I realize many people would prefer toemail me and I do respond to emails within 24-hours; however, before I can make an appointment, I will need some information from you to ensure that I can address your concerns appropriately. For this reason, you will get an appointment set-up faster if you call my office at 801-734-4945 or me directly at 801-472-8442.
What is your schedule?
I see clients Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 9am - 5pm.
Where are you located?
My office is located in Orem, just east of I-15 off the 1600 North exit. The address is 1453 N. 1200 W.
How often would we be meeting?
Initially, I recommend we meet weekly to address the concerns that bring you to counseling, so you can feel some relief more quickly. Once we feel you have a good footing, we can explore a schedule that best meets your needs. If you are dealing with a severe crisis, additional sessions might be necessary to provide you support and guidance until you can better cope with the crisis.
How many sessions will I need?
I generally observe that most progress occurs in a moderate amount of sessions, meaning between 4 and 20 sessions. I even see progress in clients after just three sessions. That is my goal to make some improvement as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee how long your counseling will go. It will really depend on your presenting concerns, and how willing you are to do the work.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes, however please know that working a fee-for-service is much simpler and keeps your confidentiality protected. I am currently provided services on the following panels: Aetna United Behavioral Health Wise Provider Network - State employees and unionized employees Blue Cross/Blue Shield EMI DMBA typically will pay out of network for slightly higher copay.
As always, if you insist on using insurance check with your network to see if I am a provider on your specific plan. If your Insurance does not reimburse, counseling will be disrupted until payments are received. I love what I do, but I can't work for free.
What are your fees?
Generally, my fees are as follows:
• Sessions are $100 per each 45- to 50-minute session
If we find longer sessions are necessary, I can prorate accordingly.
Fees will be going up in the next few weeks so call now to get locked in at the current rate. How much do you think you are worth? Counseling isn't a task you take lightly. I wish I could guarantee your success, I am confident in our ability to work together and make significant changes last when we are really clear about your problem and what much better looks like for you. I have noticed that being clear about these things really helps with the progress.
What are your payment options?
Payment is due at the time of session. I accept card, cash or checks. I also work with LDS Bishops or other ecclesiastical leaders.
How do you handle my confidentiality?
Generally speaking, anything that occurs in session, stays in session. However, I am a mandated reporter & required by State law to breach confidentiality if you tell me you're a danger to yourself, a danger to others, or if I hear about abuse or neglect of minors, the elderly, or dependent adults.
