Determination Counseling and Psychological Services specializes in trauma-based treatment with convenient access to mental health providers. It is the mission of Determination Counseling and Psychological Services to provide culturally diverse mental health treatment to a variety of individuals, in an effort to make the world a place that we all want to be a part of.
Philosophy and Vision:
It is my philosophy that each individual is “uniquely beautiful” and that given the right help and training that we all have the ability to become our “ideal” self.
Determination Counseling and Psychological Services is now providing both in-person (central valley area only) and telepsychology services, also known as telehealth services. Telepsychology services are conducted remotely via video conference (i.e., “video-chatting”) and/or synchronous audio conferencing.
Determination Counseling and Psychological Services is currently accepting Optum Behavioral Health & affiliate companies, Cigna/Evernorth, TriCare West, Magallen(Blue Shield), traditional Medicare, and most EAP providers. You may be able to receive reimbursement through your insurance provider for approved Out-of-network services if your provider is not one of the companies listed above. Our rates vary depending on services provided but are typically lower than other providers in the area.
