how to Schedule
Are you looking to schedule an appointment or have some questions? Everything you need is right here at your fingertips. It is quick and easy! You can use the simple online scheduling system, call me, or fill out the form below. No one under the age of 18 is being accepted as a new client. College students and young adults are required to set up their own counseling appointment. Parents can call to inquire about services, but all appointments for anyone over 18 need to be set up by the individual attending sessions.
The online scheduling system is quick and easy to use! To become a new client, simply click the link below to find appointment options. After you find a time, you will enter your name, phone number and email. You will also be asked to your enter credit card information. (This feature is in place to prevent hackers from requesting bogus appointments.) The card will not be charged unless it is used after the session for your payment or for a no-show fee. You can choose to use another payment method for your session. You will be notified via email if the appointment time is confirmed.
After an appointment is confirmed by Christine, you will be asked to complete the office intake paperwork and read the practice policy documents. If the appointment is for a couple, after the first person requests an appointment, the name and email of the partner will be requested and then the partner will also receive the intake paperwork via email. (The office maintains a strict $45 late cancellation policy. If an appointment is made and confirmed, it must be changed or cancelled 24 hours before the appointment or the $45 late cancellation fee will be charged to the card on file.)

CALLING FOR APPOINTMENTS
You may not want to schedule an appointment without talking to me first. No problem whatsoever! Finding the right counselor can be an intimidating and difficult process. Feel free to call if you have any questions. When you call, PLEASE leave your contact information so your call can be returned. I provide a no-charge 5-10 minute phone consultation when calling to learn more about my counseling services. If you have an emergency of any type, call 911 or seek immediate medical assistance.

PAYMENTS AND INSURANCE
I do not process any insurance in my office. You can read more about the purposes for that on the FAQ page. Payments can be made via cash, check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) can also be used to cover counseling services. I take payments directly in my office after each session.
A few thoughts when struggling through the cost of counseling
Seeking healing and restoration is well-worth the investment of time and resources. Think more in terms of VALUE instead of simply COST. Each of us have the choice to use our resources for what matters and what we value most. Think about this:
Two family meals eating out at a restaurant can cost the same as a counseling session.
One quick trip to Target for miscellaneous items can easily run up a tab about the same price as a counseling session.
A couple of Amazon purchases could equal the price of a well-spent session working on a relationship bringing you distress.
Numerous trips through the drive-though can quickly add up to the price of a counseling session.
Sacrifice in one area can reap incredible rewards in another. If you are struggling in an area but don’t feel like you can afford counseling, set a budget for yourself for the next 2 months and save enough for a couple of sessions. Take an inventory of what is most important to you and then willingly spend your resources on what matters most. And if payment is difficult, ask a family member to invest in your relational, spiritual, and emotional health by chipping in a little to help with session cost. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
