Submit Your Interest for a Consult

Submit your interest for a consult using the steps below. Please note that my practice is currently full, and I am accepting people for waitlist status. Please only submit your information if you are willing to wait!

Step 1/3: Know the Basics

Our initial consult will be anywhere from 30 to 65 minutes long. The session is pro-rated, with a $150 charge for the full 65 minutes, or $75 for 30 minutes. The time will be used for you to tell me about yourself and your needs, I can tell you about how I work, and I can answer questions. If it feels like we will be a good match, we will go over paperwork and scheduling.

 

IMPORTANT! Before you book, please be aware of these basic FAQs:

  1. My rate for a 65-minute session is $150. Most clients start off coming to therapy once every 1-2 weeks.

  2. Appointment time slots are during the day, Monday through Thursday, starting between 9 am and 4:20 pm. I have the ability to see clients in-person on Monday through Wednesday. I do online sessions only on Thursday and Friday.

  3. I have limited availability and am intentional about the clients I accept. I will use the information on the form below to assess the appropriateness of fit. 

  4. I do not work directly with insurance companies, but depending on your policy, you may be able to submit an invoice for OON benefits. If this is something you're wanting to pursue, please call your insurance company before your consult and review OON info in the FAQs at the bottom of the page HERE before we meet.

Sound good?! Fill out the form and below. It'll only take a few minutes!

Step 3/3: Choose a Time

Last step! Use the button below to select a consult time that works for you. Then, wait for me to confirm. If you prefer a video consult, a link will be sent to you that you can access on a browser by computer, or the app "Telehealth by Simple Practice" by phone. Email alternativetherapystl (at) gmail.com if you have any issues.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Consults are completely free. However, a $30 fee will apply for consults if you do not show up and do not reschedule or cancel at least 24 hours in advance. Even though consults are free, I do take them seriously and carve out time in my day for them, and hope that you do, too! To reiterate: if you show up for the consult, there is no charge. If you DO NOT show up, there will be a $30 charge. Thanks for understanding!
