When you contact me (by text, voice mail or email), my first questions to you will be regarding what insurance you're planning to use (if any) and what your availability for sessions might be. I am covered by most insurance but not all (see above). I will let you know what might be available, and if you let me know that it looks like the day/time will work on an every-week basis, I will then email you the Informed Consent and New Client Registration forms to complete and return (by email or text message).
If there are questions or information you're not comfortable with providing by these electronic means, we can take care of this during the first session. When the time for your session comes, you'll be contacting me at my phone (207) 892-7656, whether phone or video. Most clients seem to prefer audio, but the choice is yours.
I'll want to hear what's most important for you, at each session, and listen carefully, so I can provide you with support, strategies, tools to help. We'll work together on a one-session-at-a-time basis, at the same day and time each week, which seems to work best for most counseling clients.
I'm always ready, too, to answer your questions and concerns about my training, background or any other aspect of our work. I am both humbled and grateful to be invited on the life journeys of my clients. Having worked on three hotlines before establishing my own private practice, I am well-versed in providing comfortable, effective telehealth sessions.
