Making an Appointment

An initial session can be scheduled by calling:
(412) 252-2450

Day and evening appointments are available. Cost of services, confidentiality issues, and possible insurance coverage, will be shared with you. Generally, an appointment can be scheduled within a week of your call.  In the case of an emergency, an appointment will be made sooner, if possible, or a referral to another professional or agency will be provided.


Most health insurance policies now include coverage for counseling and psychological services that is provided by a licensed professional counselor.  You may need to contact your insurance company to get approval or authorization for counseling/psychological services.
