New Clients/FAQ

Let’s get in touch

It is great to hear from you! I  am  excited  you  found  this  page,  and  look  forward  to  developing  a  strong  working  relationship  with  you (and/or  your  family).  

For  fastest scheduling  for  new  clients,  email/text  me  (jarrod@prestontrailcounseling.com or  469.278.6557)   your  name,  child’s  name  (if  applicable)  and  best  email,  and  I  will  send  my  new  client  paperwork  to  you  ASAP.  Look  for  email  from  Simple  Practice.  Once  the  paperwork  is  filled  out,  I  will  connect  you  with  my  scheduling  portal.  For court involved families, either pre, current or post litigation, I have a highly structured and detailed process for the family system. Please contact me for more details at my email (jarrod@prestontrailcounseling.com).  Please  read  over  my  FAQ  below,  since  many  questions  are  answered  here.       

For child  and  adolescent  new  clients, my process is to meet with parents first for an intake initial appointment, where I hear more concerns and go over developmental history and social/emotional challenges. We then agree on a plan for your family from that first meeting . I take a family systems approach in working with children and teens. I always work alongside the parents for brainstorming, education and progress updates. I usually meet with a family weekly at first, then space out as rapport is built and goals are being met.   

For adult/college aged counseling, my  process  is  to  create a plan based on the presenting concern  of the adult. For college  aged  students,  I  also  work  alongside  parents  in  the  treatment  plan  as  needed.  

::AVAILABILITY::

My  hours  are  8:15-  5  pm  on  MW,  8:15-8:15  on  T/TH,  and  8:15-5:45  on  FRI.  I  work  a  few  Saturdays  each  month  as  well.  Please  note,  appointments  are  scheduled  through  my  online  portal.  I  will  always  do  my  best  to  find  a  time  that  works  best  for  your  family,  but  do  have  LIMITED  afternoon/evening/Saturday  appointments.  Please  consider  your  level  of  flexibility for  consistent  sessions  before  scheduling  the  first  meeting.  

::COST::

My counseling rate is $225 per session. 

I am out of network on insurance- but I can “courtesy“  file for you  for  any  counseling  appointments  and have the insurance reimbursement sent directly to you. Certain restrictions apply.
