Do you Accept Insurance?
Currently, I am not accepting commercial health insurance (although that may change in the near futures); however, I can provide documentation for out of network expenditures if your insurance company reimburses you for out of pocket mental health services. Book Coaching payment plans are available.
Do you prescribe medication?
No, only a doctor or nurse practitioner can prescribe medication. Preferably, a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner should be prescribing any psychotropic (mental health) medications. A primary care doctor can also prescribe some psychotropic medications, such as anti-depressants. It is best practice for your therapist to connected to your prescriber if you are taking any medications for mental health.
Do I have to talk about the trauma I have experienced in the past?
Absolutely not. I will never ask you to talk about anything you do not feel ready to discuss. Re-calling the details of past traumatic experinces can actually be re-traumatizing, causing further distress. I am vigilant to protect my clients from these kinds of experiences in therapy.
Do you provide court mandated treatment?
Unfortunately, I am not able to accomodate at this time?
What is Book Coaching?
