Here, you can text with your therapist without any commitment to sessions. This subscription service allows you access to your therapist through messaging. You can ask questions, explain your stressors and concerns, and receive support and feedback like you might during regular sessions, but at a fraction of the cost, and conveniently from wherever you are. This is not a crisis service, and is not suitable for anyone in need of immediate intervention or crisis support.
If you are not ready to commit to weekly sessions but want to make some changes and have professional confidential and support, try texting with me! Subscribe to my personalized support platform for 100.00$ a month. This allows me to make time in my schedule to support you through writing, voice recordings, creating weekly support prompts and life changing behavioral hacks. Every week, I will send you something different, such as guided reflections, ideas for new skills to master to improve your life, habits and thought patterns to change your behavior and feeling-states, and more. I will send you journal or letter-writing prompts that will be thought provoking and inspire things like self-awareness, motivation, connection, belonging, acceptance, and compassion. With the subscription, you will be able to text me throughout your week with reflections, questions, thoughts, confessions, or tell me about your stress, anxiety, worry, sadness or grief, just like you would in therapy sessions. After your first message of the month (which is already included in your monthly subscription) each following message exchange will be an additional 3.00$, and encourage you to grow, develop, and feel better while offering a combination of suggestions, insight, education, validation and compassion, just like you might experience in therapy. Your therapist will determine when a message thread is completed and send you a "message thread complete" note, so that you know that continuing on will result in a new thread and therefore, new charge. On the weeks that you don't feel the need to reach out and message, you will still receive your prompts and messages from me, at no additional charge to your subscription. To start your subscription with me, you will pay for this service and then set up a "Text With Katie appointment" on my calendar. This will allow you to take a quick assessment and sign my informed consent. These help me to get to know you better and make sure that text/ virtual messaging therapy is the right fit for you. Once you fill these out, and I have approved you (usually one business day), you will receive a welcome text asking you to sign up for Spruce (a secure messaging app on your phone), and you can begin messaging me. You can cancel or pause at any time, if you cancel during a month that you've already been charged for, you will still have access to your services until that billing cycle completes. If at any time you want added support, you can request to schedule an appointment for a therapy session in person or virtually, and I will schedule you to see myself or provide you with thoughtful referrals as needed. This is for California residents only, and you must be eighteen or older. This service is not suitable for those suffering from suicidal or homicidal ideation, self harm, active addiction or immediate crisis'.
