Frequently Asked Questions
If I do not take your insurance, you have the option to pay the full fee out-of-pocket and then see if your insurance company will reimburse you for out-of-network providers. I will be happy to provide you with statements/invoices that many insurance companies require. And if you are denied coverage, we can fill out the necessary forms that they require the provider to complete for the appeals process.
My fees are $100 per individual session and $125 per couples' session. If you are using one of the insurances that I accept, you may have a lower copay, depending on your plan.
I accept credit cards, checks, and cash. I do require clients to have an up to date credit card on file to reserve appointment times.
Length of therapy can vary depending on your specific needs and circumstances. Some people come to therapy with a specific issue or concern, and brief solution-focused therapy may be the right fit. Other times, people come to therapy to explore deeper issues and might engage in therapy for several months or even years. Typically, I see the majority of my clients once a week, with some eventually transitioning to once every two weeks or even once a month for a mental “tune up”.
Each session typically lasts between 50 minutes and an hour.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please let me know via text, phone, or e-mail with at least 24 hours’ notice to avoid the late cancellation/no-show fee. This courtesy allows me to attempt to schedule another session during that time slot. Please be aware that insurance policies do not cover missed sessions, meaning that the entire appointment fee (not just your copay) must be paid out of pocket. If you do not cancel at least 24 hours prior to your session, unless such cancellation is due to emergency or illness, you will be billed for the entire cost of your scheduled appointment.
My office is located at 802 W. Center St. in Kyle, TX. The building is on the corner of Center St. and Wallace St., with a small parking area in the back.
Please park in the parking area in the back of the building. Once you enter through the back, there is a small waiting area. Please have a seat and I will come find you at our scheduled appointment time.
My typical office hours are between 9am - 6pm, Monday - Friday. If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent you from being available during those hours, please let me know and we can discuss other possible options.
To make your initial session go as smoothly as possible, please do the following:
- (If you are using insurance) E-mail me a copy of your insurance card, full name, and date of birth prior to your first session so that I can verify your benefits and determine your copay, if there is one.
- Go to the “Patient Forms” section on my website and review, print, and sign the Informed Consent Form, Notice of Privacy Practices, and the Cancellation Policy to bring with you for your first session. I will review this paperwork with you and answer any questions that you might have.
Christina Taylor, LPC, PLLC
I received my Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Austin Texas in 2008, then acquired my Masters in Counseling at St. Edward’s University in 2010. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas since 2012. Since then, I have 8 years combined experience of working with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings.
While working at a local residential treatment center as an individual and family therapist, I had the opportunity to provide therapy services to children and adolescents with anger management issues, developmental delays, ADHD, mood disorders, and other emotional and behavioral issues.
In 2014, I began working with a non-profit foster care and adoption organization, providing individual and family therapy services to families and at risk youth. I also have several years of Applied Behavioral Analysis training and have experience providing 1:1 therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Since expanding my career into the realm of private practice, I have especially enjoyed having the opportunity to provide therapeutic services to a wider array of clients, varying both in age and stage of life. In particular, I have found a passion in helping couples navigate through their journey toward a healthier, long-lasting relationship.
Feel free to take a look at the other pages on this site for more information on the services I offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
