Where are you located?
I am currently doing virtual sessions, but do have an office located within another practice on
1101 Old Trolley Rd, STE 400
Summerville, SC 29485
Where should I go when I get there?
For virtual sessions, you will receive a link to the virtual office about 15-30 minutes prior to our session time. You can attend on your mobile device or computer, but please be in a private and quiet place, free of distraction.
For in person sessions, the office is located in the same building as Palmetto Primary Care but on the right side of the building. The sign on the door is for Manning Insurance and Safe Harbour Counseling. You can text upon arrival if the door is locked (864-) 808-0692 or come up stairs and have a seat in the waiting area at the top of the stairs.
What can I expect our first session?
The first time we meet, we will go over policies and confidentiality briefly, but the bulk of that first session is spent just getting to know what is going on and start figuring out what you really want to work on. I don't expect you to come in and share all you deepest secrets, don't worry. This is a comfortable place to explore at your pace. Please do have your insurance card and ID iwth you.
Can I use my Insurance?
I do accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and Lyra EAP. Insurance is not the route that works best for everyone. Some choose to pay out of pocket because it allows more privacy, does not require a mental health diagnosis, and allows them to have greater control over treatment. My rate is $150 per session. Therapy services are not shopping around for new shirt or someone to do our hair. Therapy is an investment in yourself and your future. So, there is a short term financial cost but there is also long term benefit.
