Support That Makes a Difference
Counseling in school
Sometimes, due to individual and/or family circumstances, providing counseling in the school is a productive way to address counseling needs. In addition to providing individual counseling for youth in grades K-12, I also connect with teachers and/or school staff to address academic/behavioral/social and emotional status. I work with school staff to find a time that works best with the individuals class schedule, and schedule sessions that are consistent each week.
Counseling at home
Connecting with the parent /guardian of individuals receiving counseling is very important. Initial paperwork is completed before sessions begin. Regular contact with the parent/guardian is important for the treatment process. Family counseling sessions can be provided to support the overall well being of the family as a whole.
Additional locations for counseling are considered per referral. Insurances include: Medicaid: Straight Medicaid, United Health Care, Meridian, Mclaren
I recognize the need for counseling for individuals who do not meet criteria for intensive community mental health services and yet may have difficulty attending an office for services. I believe counseling should be available to all regardless of life circumstances. I am also able to coordinate additional supportive services if needed.
