Justin Gardner LPC-S
I obtained my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Transpersonal Psychology in 1999 from John F. Kennedy University's Graduate School for Holistic Studies. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Approved Clinical Supervisor in the state of Texas, license # 63455.
I've pursued a variety of mindfulness and spiritual practices since 1993.
Although I currently focus on working with adults only, the clients I've worked with have ranged in age from 4 to the late 70's, come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ethnicities and belief systems, and their presenting concerns have included:
personal and spiritual growth
grief and trauma
life purpose, path, career
depression and anxiety
chronic and terminal illness
care giving concerns
Prior to spending the last 6 years in full time private practice, I worked in a variety of settings in addition to my then part time private practice including The University of Texas at Austin's Counseling and Mental Health Center; Resources for Living and Aetna Employee Assistance Program; The Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas; a community based counseling center, a crisis shelter, a independent living program, and a school and residences for severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents.
Fees and Payment
Fees and Payment
My regular fee is $125.00 per 55 minute session. Longer sessions may be available for an additional charge.
I also offer a limited number of sliding scale slots for those clients paying out of pocket for whom this fee represents a financial hardship. As of November 2019 these spots are currently full, please feel free to check if any have opened if this situation applies to you.
FORMS OF PAYMENT:
I accept credit cards, checks, and cash in my office, and I provide invoices, payment requests and receipts via Paypal.
Payments are due at time of service or prior to the session.
I am once again accepting new Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and EPO (i.e. non-HMO) insurance clients.
If you would like to seek reimbursement through Out-of-Network benefits with an insurance plan not mentioned above, I can provide you with an appropriately coded invoice which you can submit to your insurance.
Please check with your insurance plan if you need an explanation of your current benefits (such as co-pay or co-insurance rates, deductibles, benefits, Out of Network benefits, number of sessions allowed) as plan benefits vary widely within a given insurance company's offerings.
