Here are some common questions I get asked. I know choosing a counselor is a big decision, and I'm here to help you feel at ease! If you don't see your specific question below, please contact me! I'm here to answer any questions you may have.
• How do I make an appointment with you?
To make an appointment, please call me directly at (205) 832-0756. Rest assured! My voicemail is completely confidential! If you can't immediately reach me, please leave a message with your name and number and I will return your call as soon as possible.
If you have general questions about the counseling process, you may send me a message using the Contact button located in the top right corner of this page. And feel free to contact me via my Psychology Today page or my GoodTherapy page.
• Do you offer free consultations?
I am happy to discuss any questions you may have and provide information either over the phone or through email. However, any appointment in-office will be billed.
• What is the first session like?
• How much do you charge?
I accept payments on an income-based sliding fee scale. If you're worried about payment, please contact me. Special plans and charges can be discussed!
For individuals, the sliding scale is typically as follows:
$20,000 and below: $40
$20,001 - $40,000: $60
$40,001 - $60,000: $80
$60,001 - $80,000: $100
$80,001 - $100,000: $120
$100,001 and above: $140
For couples, the sliding scale is typically as follows:
$20,000 - $60,000: $80
$60,001 - $100,000: $140
$100,001 and above: $160
• what forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, card, and checks.
• What days & Hours do you work?
I work Monday - Thursday, typically from 11am - 6pm. If you need different appointment times, please contact me! My schedule is flexible and can be made to accommodate your needs.
• How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions each person needs varies greatly and depends on what issues you're wanting to work on. These concerns will be discussed during your initial session. Remember: you're in charge of what we work on and for how long.
• Are the things I say confidential?
Of course! I take your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. This will all be discussed during our first meeting.
