Counseling Policies and Processes:
Entering into a therapeutic relationship with a counseling professional requires an establishment of trust. When you begin therapy, you are committing your time, money and emotional energy and it is important to fully understand what that commitment will entail. Included below is a summary of the policies and processes that guide your work through this process
1. Professional Background:
I am currently working on becoming fully licensed in Marriage and Family Therapy with the Utah Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing, which allows me to practice counseling independently in Utah. I have worked in the counseling field since 2013 and my scope of practice includes sexual addiction counseling/coaching for individuals and counseling/coaching for sexual issues with adolescents. I also work with clients needing grief counseling, divorce and divorce adjustment issues depression/anxiety and spirituality. Additionally, I finished certification requirements to become an Associate Sexual Addiction Therapist with the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals and have finished an externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy. I worked in the medical field for many years as a Spanish Medical Interpreter at Vanderbilt Medical Center. I have been a clinician with Life Changing Services since 2013 running multiple groups sessions for adolescent young men, young single adult men and older/married men.
Since clients are seen by appointment only, unless an emergency requires an immediate appointment, this appointment time is reserved specifically for you. If it is necessary for you to cancel an appointment, notice of cancellation must be made at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time or you will be billed or charged for the set appointment fee. If a third party is paying for your therapy and you no show or do not cancel 24 hours prior to your appointment, you (the client) will be responsible for the full fee through credit card. If arrangements have been made for an alternate fee and you no show or do not cancel 24 hours prior to your appointment, you will be responsible for the full fee. Cancellation of a scheduled appointment will be done via email or text.
If you are experiencing a mental health emergency and cannot reach us, please go directly to your nearest emergency room for assistance or call the Utah Crisis Line at 801-587-3000, or the National Help Line at 1-800-273-8255.
3. Fees and Payments for Counseling Services:
Fees for counseling services are $150 for a 50-minute session with individuals and couples. All fees are due at time of service and will be charged via credit/debit card. Health insurance is NOT accepted as part of our practice, only private pay. Payment for special circumstances such as services rendered for court-ordered appearances/consulting will be $1,500 per day. Gifts cannot be accepted.
Utah State laws and ethical requirements of the State Boards indicate that what we discuss in our private counseling sessions is privileged communication, meaning that you as the client control the release of this information to a third party. There are several limits to confidentiality that involve the required release of information in order to keep you and/or others safe from harm. These limits include: clear and imminent danger to self or others; suspected child or elder abuse; a direct court order by a judge ordering me to release records or appear in court to testify. If it would benefit you in your counseling progress, you may be asked to sign a release of information to allow further discussion of pertinent information with your primary healthcare professional or other key providers in your life (ie: a psychiatrist or a previous counselor).
5. HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices:
Included with this initial introductory paperwork, you should have received a copy of the HIPAA document. I am required by law to provide this to you and to secure your signature. If you should have any questions about this document, please do not hesitate to ask me for clarification.
6. Benefits and Risks of Counseling:
Counseling can be of great benefit to a client who fully commits to being open and honest in the counseling relationship. It requires the client to come to the table with their own personal goals for counseling. I cannot create change in your life; you are the change agent in your own life. I cannot guarantee a specific outcome from our time together. Clients are ultimately responsible for their own growth and direction in counseling. Counseling also has risks that may include the experience of intense and unwanted feelings, including sadness, fear, anger, guilt or anxiety. It is important to remember that these feelings may be natural and normal and are an important part of the counseling process. Other risks of counseling may include: facing unpleasant thoughts and beliefs, increased awareness of feelings, values and experiences, and recalling unpleasant life events. I am available to discuss any of your problems or possible side effects of our work together. Also, during our counseling sessions, we may discuss additional resources or activities that added to counseling may help further your change and growth. These may include referrals to a PCP for medication evaluation, directions for a specific activity plan of exercise, referrals to a nutritionist, etc. Wellness comes from whole body health that should include an emphasis on mind, body and spirit. After we have met to discuss your concerns, we will create a plan that is individualized to your own goals and desires for counseling outcomes.
7. Private Practice:
Please feel free to discuss with me any of the policies and processes outlined above. It is important that you clearly understand your rights and responsibilities when entering into a counseling relationship.
8. Online Counseling / Coaching:
It is my (the client’s) understanding that as a client of Taylor Lyman, LLC., there is a possibility that my Service Provider may live in a different state than I do. I understand that some states’ professional boards require the client to visit the service provider in their home state. I have worked hard to find a quality service provider for my needs, but I/we do not live and work in the same state. I am not in a position to travel regularly or move my family to the same state as my service provider. I understand that I may be meeting with my service provider primarily via confidential webcam services or phone calls because of the distance and I am okay with that. If it ever becomes an issue, I would like to evoke my “Client Determination” rights and I would like my case to be treated as if I am visiting with my service provider in person in their office in their state of licensure. I do not want distance to disrupt the opportunity for quality services when we have access to such effective technology.
