About Bridge Vision

OUR STORY

Hi my name is Colleen Nomsa Chali, owner of Bridge Vision Licensed Clinical Social Worker Inc. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of California. For a long time I dreamed about being able to open up an outpatient mental health clinic, where I could work with individuals who needed mental health treatment in my own space and my own time. After I got licensed in 2013, I decided to work towards opening my own Private Practice, and in 2015 of May, I opened up my practice in downtown San Bernardino, as a sole proprietor. In 2016 I decided to change from a Sole Proprietor to an S Corporation, so I could open up to other psychotherapist who would like to work for Bridge Vision as contractors, that way we can respond more readily to the demand for services.

WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”, is a way to treat people with a mental disorder by helping them understand their illness. It teaches people strategies and gives them tools to deal with stress and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy helps patients manage their symptoms better and function at their best in everyday life.

Sometimes psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment for a person, depending on the illness and its severity. Other times, psychotherapy is combined with medications. Therapists work with an individual or families to devise an appropriate treatment plan.

Many kinds of psychotherapy exist. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach. In addition, some therapies have been scientifically tested more than others. Some people may have a treatment plan that includes only one type of psychotherapy. Others receive treatment that includes elements of several different types. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her needs.

This section explains several of the most commonly used psychotherapies. However, it does not cover every detail about psychotherapy. Patients should talk to their doctor or a psychotherapist about planning treatment that meets their needs (information taken from National Institutes of Health).

Confidentiality

The law protects the privacy of all communications between a patient and a Psychotherapist (therapist). In most situations, the therapist can only release information about your treatment to others if you sign a written authorization form. But, there are some situations where the therapist is permitted or required to disclose information without your consent or authorization.

Therapists may occasionally find it helpful to consult other health and mental health professionals about a case. During a consultation, the clinician will not reveal your identity.

Disclosures required by health insurers or to collect overdue fees are discussed elsewhere in this agreement.

If you threaten to harm yourself or someone else, your therapist may be obligated to take action. This might involve notifying a potential victim, contacting the police, pursuing hospitalization or contacting family members or others who can help provide protection.

If you are involved in legal proceedings wherein your mental or emotional condition is relevant and when a subpoena or court order is served on me, your therapist may be required to release confidential information about you. Your therapist will make every effort to discuss this with you beforehand.

If your therapist suspects or have knowledge that a child under 18 has been the victim of child abuse or neglect, the law requires that I file a report with the appropriate governmental agency. The therapist can also make a report if they know or reasonably suspect that mental suffering has been inflicted upon a child. Once such a report has been filed, the therapist may be required to provide additional information.

If your therapist suspects or has knowledge that an elder or dependent adult has been the victim of abuse or neglect, the law requires that your therapist report to the appropriate governmental agency. Once such a report is filed, your therapist may be required to provide additional information.

Termination

Your participation in psychotherapy is voluntary and you have the right to withdraw from treatment without adversity at any time. I would recommend that when termination is considered, you discuss this with me, so that we can create a plan for termination to minimize any possible negative effects. Treatment can also be terminated for lack of follow-up with on your part.

Privacy of your email

Your email is kept strictly private, it will not be sold, shared or disclosed to anyone.

The Content of all the messages between you and your counselor will appear only in our secure private system. We will only send you emails with alerts about messages waiting for you in your secure private space.

Means of communication during counseling sessions?

Private online session – Through the use of video, a face to face interaction is much like an office visit.

Telephone – This interaction is for individuals who either don’t have video or are more comfortable just talking.

Live chat – Text messaging is available.

At Counseling on Demand, we feel that the quality of the therapist/client interaction is of the utmost value, whichever medium is utilized; thus, good therapy can be equally or even more effective than traditional office sessions.

Who Benefits from On-Line Therapy?

Online counseling isn’t for everyone, but has proven to be an effective treatment option for many people. Individuals seeking treatment who find themselves in extreme circumstances could be better suited to an office setting.

It’s not uncommon for a person seeking treatment to feel anxiety about traditional in person therapy options. On-line counseling provides an alternative for those who feel embarrassed or uncomfortable making an office appointment with a therapist.

Those who live in remote areas often find it difficult to travel to a therapist’s office on a regular basis. On-line counseling eliminates those barriers.

Individuals with tight schedules, physical challenges or conflicting relationships can benefit from the flexibility of online counseling.

Billing and Payments

My fees are $120 for assessment. $100 per 60 minutes, and $85for 45min. You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held, unless we agree otherwise or unless you have insurance coverage which requires another arrangement.
