Schedule today! Accepting new clients. In-network with many insurance companies and Medicaid. First, I would like to take a moment to applaud you for taking this difficult first step in the change process towards a healthier more positive you. Finding the right person to help you make these positive changes can be challenging. I am here to be your change facilitator, your partner for becoming the person you want to be. If you’re looking to meet your potential, deal with a crisis, address relationship issues, mental health issues, addiction, depression, anxiety, self-esteem/image issues and more I can help.
I believe in a client centered approach. This is where we work together to find treatment that works best for you. You are the expert on you! Now here is where I ask you to step out of your comfort zone. Telehealth/teletherapy is new, but an exciting way to meet your mental health needs. Teletherapy gives you the flexibility and privacy of therapy on your
terms, at your comfort level and from any location. No more driving to the office or trying to fit in an appointment. Why not give it a try? What do you have to lose? I offer a free 15 min consultation. I look forward to hearing from you and creating your own personalized therapy approach together. Lets help you achieve your best! Dotson Therapy . com
