession Online Counseling can provide so it's important to have all the information before beginning. The information also helps me to verify that you are a real person! Unfortunately, there are many individuals on the web who are dishonest about their identity. I need to trust you as much as you need to trust me. In the same respect, I have provided my credentials for your own peace of mind.
