Appointments and General Information

Please call 817-479-9363 to set up an initial appointment. The initial appointment is a consultation only and does not guarantee continued care; that decision will be made by both parties during the consultation.

First appointments are generally 60 minutes long.

Follow up appointments are either 20-25 minutes (short visit) or 45-50 minutes (full visit), depending on your preference. These follow up visits are medication management visits with supportive psychotherapy provided as well. I am not currently accepting new psychotherapy patients (whether or not medication is a component of treatment or not). If therapy is felt to be needed, I will refer you to a therapist I think will be a good fit for both your personality and your problem.

I do not accept insurance directly. I will provide you with an invoice that has the information generally needed to file with your insurance for out-of-network reimbursement. You should check with your insurance carrier to determine what they will pay, as I will be considered an ‘out-of-network’ provider. Payment is expected at the time of service.

My schedule is more similar to a therapist’s schedule than a traditional medical doctor. I anticipate starting and ending our appointments at the time scheduled. Occasionally an emergency with another patient may delay our meeting time, but this would be rare.
