How do I know if Max Weissman is the right fit for me or my child?
Free 20-minute consultations are offered for new clients to help you decide if Max Weissman is the right fit for your needs.
The truth is every single person and family is completely unique. Initially, I like to meet with every potential client and their family for a FREE face-to-face consultation to determine if this process will work for you and your child. It should be noted that I do not take on every client who comes in to my office for a consultation. Personally, I like to be successful, and I (am lucky enough to) only take on a client/family that I believe that I can help. This being said, I pride myself on being able to help everyone who comes in for a consultation (a one-stop catch-all), even if it is simply pointing you and your family in another direction. By working in this field for over the past decade I have developed a strong network of professionals in the area, and I can help your family create a game-plan, be it with me or with another qualified professional, school or agency.
How long are the sessions?
Individual counseling sessions are typically 50 minutes in length. If you would like longer sessions, we can create a schedule based on a mutual agreement prior to beginning treatment.
Where are you located?
I are located in Biltmore Village, in the Biltmore Crossing Building 30 Hendersonville Rd Suite9, Asheville, NC 28803. See Contact Us page for Map.
Are you licensed?
Yes, I am fully licensed Nationally (NCC) by the National Board of Counselors, and in the State of North Carolina as Licensed Professional Counselors Supervisor (LPC-S). In addition to these licenses, Max is certified as a licensed school counselors in the state of North Carolina (via the DPI) and is also a Certified Trauma School Specialist by The National Institute of Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC).
Does insurance cover the cost of counseling?
Often times counseling expenses can be reimbursed by your health insurance provider. Max is an in-Network Provider of BCBS of NC. If you wish to seek reimbursement for services from another health insurance company, Max will be happy to complete any necessary forms (forms must be provided by you). Educational services vary in cost depending on your needs. I accept cash, check, or credit-card (for the co-pay or total session) either in advance or at the time of the session- I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
