Some providers (very few in Leon County) offer a free consult; you should contact the provider beforehand if you are seeking a free consultation to determine if these are an option.  You will want to find out what format the free consult is offered (if it is face to face, phone, or video for example) and to find out  how long they last (30 minutes, 50 minutes, an actual full hour).


Free consults are no longer being offered at this practice due to cost factors and due to a very large caseload.   The practice of LaRose offered free consults from April of 2005—to June of 2017, however, with  ongoing fluctuations in dealing with third party payors, and a growing clientele the free consult was discontinued.


The same services that were offered during the former free consult still continue to be offered, it’s just that now the initial session incurs a fee.  Plus, you’ll have more treatment options to discuss now, than at any other time in the history of this practice (and possibly in the history of traditional and conventional mental health services delivery).  Please, read on …. 


Your initial consultation now includes more self pay options.  Besides traditional in office therapy services, the practice is adding an up and coming concierge services model! 


In your initial session, I will review all of the digital information you provide when you schedule online using the HIPAA compliant digital server; the initial session will cover a wealth of information about therapy services, legal considerations, billing, and it will focus intently on why you are seeking help, what strengths you have, and how to move to independence (in the absence of help). 


We still can bill your insurance, that is if they process electronically through our same national gateway, or we can generate the paper claim for you to send (at the time of your session).  This will be discussed during the initial consultation.


Suggestions about ways to improve and live a better, healthier life will be a key, along with a written and comprehensive treatment plan to do so (generated electronically, in the server, and available for your review and approval at a follow-up session).  Whether you choose concierge services, or traditional, you’ll start getting better here—sooner!  Besides, since you control the scheduling, you’re not going to feel pressured to be seen—meaning you’ll likely spend less time and money in my office—and more time and money in your life! 


Plus, unique to this practice is the client side access to the entire practice —- digitally available to you 24 hours a day!  Services offered in the secure server (24 hour secure journaling, video and chat sessions, secure emailing, sharing files, scheduling and canceling appointments, reminders, billing and payments, and the like) are also discussed in the initial consult. You’ll have full online access to the practice digitally—24 hours a day–beginning now if you wish


The initial session  includes assessment, diagnosis (if applicable), treatment planning, and a recommendation of where to begin.  Treatment options, from the concierge model, to Rapid Resolution and Clinical Hypnosis, to traditional talk therapy in the office, all will be discussed, according to your preferences (selected as you set up your appointment online). 


In some cases, your insurance can still be billed by the practice - for the initial and all other sessions, that is if your insurance is not accepted and if it offers an out of network benefit.  In this latter case you would pay for the session and we may still be able to bill insurance—and if your benefit includes it, then they will reimburse you. or mental health concerns, and simply would like to ask a professional some questions face to face, take a few moments to see why a free consultation may help you decide what is best.  The free consultation lasts up to one hour allowing you to get to know the practice, the approach, and the treatment ideas that may help (or if treatment is needed at all).  Here’s more as you consider mental health services.  You can schedule 24/7, right here!


For Providers Wishing to Join the Online Practice Business Model …..


For providers of mental health and interns seeking licensure supervision, you’ll be able to choose these options when scheduling as well!  You are encouraged to call first to talk about how to use the server if you are not becoming a client to the practice.
