Good Faith EstimateYou have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate”, explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the No Surprise Act, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.

Counseling can be a difficult and vulnerable process. By us working together, you will get to take an active role in progressing towards your goals by just being yourself.
Counseling is not a one-size-fits-all process. We will work together to tailor and implement a plan that is specific to you and your goals while being able to adjust throughout.
From East Texas to the Western Wyoming, by providing online services, I am able to work with individuals and families from the convenience and comfort of their homes.
If you are new to counseling, you might be curious about what to expect. Here is a broad look at the counseling process:
The Client Portal
To schedule your free consultation video call, you will be redirected to your own secure client portal, which is hosted by SimplePractice. In the client portal, you will be able to schedule appointments, create an account, review and submit documents and make payments.
Free Initial Consultation
During our initial meeting, we will spend 15 minutes talking about your interest in counseling and determining if we are the right fit. If so, we will go ahead and schedule our first session. If not, we will work together to get you connected with better support, whether that is a local provider, a community resource, or another virtual counseling service.
For counseling to be most effective it requires that we build trust so that we can best work as a team. During our first few sessions, we will spend some time getting familiar with each other by exploring what brought you to counseling while also discussing possible goals and strategies.
Next, we will develop a tailored plan of action and begin taking steps forward. Proceeding sessions typically involve tracking progress, celebrating successes, identifying obstacles, and evaluating strategies.
Once your goals have been achieved, we will reflect on the journey and discuss where we go next. At this point, our work together may come to an end or we may discover another goal along the way that you would like to pursue together.
