Therapist specializes in trauma, anxiety, working with caregivers of those with autism and ADHD, those affected by a parent with narcissism, cult survivors and adults with high functioning autism.

Please note that I work with clients clinically not forensically or for child custody or other legal proceedings. I do not provide clinical letters. I also do not work with couples.

I do not write letters for clients for other providers, for emotional support animals or for court/legal issues

Jeanine does not do therapy by text or email. CCTFW does not offer emergency psychological services. Email exchanges are for: 1) therapist providing material resourcing, 2) client submission of requested material and 3) setting up and cancelling appointments.  Therapist’s email is encrypted, however, the client’s side may not not be and confidentiality needs should always be taken into consideration.

Process for Beginning:

Step 1) Email Jeanine for a brief consultation to see if CCTFW is a good fit for you and to see if CCTFW is accepting new clients.

Step 2) Complete the Welcome packet in its entirety and email or mail the packet back within two weeks of the consultation. If you have insurance, please send a front and back copy of your insurance card.

Step 3) Once received the packet will be reviewed. Therapist will contact you to schedule an appointment. Reminders will be generated before appointments via email.

Step 4) Sessions will take place on a HIPAA compliant platform. Simply put into the browser.

Good Faith Estimate (No Surprises Act) for Superbill or Private Pay Clients

If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill. You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available. You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill. There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
