Terms of Service
Our therapists are licensed professional counselors, interns, and psychologists engaged in providing quality mental health care services to clients with a biblical foundation.
The charge for your sessions is $135.00 for the initial session and $110.00/hr.for all subsequent sessions. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. I accept personal checks and cash and major credit cards. In some cases, individuals may need assistance, but cannot afford this rate. Please contact our office to discuss your unique situation. We might be able to adjust the fees, depending upon your financial circumstances.
Payment for Services
Bob Good is a Provider for Blue Cross, Aetna, Magellan, and Value Options. Elgibility and Benefits/Pre-certification with the insurance companies must first be done for those clients wishing to use their medical/behavioral health plan. Although it is the goal of the undersigned therapist to protect the confidentiality of your records, there may be times when disclosure of your records or testimony will be compelled by law. Confidentiality and exceptions to confidentiality are discussed below. In the event disclosure of your records or testimony is required by law, you will be responsible for and shall pay the costs involved in producing the records and the therapist's normal hourly rate for time involved in preparing for and giving testimony. Such payments are to be made at the time or prior to the time the therapist renders the services.
Mental Health Services
While it may not be easy to seek help from a mental health professional, it is hoped that through therapy you will change in the following ways: 1) gain greater insight into your situation and feelings, 2) develop expanded conceptualizations of your life, relationships, circumstances, and future; 3) move toward resolving your concerns; and, 4) forge a life plan that promotes greater realization of your human potential, happiness, and success. As your therapist, using my knowledge of human development and behavior, human change process, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I will make observations about situations as well as suggestions for new ways to approach them. It will be important for you to explore your own feelings and thoughts and to try new approaches in order for change to occur. You may bring other family members to a therapy session if you feel it would be helpful or if recommended by your therapist.
Appointments are made by calling 214-642-8737 Monday through Saturday between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Please call to cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance, or you will be charged for the missed appointment. Third-party payments will not usually cover or reimburse for missed appointments.
If you experience a life threatening emergency please go to your
nearest Emergency Room or call 911.
Number of Visits
The number of sessions depends on many factors and will be assessed and discussed by the therapist.
Length of Visits
Therapy sessions are 45-50 minutes in length but may take longer for testing assessment.
Your relationship with the therapist is a professional and therapeutic relationship. In order to preserve this relationship and abide by the ethical standards of the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors (§681.32 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 681), it is imperative that the therapist refrain from any other type of relationship with you. Personal and/or business relationships undermine the effectiveness of the therapeutic relationship. Gifts, bartering, and trading services are not appropriate and should not be shared between you and the therapist.
Cancellations must be received at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment; otherwise YOU will be charged the customary fee for that missed appointment. You are responsible for calling to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
