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 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 is the process to get started? I want to make beginning therapy as easy as possible. To get started, you may email, call, or fill out the contact form below. I’ll get back with you as soon as I can, typically within 1-3 business days, to answer any initial questions and here the gist of what you would like from therapy. From there, we can schedule an initial session, which serves as a consultation, a chance to ask questions and see if we are a good fit. If we are a good fit then we could schedule weekly or bi-weekly sessions. In-person sessions are typically preferred but virtual is an option for those whom it fits best or who can't access in person due to transportation or excessive distance. 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 $85, due at the time of service. Payment can be made via credit/debit card, check, cash, or Paypal. All card information is stored securely. There is a limited number of spots that I can offer on a sliding scale of $45-$65. At this time I am taking a waitlist for the sliding scale as all the spots are filled. 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. Isaac Crawford, LPC 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.
