Medical Support Counseling

F.A.Q.

 

I  address those aspects of disease that interfere with your normal  routine of living, as well as the emotional aspects experienced by  patient, caregiver and family members.

What is the fee?
The  fee is $130 per session for individual, couples or family therapy  regardless of the number of persons attending. There is a missed session  fee if you do not cancel your appointment within 24 hours of the  session. Payment is due on the day of service.

Are telephone counseling sessions available?
Most  definitely! The nature of medical support counseling often calls for  urgent attention. Phone contact provides the optimum and most convenient  help to clients at these critical times.

How long do sessions last?
Sessions are 50 minutes in length.

How often are sessions scheduled?
You  may schedule the session frequency in a manner that fits your needs.  However, many clients will attend weekly appointments until they see an  improvement in their situation, and then may decrease the frequency.

Do you take health insurance?
Not at this time

What are the office hours?
I  try to accommodate your schedule by offering some evening and weekend  hours in addition to normal business hours. Sessions are by appointment  only.

Do you prescribe medications if they are needed?
No. I am not a medical doctor and do not have prescription privileges. I will, however, make appropriate referrals.
