I chose TJ Walsh Counseling after carefully reviewing a select number of therapists I found either through my doctor's referral or my own research. TJ is someone I knew prior to entering a therapist-client relationship, so part of me felt secure with that, but upon entering this new experience, we put our former knowledge aside and started fresh. TJ is very attentive and listens closely which helped him give me a synopsis of what I was saying to him. I felt confident that he truly was understanding what I was articulating and not once did he shame me or tell me I was wrong in my emotions. His friendly demeanor made it easy to just open up and he was very willing to explore multiple ways to help me help myself. He was very thorough and concise with providing information I needed to know. I have name-dropped him to a few friends already who expressed a need for a therapist and will continue to do so based on my positive experience.Apr 4, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am fee-for-service, which means that I do not accept insurances. However, some insurance plans may reimburse you for my services as an out-of-network provider. My standard rate for counseling is $110 per session. However, I do have a sliding scale, so if you have a financial concern please let me know and we can discuss a rate that works for both of us. ABOUT FEE-FOR-SERVICE COUNSELING: Fee-for-Service Counseling may be a great option for you when you find a therapist you'd like to work with, yet he or she is not in-network with your insurance. Although this means a greater financial commitment from you, it does come with several benefits that might be worth the additional out-of-pocket expense. By choosing fee-for-service counseling, you are putting yourself in control of your treatment by being able to choose the therapist you want to see instead of being placed on a waiting list, which many in-network providers utilize. You also have the benefit of receiving higher quality care, as the counselor is not dictated by additional time-consuming insurance documentation. The minimal reporting to outside sources also provides a greater level of privacy and confidentiality when dealing with your protected healthcare information. Another option to consider with fee-for-service counseling is that of out-of-network benefits. Not all insurance plans have this benefit, however plans which do provide this coverage can often make counseling just as affordable as seeing an in-network provider. You can find out whether your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits simply by calling the customer service number on your insurance card and following the prompts to learn your benefit information from the automated system. I trust this information is helpful to you and ask that you give me a call if you would like more information on whether or not I am the best fit for you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I strive for sessions to be a safe and welcoming time for you to explore and process whatever is going on. We will also work together to develop helpful coping tools to get you through the day if that's what you need. The time is yours, I'm there to help guide you and process with you.
