FAQ

What should I expect?
Your visit to Pinnacle of Purpose will resemble other appointments you’ve had in the past. When you enter the office, you will be greeted by a receptionist. The receptionist will have you complete paperwork if you have not done so prior to your arrival. If you are unsure of how to answer some of the questions, you can wait until our visit to discuss. Once you have a good understanding of the questions asked and have completed your paperwork, we will dive into what brought you to therapy. I will ask questions about your relationships (children, marriage, family and/or friends) and your career. You will have an opportunity to understand my therapy style to ensure we are a good fit (ideally this should occur during your FREE consultation); however, if you need, to clarify there will definitely be opportunity for discussion. We will then move to clearly defining therapy goals, including therapy focus, length and therapy methods.

During our time together, you will be asked to do “homework”. The purpose of these assignments is for you to incorporate what we discuss in therapy into your everyday life and create opportunity for reflection in between our time together.

What other services does Pinnacle of Purpose provide to the community?
Pinnacle of Purpose is a counseling agency; therefore there are opportunities for group therapy.

I am available for presentations, workshops and other educational forums. Call me to discuss your company needs.

What if I need to cancel?
Life happens! However, if you have to cancel your appointment please do so 24 hours in advance. Otherwise you will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee.

What if I am experiencing financial hardship?
There is opportunity to participate in therapy services based on a sliding scale. Please ask about sliding scale fee and required documents.

Can you  prescribe medication?
No. During our time together if we feel medication is necessary, I will refer you to a psychiatrist or your primary care physician. If your psychiatrist or primary care physician feels it is appropriate to prescribe medication, I ask that you provide written permission for me to speak with your psychiatrist or primary care physician. This will ensure the best treatment plan possible.

Will my information be kept confidential?
Yes. The therapeutic relationship is built on trust, professionalism and confidentiality. However, I am obligated to disclose if 1) there is immediate threat of harm to oneself or others, 2) suspicion of child or elder abuse; and/or,3) in the case of court subpoena.
