How to get started
Contact me to request an appointment for a complimentary 15-minute initial consultation to see if we’d be a good fit and to have your questions answered.
Please leave a message if I’m unavailable by phone as I may be in session with a client. I return all phone calls within 24 hours.
Talk therapy fees: Individual and couples/marriage counseling sessions (60 mins) are $100.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) fees: The standard timeframe I expect for most people with non-complex issues is 90-minutes. These extended sessions allow me to provide ART effectively and without being time-pressured. ART sessions are $125.
Fees are due at each session unless previous arrangements have been made. All major debit/credit cards are accepted for payment as well as HSA and FSA plans. A form of payment on file (credit, debit, health savings card) is required for me to schedule a session with you.
If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify me at least 24-hours in advance to avoid incurring a late-cancel or no-show fee of $45.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, please discuss this with me during our initial phone conversation, as I do offer a reduced fees.
Be Well Michigan Counseling Services, LLC does not accept insurance and is not in network with any insurance provider at this time.
I recommend scheduling a free 15-minute phone or video initial consultation. This is to ensure your concerns are with the scope of my expertise. It also allows for introductions and gives you an opportunity to ask questions. During this time I can share with you more information about how I work as a psychotherapist and explain the next steps in getting started with counseling.
It’s important that you have a counselor who can meet your needs and is skilled in the areas you want to focus on in counseling. This consultation helps ensure that is the case.
Your First Session
After our initial 15-minute phone consultation and after you’ve decided that you would like to begin counseling, you’re probably wondering what your first session will look like. We’ll begin with a discussion about confidentiality and then I will ask you to begin sharing about yourself and what brings you to counseling. As I get to know you in this first session, we will also discuss your goals for counseling and what you can expect from me, as your therapist.
