Do you see couples, minors, or children?

At this time, I only see adults ages 18 and up for individual therapy.

Is individual therapy a good fit for me?

I specialize in individual therapy and mostly work in that way, but for couples and family relationship problems, you may want to consider couples or family counseling. But it is also rather common for someone in marriage or family counseling to have their own counselor they see for individual therapy. If you have a psychiatrist or primary care doctor involved in your mental health treatment, it is often appropriate to simultaneously engage in outpatient talk therapy. You are welcome to talk to your psychiatrist or other service provider and/or contact me directly to get help determining if individual therapy is a good fit for you at this time. If you are feeling depressed and need someone to talk to, then remember someone is always available at the suicide hotline: 1-800-273-TALK, and you should call 911 for emergencies.

What can I expect from my first session?

We want to make beginning therapy as easy as possible. To get started, you may email, call, or fill out the contact form below. We’ll get back with you as soon as we can, typically within 1-3 business days, to discuss your problem and answer any questions you may have. From there, if you'd like, we can schedule an intake session and see about continuing with weekly or bi-weekly sessions. Sessions can be in-person or virtual.

Do you accept insurance and what are the payment options?

No, we do not accept insurance. As a result, your information, treatment, and the content of your therapy remain more private and in your control. This also reduces costs of doing business, which allows us to offer the best rates possible. Payment for 50-minute individual therapy sessions is $35-$70, based on a sliding scale and is due at time of service. Payment can be made via credit/debit card, check, cash, or Paypal. All card information is stored securely.

How does the sliding scale work?

We will ask you a few questions about your financial situation to determine if you qualify. Mainly, it is a matter of household income in terms of net pay (take home pay) per month and household size. If your situation is complicated then we can discuss that.

How does privacy work?

Trust is a cornerstone of counseling. In short, we do our best to limit disclosures to only what information is absolutely necessary by law. We abide by the ACA code of ethics and Missouri and Federal law regarding privacy and confidentiality of client information. That includes HIPAA and FERPA laws that limit the disclosure of medical and education information, as well as assuring clients have access to their records. We are required to disclose information in (1) the case of a court order, (2) the mandated reporting of abuse or neglect of minors or the elderly, and (3) the duty to warn another party of foreseeable and life threatening harm. Furthermore, Isaac Crawford, PLPC is provisionally licensed under the direct supervision of Keith Wilson, LPC with New Leaf Counseling. So, Keith Wilson, LPC will have access to client records and be bound by the same confidentiality as Isaac Crawford, PLPC. Isaac Crawford, PLPC will at times consult, confidentially, with a small group of one to four professional counselors for the purpose of providing improved and ethical counseling services and client information will be shared in as limited of a manner as possible in that setting.
