Frequently Asked Questions
Are you available 24/7 for me?
I only work during standard business hours on business days. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, and 10- 3 p.m. Thursdays. Just like you, I am dedicated to my overall wellness which means I have to balance work and my personal life.
I am not an emergency mental health provider. Call 988 for a mental health crisis.
Do I have to have a mental illness to see a counselor?
No. That is a common myth. Counselors can help with everyday stressors, relationships, or simply just to have a caring sounding board.
Counselors are not required to have a diagnosis except if clients want insurance to pay for your services.
Do I have to see you in person?
I offer online video sessions on Mondays and Thursdays. If you prefer seeing me in person I have openings available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The office space is located in San Antonio, Texas near North Star Mall.
Do you accept insurance?
While some counselors accept insurance, I do not. I have found insurance to provide barriers to wellness due to lack of sufficient coverage, co-pays, and requiring a diagnosis, possible delays in payment.
I do offer a limited amount of reduced-cost session fees for those who qualify
Do I have to be a Christian to work with you?
No, I am open to all faiths, those who are questioning faith, those without religious/ spiritual affiliation, and those who are considering becoming Christians.
How do you incorporate the Christian faith into counseling?
We will use bible scripture, faith-based books, worksheets, prayer, and meditation, and put into place faith-based goals in conjunction with clinical mental health interventions.
We will find a balance between mind, body, and spirit but we will lead with God first.
