FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG AND HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?
Sessions are 50min each and the frequency between appointments will depend on each individual's goals, but it is my priority to assist you in reaching your goals as fast as possible, while building lasting change. Our sessions will all take place via live video chat, no emails, texting or other asynchronous therapy.
IS ONLINE THERAPY RIGHT FOR EVERYONE?
While online therapy certainly increases accessibility for those who may not be geographically located near a provider, have physical limitations or have busy schedules, there may be times that I would suggest in person therapy. Common examples include individuals at high risk or with severe psychiatric illness or adolescents/minors.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
I currently accept BCBS only. I am also able to provide a receipt for you to be able to submit for possible reimbursement. There are advantages to not using insurance such as not needing a mental health diagnosis and more autonomy to set your therapeutic goals and format your sessions.
Payment is required at the time of service and is processed through my secure, online portal. I can email you my informed consent for more details.
DO I HAVE TO BE TECH SAVVY TO DO ONLINE COUNSELING?
Absolutely not! I will provide you with tips to prepare for your first session as well as troubleshooting tips.
CAN I DO ONLINE COUNSELING FROM THE COMFORT OF MY OWN HOME?
Absolutely! I encourage clients to identify a private, quiet and comfortable place for our sessions. It is my priority to protect your confidentiality, but I find that when clients feel comfortable in their environment they are able to be more vulnerable and make faster progress towards their goals.
CAN WE STILL MEET IF I AM TRAVELING?
I am licensed to practice online therapy with clients in the state of South Carolina (LMFT #4603) If you are traveling within the state and have updated me of your identified private location (not an airport or in the car while you are driving, etc) for the meeting then I am happy to keep our appointment time. Laws vary depending on state or country so we can discuss the possibility of meeting if you are traveling outside of SC.
