What to Expect/More Information
You may schedule an appointment here, or call (346) 901-7309 for a free phone consultation.
Therapy appointments are offered both online and in person. Many people prefer the flexibility and convenience of meeting from their home, while others prefer the privacy and ability to connect at in-person appointments. Please let us know at the time of scheduling which option works best for you. We are located close to 59, near SW Houston/Sugar Land.
After scheduling an appointment, you’ll be sent a link to log into our secure client portal. From here, you can fill out intake paperwork, access documents, schedule appointments, receive appointment reminders, and log into online appointments.
During Your First Appointment
Our first session will include a brief review of the documents sent to you on the portal, making sure to address any questions you might have. This is also a time to discuss your goals for therapy, look at ways we might work together to reach those goals, and make to sure you feel comfortable and that we are a good fit to work together.
My rates are $110/session. A sliding scale discount is available based on need and circumstances.
I am not currently paneled with any insurance providers. As an out of network provider, and I am not able to file claims on behalf of clients. All fees must be paid in full at the time of your appointment. I am able to provide a Superbill that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I am not able to guarantee that your insurance company will reimburse you. You may also choose to use a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account to pay for services.
Working with an LPC-Associate
Licensed Professional Counselor-Associates are highly trained post-graduate counselors. They have completed two years of a rigorous master’s degree program, including 700 hours of counseling experience, including training on techniques, assessments, and diagnostic skills before graduation as well as completed the national licensing exam, which allows them to receive an Associate license and enter into the clinical supervision period. During this period, they complete an additional 3000 hours of counseling work (much like a doctor going through residency) before receiving their unsupervised LPC license. They are supervised by a Licensed Professional Counselor supervisor who has a minimum of five-years post license experience and has taken another rigorous 40-hour course in order to be certified to supervise. In seeing an LPC-Associate, you receive the benefit of not just your clinician’s knowledge, experience, and expertise, but also of their supervisors as well.
I am currently supervised by Mark Cagle, LPC-S and am within 400 hours of reaching full licensure.
Animal Assisted Therapy
Our therapy cat, Zen, is available upon request. Sometimes, it’s easier to break the ice with a pet in the room. Zen is generally outgoing and affectionate, and many times, he will jump up on the sofa and sit next to clients during sessions. Having him near tends to help discuss difficult or emotional content. It is not necessary that he join us when we meet however. If you have allergies to cats, please let me know. The office is cleaned after he has visited, but allergens may still be present.
