Announcement icon I have been vaccinated twice with the Moderna vaccine. Patients are required to ware masks if they have not been vaccinated.
I provide three types of service. Psychotherapy/Mental Health Counseling, Testing & Evaluation, and Forensic Evaluation. First, you can count on my diverse training and skills to match counseling modalities to meet your specific needs. Secondly, sometimes people need only a mental health evaluation/testing to help them move forward with making mental health decisions without seeing me as a psychotherapist. Third, a Forensic Evaluation, also called Mental Health Assessment, is a more formal process that may help you mediate, prepare for court, or settle out of court, and offers diagnoses & treatment recommendations.
Call today to schedule for a psychotherapy session as I am taking new patients. If you wish to learn more about Testing & Evaluation or Forensic Evaluation, call to schedule a consultation to determine if either is something you will benefit from.
The foundation of great psychotherapy is a strong therapist-patient relationship. The trust bond between therapist-patient is key in building new skills and healing the patient and a skilled professional. Evaluation scientifically affirms a diagnosis, effective treatment along with an experienced clinical opinion. Online Telehealth is Available!

Scott Whitmer Forensic Evaluator Psychotherapist's Groups

Cash Paying Customers (cash, credit, debit)

Paying cash/credit/debit has its advantages and we can talk about that. I have chosen to be an out-of-network practitioner because insurance carriers create too many barriers for payment to the provider. I will provide you a superbill/invoice for you to get reimbursed by your insurance carrier if they offer reimbursement. It is advised you check with the insurance carrier policy on this first.
