Making an Appointment

Seeking therapy may be difficult for people as there is so much uncertainty, anxiety and many questions. that need to be answered. Please feel free to call and we will discuss these issues. Therapy should be viewed as a positive experience and a strength of any parent or child.

If I do not personally answer your call, then I am most likely in session or attending to an emergency. I am very prompt in returning calls and make myself available to my clients/parents 24 hours a day on my cell phone.

If you do choose my services, please refer to the Forms link on this website. There are a few forms that you can print, and complete and bring along with you to your first session. This will save us time during our initial session that is designated for assessment purposes. To ensure privacy, I do not offer online completion of these forms.



David Benson/EastShore Counseling Services may accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield "State and Federal Employee Program" insurance.

At the present I do not contract with any other insurance firms.  However, upon your request, I will provide a monthly statement/itemized receipt which you can submit to your insurance company for third party reimbursement. Your insurance company may or may not approve your submission for third party reimbursement. Please be sure to contact your insurance company for their rules and regulations regarding reimbursement policies.  Most clients do get reimbursed directly for therapy services.  Payment is expected at the time of service.

  • Initial Assessment/Diagnosis (The First Session, usually One Hour) - $120.00
