WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FIRST SESSION?

Great question! When you make the decision to begin counseling, you take a huge step toward obtaining mental and emotional health for yourself and your relationships. However, I understand that if you don’t know what to expect from the process, it can feel a bit scary. Please know, one of my top priorities is that you feel safe in process of therapy and in our therapeutic relationship. If you have any questions or concerns as we begin, please bring them to my attention before or during our first session.
Upon scheduling your first appointment, you will be sent the forms to complete and bring with you to your session. These forms will provide me with some information about you, but also give you additional information about the counseling process with me.
When you arrive at your appointment time, I will greet you and invite you into my office. Here you will be invited to share your story and we will begin to identify why you are seeking help at this time. I will find out from you what is not working and help identify ways we can work together to make it better. Our first session will primarily be a time to identify what brought you to therapy as well as to establish your goals for therapy. This early time is significant as I come to understand your history and any other contributing factors related to your therapy goals. If all goes well, we will then decide how often we will meet and what issues we will work on together.
Keep in mind that therapy is a team effort, and as a team our purpose is to accomplish the goals you desire to reach. I want to encourage you to be realistic and patient about this process as therapy is rarely a quick fix, but rather a rich process that requires time as well as a trusting relationship built between us.
I sincerely look forward to meeting you!

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE FOR REIMBURSEMENT?

As an intern I am unable to bill most insurance and typically insurance will not cover your session should you seek to be reimbursed directly. I do understand that having health insurance can be important when you have medical issues and expenses. However, I strongly encourage you to consider the long-term implications before using your insurance for your counseling sessions. Using your medical insurance for counseling has some risks involved. In order to use your medical insurance for counseling, you must be given a mental disorder diagnosis and that diagnosis will become a part of your permanent medical record. Having a mental diagnosis on your record may carry long-term implications and may hinder you from being able to obtain life insurance, disability or health insurance in the future. Additionally, filing an insurance claim means your diagnosis, dates of service, etc., are no longer totally confidential, and your insurance company will be aware of your treatment and diagnosis.

WILL MY SESSIONS BE CONFIDENTIAL?

My professional code of National Board for Certified Counselors ethics and the Nevada statutes prevent me from disclosing information that is shared in therapy or releasing information without your written consent. Your right to confidentiality will be carefully maintained and will not be disclosed without your written permission, except in cases of possible harm to yourself or others (especially children or the elderly) or a criminal court subpoena.
Please know, due to my internship status I may be required to share information of your particular case with my immediate supervisor, Dena Johns, during supervision. This is within the confines of the code of ethics and confidentiality of NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors). It is not intended to be a violation of our confidentially between client and therapist but a way for my supervisor to ensure you are receiving sufficient treatment from me.
