New clients can choose between a free consultation or a full session at half price. Please Note: After the birth of my son in July, I decided to limit my practice to part time. I am not sure when I will start accepting new clients again.
The free consultation can be done in person or over the phone. Consultations are twenty minutes long.
If you would like to make the most of your consultation, consider doing some of the tips suggested on the Advice Seekers page.
First Session Half Price
For couples and families, I recommend doing a full session at half price instead of the free consultation. Twenty minutes is generally not enough time when there is more than one client present.
The full session at half price is also a good option for individuals who want to get straight to work.
Sessions are fifty minutes, starting at the scheduled appointment time. If you are going to be more than five minutes late, please call or text me 601-397-4273. If you notify me before the scheduled appointment time, I may be able to make provisions for you to receive your full session.
Insurance, Fees and Methods of Payment
I am a network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Advanced Health Systems (which means at the time of your session all you pay me is your standard co-pay and I will bill your insurance for the rest of the fee--the free consultation is still free). For those with other insurance companies, I am happy to assist you with the process of submitting a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement depends on your policy and out-of-network benefits.
My fee is $120 per session. Grants for reduced session fees are available. I currently accept credit card payments through PayPal, checks, and cash.
Please give a minimum of 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a session. If you notify me between 24 hours and one hour before the scheduled time, you will be billed for half of the fee. If you do not give any notification you will be billed for the whole fee. In the case of emergencies, the fee may be waived. If you wish to have your counseling session but cannot make it to my office, we can consider doing a phone or internet/video session.
Inclement Weather Policy
If you do not feel safe traveling to my office due to inclement weather conditions, please refrain from traveling. If you need to cancel due to the weather, please call or text me as soon as you are able.
