Most days until 6:00 pm
(by appointment only)
Congratulations on your decision to seek counseling. The counseling experience is a process of exploration and discovery of what is working in your life as well as what is no longer working and limiting your potential. I recognize that there is an emotional journey that takes place to reach the point of seeking out a therapist, as well as strong emotions, that can come up in selecting one. Therefore, I commend you for making it this far. Through exercising the courage that you obviously have, faith in the process, and commitment to reach your goals.
Client Shortcuts (click on a header below to take you directly to the page)
Allied Counseling Services, PLLC uses a client portal that is HIPPA compliant to keep information shared confidential. I cannot ensure the confidentiality of any form of communication through electronic media, including text messages. If you prefer to communicate via email or text messaging for issues regarding scheduling or cancellations, I will do so. While I may try to return messages in a timely manner, I cannot guarantee immediate response and request that you do not use these methods of communication to discuss therapeutic content and/or request assistance for emergencies. If this is something that you choose to do, you are doing so at your own risk.
Video Sessions Instructions
There will be a secure link sent to you in your appointment reminder email to attend session. Although rare, if there are complications with communication we may use an alternative form of tele-counseling such as telephone, Psychology Today or Doxy.me.
Confidentiality & Privacy
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
Exceptions* include but are not limited to:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
* Other exceptions to confidentiality and privacy are available to new clients.
