Greetings and Happy New Year!
This first full week of 2020 comes with several big changes to Counseling Evolved that I’m overjoyed to share with everyone today.
First and foremost, in reflecting on my own personal, career, and family goals I have made the decision to move from juggling two jobs to focusing on my work at Counseling Evolved full-time. Being able to do this is the realization of a dream that I have had for years and a tremendous source of pride and thankfulness for those in my own life who support me – my partner, my mentors, my friends, and those who trust me to assist them through often difficult parts of their lives.
Days and hours are now expanded with availability from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday thru Friday and 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM Saturday with after-hours appointments available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. With this expansion in hours, clients will be able to self-schedule online via Theranest client portal during daytime hours given 24 hour notice. If an appointment is needed on the same day, it may still be available, just call or text.
I am in the process of credentialing with insurance companies. I am currently able to accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and CIGNA. Work is being done to expand this, but it is a slow process.
The final announcement, but not likely the final change in 2020 is that counseling and coaching services will also be available via video. This secure service will be facilitated through Theranest, the program that I use for scheduling and record-keeping. Whether or not a client’s insurance will compensate for this service depends on the plan’s covered services. All clients being treated via tele-health must be located within the State of Texas due to current licensing laws.
Looking forward to a wonderful 2020!
