What You Can
recommendations for addressing specific problems
and consultation with experienced health
professionals, when necessary
treatment program to promote behavioral and emotional
change Appointments are conveniently arranged as
quickly as possible.
To enter one of my
groups, an individual needs to schedule an initial
evaluation with me for 1 hour and 15 minutes, please call for fee information. There we determine together if you would be eligible for
group therapy and if the existing group would be a good fit for you. It is also an opportunity for you to see if you are
comfortable with me.
Group therapy is weekly. Please call for fee information.
I also require that you be in individual therapy while in group. This does not have to be with me. It can be with another
therapist. I have found that group alone is over-stimulating and the success rate for benefiting from group is
poor without individual therapy. There are circumstances where I bypass
this requirement however we would have to discuss this and this is based on a case by case basis.
If you are still interested in entering group therapy and have scheduled an appointment with me then you must fill out the Client Intake
Form and read and sign the Client Contract form below and bring with to your first session. You must also read the Notice of
Privacy Practices below as well.

If you are planning to use your health insurance you must call your insurance yourself to find out if they cover for therapy services. Just because your health insurance promises to pay for psychotherapy does not mean that it covers all the different psychotherapist credentials and settings.
Here is the information you need to ask:
Many of the costs of outpatient psychotherapy are covered by health insurance. Please check with your insurance company. It is crucial that you find out what YOUR individual coverage is. These companies most often will only provide you with the information regarding your coverage not me as the professional providing the services. The following guidelines will be helpful for inquiring about your mental health outpatient coverage for my services:
* Ask for details about your outpatient psychiatric/mental health coverage.
* Ask if they reimburse for outpatient psychotherapy from a certified social worker with a Master’s in Social work and certified with the state of Michigan not affiliated with a clinic working independently. I have an MSW and a LMSW (which is Michigan’s licensure for social workers).
* Ask if your policy has a requirement regarding licensure and degree (i.e. M.D., Ph.D.,
M.S.W, M.A. or does it require the clinician to be supervised by M.D. or Ph.D.).
* If they provide coverage for my services then ask how much it pays per visit, do you have a maximum number of visits or maximum dollar amount per calendar year, how much is your deductible and will they reimburse you as you are paying the therapist directly and would need the insurance company to write their check to you.
