Practice Description: Counseling is an opportunity for change! The first step in that direction was taken with a search for a therapist. Whether entering counseling to relieve depression or anxiety, manage anger or addictions, improve intimacy or communication skills, address issues about relationships, sexuality or unhealthy patterns of behavior, enhance well-being or deal more effectively with coping difficulties, an experienced professional looks forward to providing counseling services to you. Over 6500 clients - individuals, couples, families - have received my professional counseling services. Counseling is tailored to the client instead of using a one-treatment model for all clients since different counseling theories and techniques are considered. This offers flexibility! In addition, I promote empowering the client by having the client learn skills that may be used outside of the counseling session for current problems and future issues.

As a licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (NC), a non- blaming, understanding perspective is encouraged. Aside from being a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (S.C.), I hold the credential of Diplomate of Sex Therapy - Certified Sex Therapist, providing treatment for sexual difficulties (e.g., low sexual desire, erection disorders, premature and delayed ejaculation, arousal issues) intimacy, excessive sexual behavior, betrayal, trauma, sex abuse and sexual enrichment.

There are no set number of sessions that are required to attend. The length of treatment is determined in mutual agreement with the client. However, the client may terminate counseling whenever he or she considers it to be appropriate.

If you have any questions about my counseling services, about counseling in general or to schedule an appointment, please call 704 527-2108. I look forward to speaking with you!

Insurance and Billing Instructions: Please contact the insurance company for in-network and out-of-network outpatient mental health benefits asking for both in the following questions:

1. Do I have outpatient mental health benefits?
2. Do I have a deductible and if I do, has any been met and the amount met?
3. What is the co-payment and co-insurance?
4. Is authorization and/or referral from primary care physician is necessary?
5. What are the number of counseling sessions my insurance plan covers?

If there is difficulty obtaining the above insurance information, please contact me (704-527-2108) for possible assistance.

If required by the insurance company, please obtain authorization and/or referral from the primary care physician and please do this prior to the initial counseling session.

If I am in-network provider with the insurance company, I will submit claims to the insurance company with client's permission (once a diagnosis has been determined).

If I am out-of-network with the client's insurance plan, the client would pay me directly and I would provide a statement that the client may submit as a claim to the insurance company.

Additional Comments: There may be an employee assistance program benefit. Please contact the employer or human resources department to inquire about this. These sessions are usually free of charge. If there is this benefit and I am in-network, please ask how many sessions are in the benefit plan and obtain the authorization or reference number prior to the first counseling session, bringing the number to the session. If I am not in network, the employee assistance program may allow sessions with a one-case agreement but a request would need to be made by the potential client in speaking with the employee assistance program representative.
