Sean Slevin: Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor Sean Slevin’s Availability (For New Clients)

Note: Current/previous clients please use the regular Availability  form.

Note: I currently do not have any openings for New Clients. You are welcome to either check back in 3-6 weeks, or to try my colleague, Travis Kessell.

Welcome: I am glad that you are taking the step of seeking help. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to learn more about me and my counseling approach.

Location: My counseling office is located at 250 E. Market Street, Harrisonburg, VA (next to Burger King and across from Urban Exchange).

Fee, Insurance, and Cancellation Policy: My fee is a sliding-scale ($140 to $80), with discounts for incomes below $120,000/year. The first session is half-price (e.g., $70). The fee is per-session, not per-person, for up to three people present in a session. I accept Cash, Check or Online Payment (via Venmo, Zelle, etc.). I do not accept credit cards or health insurance, but I can provide monthly statements that you can use to seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier. Note that using health insurance (directly or indirectly) for counseling requires that you meet the criteria for a mental health diagnosis, which then becomes a permanent part of your medical record. Please make your check out to “Transitions Counseling” (or pay online) prior to your visit in order to save time during your session. If you need to cancel your session, please give a minimum of 24 hours notice or you will be billed the full fee.

Discounted Slots Availability: As mentioned above, my fee is $140/session. But I do offer a limited number of discounted slots at the following levels (and the first session is half of the below amounts):

  • $120/session (some availability)
  • $100/session (some availability)
  • $80/session (all slots full)

Note: These limits only apply to new clients. I always try to work in current/previous clients, regardless of discount level.

Session Length, 1st Session, and Paperwork: Sessions are normally 50 minutes long. My preference is to have new clients complete the required paperwork online prior to your first session. I use a secure online service which I will send you more information about once you are scheduled. If someone will be joining you (e.g., spouse, partner, friend) please be sure to include their name and email address below—each person attending fills out their own paperwork (so I will need to email them their instructions). If you would prefer to fill out the paperwork in-person you can let me know that in the Comments below (and you will want to plan to arrive earlier for your first session). If you are scheduling an Online Session please mention that in the Comments (I will assume you are coming for an In-Person Session unless you tell me otherwise).

Response Time and Crises/Emergencies: I respond to scheduling requests as quickly as possible (usually within a few business days). I do not provide 24-hour crisis hotline services. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency please call 911 or try the community emergency resources listed in the FAQ.

Using this Form: I recommend that you read the Guidelines and Tips for using the Availability form, and also note the Disclaimers regarding email confidentiality. If the times that you need are unavailable, please list them in the Comments and I will email you if they become available. Please remember that your session is not officially scheduled until you receive confirmation from me.

Additional Availability with Other Counselors at Transitions: If you have trouble finding Available times with me (Sean) please consider working with one of my Counseling Colleagues (such as Travis Kessell). We share similar beliefs, values and goals regarding our desire to better the world through counseling and psychology. In addition to what we share in common, we also each bring our own uniqueness (both in our personality mixes and in our areas of focus). Note that the below calendar is for scheduling with Sean Slevin—please visit the above links to schedule with any of Sean’s colleagues.
