Perspective.

I wanted a new perspective on my life.

“I’ve never known a better counselor. As a heterosexual person I initially sought Troy for just a few sessions to better understand gender identity and sexual orientation issues relative to myself, friends and church, since Troy’s reputation precedes him in these areas. 

I quickly discovered, however, that he would eagerly listen and thoughtfully help with all hurts and fears to include compulsive behaviors, professional issues,  goals,  family issues, dating and being true to who I am.  

The few sessions turned into long-term life-changing therapy. His manner, expertise, and personality are superb, and he possesses incredibly wide-ranging empathy and wisdom.  I have never conversed with someone so flexible, intelligent and engaged as Troy.

Log in to your client portal to see all available sessions and reserve the one that is best for you. Your session is automatically reserved for you, and I will send you an email confirming that I’ve seen it on my calendar.

Existing clients have control over their own session schedule. There is no need to call, text, or email to reserve or change a session. 

New clients can schedule a 15 minute consultation online as well.

As a result of Covid-19, I have permanently closed my physical office.  All sessions are now conducted by phone or through Telehealth video sessions. 

Telehealth is a virtual platform incorporated into my Electronic Health Record and Client Portal. Telehealth is a product of SimplePractice.

Through audio and video over the internet, we can meet on-the-go from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device – it’s your choice!

Telehealth allows us to connect anywhere with secure and convenient appointments that save you time and hassle. There’s no need to deal with traffic when you can schedule and attend your appointments directly from a laptop or mobile device.

Things You Ought to know.

My session rate is $129.00 for hour long appointments.  If you need a break on the fee, let’s talk about it when you schedule your free consultation.

I don’t accept insurance.  I will provide you with the appropriate documentation you need to submit claims directly to your insurance carrier.  Reimbursement will be made directly to you.

Billing is automated.  The HIPAA compliant client portal is secure enough to manage electronic payments for sessions.  Payments are typically charged to the card on file the evening of a session. Occasionally, if the system is not able to process payment because of an invalid card, payment may be delayed.  

95% of sessions begin right on time.  It’s rare that I have to start a session late or reschedule on late notice.  When you select your session in the client portal or we schedule it together, it’s a safe bet that it’s gonna happen on the day, at the time, and on time.
