Likely you came to our website by referral—from a friend, family member, or maybe your doctor. Or maybe you were searching for mental health or substance use counseling on Google. Both are great options. It can be very comforting to get a referral from a trusted source. And the internet can provide you with a large list of choices and reviews, especially if you’re looking for something specific, like telehealth.
Okay, so you’re ready to make an appointment!
Be sure to:
- Share why you’re calling—why you’re seeking therapy—and if you have any request for a provider, location, specialty, etc.
- Have your insurance information handy. Or, if you would like to explore your options with sliding scale or would like help signing up for insurance with a MN Navigator, ask!
