New Clients

Appointments

To inquire about services or to schedule your first appointment in Alex’s Lone Tree counseling office, please call 720.316.7771 or e-mail alex@alexanderavila.com. You can check scheduling availability in advance by entering “Avila” or “Relationship Institute” at www.schedulicity.com. On that Web site you can also set up an account to schedule and modify future sessions.

Forms
If you have access to a printer, you may print and complete the appropriate (PDF) forms and bring them to your first counseling appointment.
For your first private counseling appointment, you will need to complete appropriate forms. Each new person coming into counseling must fill out the 6 pages of New Client Forms. Couples must also bring one Couple Therapy Policy that they sign together.
These forms will be reviewed and must be signed in the first session. An additional form listing Alex’s education, training, certifications and counseling areas of focus will be provided during the first visit.
Fees
Alex’s current fees are $125 per 50-minute clinical hour session for individuals and couples and $190 per 80-minute session for individuals and couples. Intensive sessions lasting one hour and fifty minutes and two hours and fifty minutes are also prorated. Cash, check, and Visa, Mastercard, and Discover cards are accepted.
Insurance
Many insurance plans reimburse for some portion of psychotherapy, therapy, or counseling. At this time Alex does not deal directly with insurance companies. However, you can be provided a detailed receipt for counseling services to submit to your insurance company. Check with your insurance provider to learn about your specific plan benefits.
It is important to know that using insurance to pay for psychotherapy limits the privacy and confidentiality of counseling treatment and documentation.Also, insurance plans nearly always require a mental health diagnosis that remains on one’s permanent medical record. Many insurance plans do not cover couple or marriage counseling.

Health Savings Account (HSA) Benefits
Applying funds from your Health Spending Account, Health Savings Account (HSA), or Flexible Spending Account can save you money. Check with your human resources department or health insurance provider to learn if you are eligible for partial or tax-free reimbursement for psychotherapist or counselor services or treatment for your specific issue.
