Suzanne Balka, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
**(Update 2-1-24) I am currently accepting new clients at this time and would be happy to speak with you (individuals, 18+)! If you are interested in becoming a new client, please reach out below and I will contact you ASAP (within a business day) for a quick 10-15 minute phone consultation to see if I would be the right fit, answer questions, discuss scheduling, etc. If there is a best time to reach you, please do indicate that in the message. I can't wait to connect with you!**
-----The online client portal is temporarily closed to anonymous new client sign up, if you are interested in becoming a new patient, please click the link below to request a call back. If you are an existing patient who would like to access the portal, please visit: jituzu.com and have your username and password ready. Thank you!
I am offering both in-person and/or online tele-mental health sessions (virtual video-based sessions). If you are interested in meeting virtually, please check with your insurance carrier before booking to see if telemental-health is a covered service for you (it most likely will be, but still needs to be confirmed). You will need to have access to a desktop computer, laptop, I-pad or mobile device, an internet connection with good bandwidth, an integrated or external microphone, and an integrated or external web-camera. Copays and fees are the same for video therapy sessions as they are for in-person sessions. Please do check with your insurance carrier for more details on your mental/behavioral health benefits. Please contact us with any questions.
TO ALL PROSPECTIVE NEW CLIENTS:
Current available clinical hours are listed under 'Office Hours' to the right. Clients are always provided the highest standard of personalized care. With this in mind, scheduling availability is currently at about 1 week (possibly 2) wait time between time of scheduling and the intake appointment. This also allows time to complete some online paperwork prior to the first appointment.
Suzanne is an in-network provider with the below listed insurance panels. Please verify mental health coverage with your insurance carrier prior to the first visit.
