Concierge Addiction Treatment
Providing holistic, integrated therapy from Chicago’s Only Board-Certified Psychologist specializing in Addiction Treatment
Concierge therapy is an exclusive service that is only offered to a limited number of individuals at a time; this allows me to work deeply with each person and provide better client care. This also allows each discerning individual to access next level care with numerous perks that traditional therapy does not afford. I am able to meet with concierge clients multiple times per week to help them make significant progress on recovery goals.
If your status, lifestyle, or employment do not allow you to seek out traditional addiction treatment services in a crowded therapy office or treatment facility, concierge treatment is for you. I provide concierge treatment to the most elite members of society. No busy waiting room and no insurance records means no concerns about your privacy being violated. Concierge therapy at its best, I provide on-call, in-home and mobile therapy allowing you to remain in the comfort of your own home while working on your personal addiction recovery goals.
Since I can come to your home or private location of your choice (by request) it eliminates travel to and from office visits, therapy is provided in familiar surroundings which often enhances the therapeutic process. A more “private” setting can provide additional peace of mind.
Imagine at anytime, anywhere, a trusted Board-Certified Psychologist could be reached when you had an unexpected problem or crisis; when a situation arose that demanded your immediate attention or required you to make an important decision immediately; when you have the need for immediate interventions for behavioral problems at home; or simply because you needed to get something off your chest.
Imagine this person knows your strengths and weaknesses, your beliefs and principles, rituals and practices, identity and community, and has truly only your best interests and deepest concerns at heart.
You will be able to consult with me by telephone, even if you don’t have an appointment. If I am in session when you call, you can expect me to call you back as soon as I am available (even during evening and weekend hours).
You will be able to engage in therapeutic sessions via HIPAA protected online video counseling platform for your convenience. You are provided with a HIPAA protected messaging account (confidential email system) so I can reply to all messages within 24 hours or less. Since I receive messages by both computer and smart phone, message responses are often very prompt.
A therapist’s schedule can easily become very full, especially during popular time slots. For clients with busy schedules themselves, it can become a struggle just to find a time that works. Concierge clients benefit from my extended hours of operations and weekend appointments. Concierge Clients also enjoy priority appointment scheduling in peak hours (7:30a.m. to 9:00a.m. and 4:00p.m. to 6:00p.m.)
As a concierge client, if you are experiencing an immediate need to be seen, I will find a same-day or next-day appointment time for you. If you have been in counseling, you know that discussions do not always fit within the customary 45-minute session time. I hate to watch the clock as much as you do! I will provide occasional grace time during sessions for members when extra time is needed to finish a discussion.
Concierge therapy is the epitome of individualized, custom-fit services. Insurance won’t dictate how many sessions you can have, and I won’t use a “one size fits all” approach to address your needs; our partnership will always reflect what you need in that moment. Some sessions you may want to gain some insight into your life. Other times, you may need an outsider perspective to help you problem-solve. Or perhaps you’re having an unusually bad day and need a caring person to lend a listening ear. Your sessions can be anything you need them to be.
You will never waste precious time battling traffic or dealing with frustrating parking situations. I will meet you in your home, office, or other convenient and comfortable location. Don’t have an hour to meet or going out of town? We can do sessions via phone or video conference instead.
Use your monthly package’s hours however you see fit, whenever you want. No outside entity will dictate how long or how frequent your sessions should be. Also, if you have a schedule that changes frequently, see me on different days and times each week without any hassle.
More Quality Time
Typical therapy sessions are 45 to 50 minutes in length. With me, you will always get a full 60-minute hour (or 90 minutes when needed). Additionally, because I purposefully limit how many individuals I see at a time, I’m able to spend time outside of session reflecting on your case and staying current with the field of psychology; this enables me to bring the highest quality work into our sessions together.
Always get a response from me directly! I will answer all calls and emails personally. No need to deal with receptionists, answering services, or anyone who doesn’t know you and your needs.
Did you know that insurance companies require certain diagnoses in order to authorize treatment? Bypass getting a label that will follow you and avoid sharing your health information with a health insurance organization or other entity. This keeps our work especially private and confidential. Also, by having me come to you, you can avoid bumping into others when you’re feeling at your most vulnerable.
