How do I get started?
First, well done on deciding to begin therapy services! This is not an easy decision for many people and for that, we are honored you are considering our staff! Please browse our Staff and Services pages. Once you find a clinician and service you are interested in, please call our office at 248-474-4701 to inquire on availability. We must verify 1) the clinician you wish to work with is currently accepting clients, and 2) can accept your insurance or develop a private pay/sliding fee scale.
After you are assigned a clinician, our admin team will send an electronic intake packet containing consent forms, insurance release, credit card authorization, HIPAA notifications, and other documents pertaining to care with Samaritan Counseling Center.
Your first appointment is scheduled by our admin team and appointments thereafter are scheduled between you and your clinician. Your clinician is instructed to reach out to you prior to your appointment to confirm how the teletherapy intake appointment will occur (using HIPAA-compliant software and encryption to ensure confidentiality). Some forms of tele-conference that our clinicians are using include Doxy.me, Signal App, Sessions through PsychologyToday, and other platforms at the clinician's discretion.
