SCHEDULING AND PAYMENT
Appointments are approximately 45-50 minutes long. If you should arrive late for an appointment, your session will end at its regularly scheduled time. However if, for any reason, your appointment does not begin on time due to our lateness, be assured that you will receive the full session.
If you must cancel an appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice by leaving a voicemail at 601 925-0707.
Forgotten appointments or last minute cancellations (unless an emergency or illness) will be assessed the usual fee, according to the therapist’s decision. Please note that insurance does not cover canceled appointments. The fee for each session is due at the time of the session and may be paid by personal check or cash.

Any arrangement you have for medical insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. In order for you to know clearly what your coverage is, you will need to call your insurance carrier and find out exactly what outpatient mental health services your policy covers with your therapist and what the conditions of coverage are. We do not file insurance for our clients.
What kinds of things do people seek help for?
People seek counseling for a variety of reasons including feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, worried, sad, or angry. People also seek out counseling to help change behaviors that are troubling them including addictive or disordered behaviors or behaviors that affect their relationships at home or at work. Some people seek counseling because they have a life goal that has been eluding them and they are ready to explore their barriers. Other people seek out counseling because they know they are going through a difficult time or facing a difficult decision and they desire a place to sort through their feelings and move forward in their life with intention and clear thinking.
How does counseling help?
When a counseling relationship is working well, clients experience new insights into their situations, clearer thinking, increased energy, better understanding of their feelings and needs, release of troubling emotions that have held them back or been confusing, and a greater sense of wholeness and peace within themselves. Therapy is a process, and a working partnership develops between client and therapist. Therapy is not always comfortable or straightforward as difficult emotions and ways of being often have to be sorted through in order for new energy and change to appear. In spite of the uncomfortable emotions experienced, clients we have worked with feel that the temporary pain of the working through process is well worth leaving behind the continual pain of living the way they had previously.
Is what I say confidential?
Yes. All client-therapist conversations are private and confidential. It is also confidential information that a person is meeting with a counselor. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, we follow the professional ethical standards of the National Board of Certified Counselors. Only in rare exceptions when the safety of a client or other is at risk can disclosure of confidential client-therapist information take place.
What can I expect at the first session?
You can expect to talk about the concern(s) that brought you into counseling and also about your background and personal history. You can share on a level that feels comfortable for you. You can also expect to have some brief paperwork to fill out. How long does a counseling session take? Sessions are typically scheduled for 45-50 minutes and most people see their counselor once a week for consistent progress to be made.
How much does a counseling session cost?
A typical counseling session with a therapist with a Master’s level education is between $150- $300 depending on the state and therapist’s experience. Our fee is $180 per session. Most insurance companies will cover some of this cost.
