Working with Carrie
I always start with an initial assessment gathering background information and getting to know you. During this time, we can both decide whether I am the best fit in order to meet your treatment goals. I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in successful therapy. Successful therapy also involves a large commitment of time, money, and energy, so finding the right fit is important. If you choose to engage in the therapy process with me, we will generally meet once every 2 weeks more or less depending on your treatment needs.
Below is a list of services provided and specialty areas:
I offer individual or couples therapy for anyone 16 years or older.
Individual Services: Trauma/Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Life Transitions, Work-related concerns, Work-Life Balance, Stress Management, Low Self-Esteem, Relationship Difficulties, Personal Development and Self-Improvement
Couples Services: Relationship Conflicts, Communication Skills, Premarital Counseling, Trauma/Abuse, Adjustment
I am currently contracted with BCBS and Midland's Choice as an “In-Network” provide (these are subject to change) and I will bill the insurance company directly for services rendered. If I am not “In-Network” with your insurance company, I am happy to work with you, and your services will be subject to your “Out-of-network” deductible (different from your In-network deductible). I do not tend to work with Employee Assistance Programs. I strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company prior to receiving services to make sure you know how they will be covered by your individual plan. I accept payment by Credit Card, Debit Card and Health Savings Accounts as well.
There will be a one-time fee of $250 for the diagnostic assessment and then moving forward fees include $185 for individual sessions, $200 for couple, or $250 for family therapy appointments. Other services subject to fees include telephone conversations lasting longer than 15 minutes, document completion/preparation, and the time spent performing any other service you may request of me, are billed at $60/15 minutes increments. Please note, that I am not a trained custody evaluator, so I do not provide custody evaluations. I will also not become involved in any legal proceedings that involve the custody of a child. I do not perform any forensic work or evaluations if we are participating in a therapeutic relationship.
No Surprises Act Information
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care 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 health care 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 health care 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.
