Are you a Christian counselor?
I am a Christian and a Licensed Professional Counselor. Spirituality is deeply important to me, and it is important that I acknowledge the presence of God in all I do. God is the source of meaning, purpose, and healing in my life. I enjoy the opportunities to share God with others. However, I do understand that not all people share my passion and beliefs and struggle with the concept of God and religion. Spiritual integration is at the request of the client, and the lack of integration will in no way impact the effectiveness of counseling sessions.
Do you work with couples and families?
Yes, Rosalind Smith Counseling works with youth, individuals, couples, and families.
How much does counseling cost?
The initial 60-minute session is $125 for individuals and $175 for couples and families. Sessions thereafter are $75 per hour for individuals and $125 for couples and families. Some insurances will help to cover the cost of counseling. Currently, I do not accept insurance; however, I can provide a document to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. It is in your best interest to contact your insurance provider to discuss the benefits of your plan and ask about submitting an out of network claim. Once an appointment is scheduled, you will be expected to pay for it unless you provide 24 hours advanced notice of cancellation.
How long does a counseling session take?
Sessions are typically scheduled for 60 minutes; however, couples and families may desire longer sessions. Most people commit to weekly sessions to ensure consistent progress.
What can I expect during the first session?
You can expect to have some paperwork and assessments to complete. You can expect to share your reasons for seeking counseling along with your background and personal history.
Is my conversation with the therapist confidential?
