Professional Counseling Services
Do your feel like the people you know and care about, really do not undertand you and what you are going through? Do you feel like an imposter in the office and a monter at home? Do you feel like you are walking on the tight rope of life and feel worried that you are about to fall and crash? Learn to take the challenges in your life and view them as a "practice lab" to create "magic" by learning to take a negative experience or negative situation and turn it into a "golden opportunity" to become happy and successful in your relationship with yourself, others, and in the work place.
I help couples, children, teenagers, and individuals look at their "blind spots," to promote growth, gain positive insights as they create positive energy and personal strength to to "unplug" the negative fuel disrupting their lives. Learn about alchemy, the laws of attraction and how you get in your own way of creating that very desire you are longing for. I am here to help you manifest the life you want and truly desire. I am currently accepting new patients on most commerical insurance, some government assisted insurance and self-pay.
About Using Your Insurance for Counseling Services
Please call your insurance plan and find out detailed information about your specific mental health coverage.
1. Make sure that I am on your specific plan as a provider. 2. As a Licensed Professional Counselor what services am I allowed to provide you that are covered and allowed by your specific plan. 3. Ask if you have a deductible and how much it is should you have one. 3. Find out what your charges will be to see me if you have not met your deductible. 4. Find out what your co pays are once your deductible is met. 5. If you do not have a deductible find out how many sessions you are allowed each calendar year and what your so pay is for the initial visit, 45 minute and 60 minute appointments. 6. If you are wanting services for family counseling, relationship counseling, or marriage counseling please discuss to see if your plan will cover theses services. Most insurance plans do not allow for V Code Diagnosis such as Grief and Relationship Issues. Most insurance plans do not cover marriage or couples counseling. Please talk to your insurance provider.
If you have mental health problems and suffer from a mood disorder, anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma, ADD/ADHD or obesity and we are a provider for your insurance plan, please give us a call and we can see you as soon as possible after you speak to your insurance provider. I look forward to working with clients that are self pay, a government assisted program (Driscoll Star), and on some of the tiers of Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, Aetna, and Unitedhealthcare. Even though I am shown as being on these insurance plans there are various plans within the Major Plans and I am not on all of them. Some do require a referral from your physician before I can schedule an appointment.
We will be happy to coordinate your mental health care with your psychiatrist or the health care provider prescribing your medications
