You can choose an in-person therapy or online coaching session. You can choose between 30-minute or 50-minute sessions

In-person vs online session?

In-person sessions are offered at my office in Gallatin TN (1184 Nashville Pike). Online sessions are offered via ZOOM, a HIPPA compliant secure videoconferencing platform.

Therapy vs Coaching?

I provide therapy and coaching services in-office. ALL online sessions are coaching only. So what is the difference?

The most basic difference is the focus of the sessions.

Therapy sessions involve identifying and reducing symptoms of mental health issues. This may involve conducting diagnostic assessments, doing work to heal past trauma, or working to resolve relationship issues.

Coaching sessions are targeted motivate and encourage you to achieve specific goals of improvement. Coaching does not involve identifying and reducing symptoms; it is more solution-focused than problem-focused. Coaching focuses on clients strengths and resources, and helps clients resolve problems that stand in the way of their goals.

Session Length?

You can choose between a 50-minute session or a 30-minute session. The 50-minute sessions are perfect for people who process information verbally and would like extra time in session for reflection. The 30-minute sessions are stripped down, laser-focused solution coaching sessions, designed to help you set and achieve your goal(s). 30-minute sessions are more appropriate for coaching.

Three Reasons I Don’t Take Insurance

My mission as a therapist and coach is to help you grow and change in a safe environment, where your confidentiality and goals for growth are protected.  Counseling can be a vulnerable experience, and aspects of working with insurance companies may undermine the safe environment I fiercely seek to protect. These are the reasons why I do not accept insurance:

Reason #1: It’s Not Confidential

If I were to work with insurance companies, I would be required to disclose information to a third-party insurance or technology company (for the Electronic Medical Records), and this creates increased risk of your information being compromised. Additionally, if you ever need a federal background check, want to be a pilot, or for a variety of other reasons, a diagnosis can be disclosed through your insurance company. I want you to have the most confidential counseling!

Reason #2: You Have to Be Diagnosed

In order to have insurance cover counseling, I have to diagnose you. Even if it’s not appropriate, there has to be a diagnosis. For example, if someone seeks counseling for help adjusting to a new life event, or for help creating and maintaining a healthier lifestyle, they would need a diagnosis for it to be covered by insurance. The diagnosis would remain on your permanent medical record. I, along with many therapist colleagues, feel everyone should have access to counseling, not just those who qualify for a diagnosis. I want you to get help without having to have a diagnosis!

Reason #3: They Decide Your Treatment

Insurance companies decide treatment. They determine the number of sessions and the frequency. I believe this should be a collaborative decision between the you and your therapist. Sometimes you need shorter sessions or longer ones. Maybe you need them twice per week or once per month. My clients enjoy the freedom to choose what treatment is best along with their therapist. I want you to get the best quality of counseling treatment!
