How I See things...
(My Clinical Orientation)
I am a Marriage & Family Systems oriented therapist, which means that I look through the lens of identifying patterns rather than solely the presenting issue, problem or person. Systems Therapists are trained to understand the context of individual, that is - Family, Community, Society, Culture, etc. No one lives in a vacuum.
Marriage & Family Therapists are mental health professionals licensed to diagnose and treat mental/emotional disorders practicing with the theoretical orientation toward cultural/family origins.

IT'S ALL ABOUT ACCOUNTABILITY! It is my experience that we are always growing professionally and personally. Although it might be ethical to have have a solid layer of clinical support along the career, the added benefit is it can be particularly helpful for therapists to have support around navigating resonances with clients and assessing "self of the therapist" and learning about personal strengths and weaknesses. My supervision style is collaborative, integrative, respectful, and honest...
Good Faith Estimate Information
The No Surprises Act is geared towards protecting patients in hospitals from getting a surprise charges for services from providers out of your insurance network. If you are a private pay client in therapy a "Good Faith Estimate" will be provided also, as mental health services fall under medical care. Here are some points in the new act that might be helpful to know...
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a medical plan or have coverage or eligible for a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your rights to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
