Get In Touch
Please call or complete the below information to determine if I can meet your individual needs. Then we can schedule a session. If this is an emergency, please be advised to call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
I’m Here to Help
I welcome individuals, couples, and families as clients; regardless of race, religion, or gender. A person who seeks counseling may be experiencing a wide range of difficulties and I am here to meet you in that challenge to walk with you.
I accept private/self pay for services. Clients are responsible for payment at the time of service. There is also an option to pay via credit card payment. Receiving quality services is important to me and I never want financial constraints to be a barrier to treatment; therefore, payment plans are also an option. A sliding scale is available for those who qualify.
Confidentiality & Privacy
Your relationship here is held in the strictest confidence. Confidentiality and privacy practice forms are provided and reviewed at your first session.
I accept all major forms of payment including cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans. I am also a registered provider with State probation.
The session ranges from 45 to 60 minutes depending on your needs and treatment plan. Typically you will meet with your therapist weekly. The overall duration of therapy depends on your individual needs. This is something that will be discussed and worked on together with your therapist to determine the best course of action for you.
The Initial First Session?
The first session is scheduled for an hour. It is used to gather information regarding your current situation along with your past to gain a full understanding of you and your wants and needs for therapy.
The treatment plan is developed between you and the counselor. This plan will include the goals of therapy. This may include referring you to a primary care physician to rule out any medical concerns to facilitate a full wellness plan.
Is Therapy Confidential?
Your relationship and services are held in the strictest confidence according to HIPPA guidelines. Privacy practices will be provided at your initial session.
When working with minors, confidentiality continues to be an important component within the therapeutic realtionship. Therefore parents/guardians are provided with general updates as requested. If there is a safety concern a parent/guardian will be asked to join for part of the session and the client will be encouraged to disclose this information directly. Mary will work with family to develop an appropriate safety plan or intervention.
