Q: What does LPCC mean?
A: LPCC stands for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. This is a licensure held by providers who have completed specific graduate education, supervision hours, state licensing exams, and additional licensing board requirements. I am licensed as an LPCC in Ohio and Kentucky.
Q: Do you offer teletherapy services?
A: Yes – All services are provided through teletherapy (secure video, phone, and/or chat).
Q: How long do sessions last?
A: This depends on the specific service you are interested in. Intake assessments last 60-90 minutes, individual therapy sessions last 50-60 minutes, and neurodiversity autism evaluations last about 60-90 minutes. This can be adjusted based on your needs, if discussed with me before your scheduled session.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: No – I do not accept insurance. I made this decision for a few reasons: 1) Insurance companies request private information about you to approve therapy services (i.e. your diagnosis, progress notes, and treatment plans), and 2) Insurance companies can limit the services available to you based on this private information. By paying out-of-pocket for services, you have increased privacy and control over your therapy experience. Due to the fact that I work primarily with neurodivergent people, I feel that working out-of-pocket is the most ethical way to ensure I can provide quality services that are tailored to your specific needs.
Q: How do I pay for my sessions?
A: You can pay for your sessions with a debit card, credit card, or HSA card through the client portal. I will give you access to the client portal after scheduling your first session.
Q: Do you offer sliding scale fees?
A: Yes – I offer sliding scale fees for all services. Please let me know if you are interested in sliding scale fees or have questions about this process before your first session.
