When you are ready to make an appointment at Restoring Balance Counseling, LLC in Jefferson, please contact Jeremy at (920) 674-5050. If you have questions you'd like answered before deciding if therapy is right for you or a loved one, please call or email at email@example.com. A personal and private email address is strongly encouraged to proceed in the process.
You are strongly encouraged to contact your insurance company before your first appointment to determine your benefits, identifying any deductibles and/or copays that you will be responsible for. Mental health services are not guaranteed to be a covered service by some insurance carriers. If you need assistance with any of this information, please let us know.
After you contacted Jeremy at (920) 674-5050, and he has verified insurance eligibility for services, and you have given an email address, he or one of the therapists will send a secure email to you, inviting you to obtain access to the Client Portal.
Through the portal, you will receive several documents and attachments. Documents need to be completed fully, e-signed, and returned to the clinic through the portal. Attachments should be viewed for reference and future use if necessary.
If you do not have email, forms can be mailed or downloaded from the FORMS/ PORTAL tab at the top of the page. HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE: at this time, Teletherapy is the main mode of service. Certain technology and environmental factors are necessary for services to be most effective. Please refer to the FORMS/PORTAL tab (DOWNLOADS) for additional information.
You and your assigned therapist will set up a time for your initial assessment. An email or text message will be give to you prior to the session, or the necessary link will have been given to you earlier. It will include: https://doxy.me/therapists-virtual-waiting-room-name. (PLEASE NOTE: this link will not take you to the virtual waiting room and is just being shown as an example.)
A portion of the session will involve reviewing paperwork to help ensure the information is still accurate, and that there is clear understanding of the services being provided, environmental and technology requirement, benefits and risk factors, confidentiality and safety, and a variety of other topics.
Feeling comfortable and having a "good fit" with your therapist is important for therapy to be successful for self-improvement, growth, and a more balanced life. The Initial Assessment is a time when you and the therapist begin the therapeutic relationship. If it does not "feel right" to you, or the therapist believes that he/she may not be the best fit for your needs, talk about it with the therapist. Remember, this process is about YOU and what YOU want and need from therapy.
An email or text message will be sent to you prior to the session, or the necessary link will have been given to you earlier. It will include: https://doxy.me/therapists-virtual-waiting-room-name.
A portion of every session may involve reviewing confidentiality and safety, and a variety of other topics.
At session 2 and moving forward, additional background and current struggles that bring you/your loved one to counseling will continue to be addressed, and rapport continued to build.
A Treatment Plan will be established at or prior to the 3rd session. This involves goals that are specific to you and /or your loved one. If not already identified, you and your therapist will identify the frequency of sessions (weekly, biweekly, 1time/ month, etc.). After completion of the plan, the document will be sent to you via the Client Portal for review, approval, and e-signature.
