We Are Here To Help

Are you ready to take the first step to connecting and starting counseling at Angelus Therapeutic Services?

We know that reaching out is a big deal, and not always the easiest thing to do, but we are here to support you every step of the way.

Angelus is a private counseling group with offices in Lawrence & Mercer Counties, that aims to provide high quality and personalized care. Our goal is to help you feel heard, find hope, and start the healing process, as you work through difficult periods in your life. Whether that is with us or by helping you to connect with another service or level of care.

Our Intake Coordinator, Melisa, is in the office Monday-Friday from 10 AM – 2:30PM. Her mission to help you through the anxiety of coming into therapy by making scheduling your first appointment a streamlined and low-stress process.

If you are a new or returning client looking to schedule a counseling appointment with one of our therapists, you can either call us at 724-654-9555 or complete the following New Client Intake Request Form and we will call you!

psst…. Completing the form online will speed up the process and drastically cut down the number of questions we ask you over the phone.  – we have found a time or two the convenience of technology has failed us, and we have not received the forms people submitted. If we haven’t called you within 48 hrs of you sending in a form PLEASE call us, it may not have fully submitted correctly. 

  • When calling in please have your health insurance information and preferred email address available, we will need both. You can check out our insurance network chart at the bottom of this page to see if we are in or out-of-network with your insurance 
  • Following that first call/contact we will set you up with your own Angelus patient portal & you will be asked to complete your opening paperwork PRIOR to scheduling your intake appointment.
        • The intake paperwork process should take you 20-30 min and can be done online at your convenience, but the sooner you are able to complete it the faster we are able to get you in for an appointment.
        • This will allow you to complete over 95% of your paperwork before your appointment and free up that intake time to fully focus on you and your needs and journey.
Why do I need to complete my intake paperwork FIRST?

Because it dramatically streamlines the intake process and reduces the sense of stress and pressure to complete this between scheduling and being seen. We had previously allowed 48 hours for paperwork completion after scheduling, but it has been our experience that when people reach out and schedule they are under a lot of stress and are so relieved once getting their appointment scheduled, that they often forget to complete the paperwork.

This leads to MANY back and forth calls and far too many intake appointments being cancelled as a result. We want you to know that once your appointment is in the books all you need to worry about is attending and developing your plan for treatment.  

What is included in the opening paperwork?

Completing opening paperwork at any medical office is never exciting, but very important and necessary. The paperwork in your patient portal will include an informed consent, information about our many necessary policies (privacy, attendance, billing, working with minors and teens, safety precautions etc-most are listed lower on this page for you to check out ahead of time). More importantly your portal also contains several questionnaires that will help us better understand what you are currently experiencing, you past journeys, and your goals for the counseling process. This helps ensure that we match you with the best therapist for you and your circumstances.

What will my first appointment be like?

The proces of stating counseling can be a little confusing and overwhelming but we have a few suggestions on how to help prepare yourself for that process and to get the most out of your counseling experience at Angelus. Check out our blog: How to Prepare for Your First Therapy Appt

TELEPHONE ACCESSIBILITY

If you need to contact your therapist between sessions, the quickest way is to use our Patient Portal system (accessed via http://angelus.clientsecure.me or the Simple Practice App). Our therapists do NOT have individual phone extensions and are often working in different locations so reaching them directly by calling our main number is not effective. You may leave a message with our office administrator on our agency voicemail, and we can forward that information to your therapist (if it is after 2:30 PM or on the weekend they will not receive this message until the next business day).  

Please note that your therapist is not monitoring their portal or Angelus messages outside of their working hours and will likely not see your message until they next log in and may not be able to respond for 1-2 working days after receiving these messages.  

TELEPHONE BASED TELEHEALTH CONTACTS AND/OR SESSIONS:

Your therapist’s time can be very limited and as such we try to contain most communication to during scheduled therapy sessions and minimize phone calls outside of these times. When additional time is needed, we may be able to schedule an additional virtual or phone-based session. It is noted that scheduled inperson or telehealth video sessions are highly preferable to phone contacts. However, in select circumstances, phone sessions may be available. Due to licensing regulations, you must physically be within the state of PA in order to have a telehealth session with your therapist. Please keep in mind that your insurance will not cover the cost of a phone-based session; therefore, you will be responsible for a fee of $25/per every 10 min and this will be billed to your credit card on file.  

TERMINATION IN TREATMENT:

Ending the therapeutic relationships can be difficult, but it is important to know the situations or scenarios in which your treatment at Angelus may end. 

  • The goal of counseling is the successful ending of your treatment with goals met. The appropriate length and intensity of treatment varies for each person and is based on your identified treatment goals, supports, and progress towards those goals. You should generally plan on a minimum of six or more sessions with a commitment of at least two months to the treatment process.  
  • Angelus may terminate your treatment after appropriate discussion with you if your clinician determines that the psychotherapy is not being effectively used or there is a lack of commitment or progress made within this treatment relationship.  
  • Termination may occur if you are referred to a higher level of care that better meets your treatment needs. This would not preclude you from returning to Angelus upon completion of that treatment. 
  • You may terminate treatment if you do not feel that your therapist is the right fit for your needs at this time. In this case you may request a different therapist at Angelus, or your clinician can provide you with a list of qualified clinicians who may be a better fit for your needs.  
  • You may be closed immediately at Angelus if there are any concerns about the safety and security of our staff and/or other patients. Aggressive, abusive, sexually inappropriate, assaultive or harassing behaviors will not be tolerated and may also result in legal actions.   
  • You may be denied sessions if you are in default on your copay or deductible payments, or if you have had had multiple failed or late cancelled appointments as per our attendance and payment policy. 
  • You may also be closed at Angelus if you fail to schedule an appointment for three consecutive weeks, unless other arrangements have been made in advance, for legal and ethical reasons, Angelus must consider the professional relationship discontinued and your case will be closed. You will be welcome to call back and reopen services if the need arises at a later time. 

Angelus will not terminate the therapeutic relationship without first discussing and exploring the reasons and purpose of terminating with you. If therapy is terminated for any reason or you request another therapist, our office (or your insurance company) can provide you with a list of qualified psychotherapists to treat you. You may also choose someone on your own or from another referral source. With an appropriately completed release of information form we will be happy to forward your medical records to another provider of your choice to ensure continuity of care.
