Welcome to Plankeel Counseling


A little bit about our philosophy of practice:

There are two kinds of problems we face in life - problems we can effectively change, and problems we learn to accept. Acceptance is no small task and change is challenging without insight and understanding. We are rarely ready to accept painful realities until we have grieved and until our grief has been met by a compassionate witness. Sometimes we aren't ready to talk about the change until we first feel understood. Here at Plankeel Counseling, we will strive to understand where you are coming from, what troubles you are facing, and ultimately what you would like to see differently at the end of treatment. We will recommend a treatment strategy that is evidence-based, and give you several different approaches - tailored to your specific needs in a collaborative partnership.


Update on our Availability


Beth Kirk-Small, LMFT has availability right now on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and she is paneled to take Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, Tricare, and private or cash-pay clients.  Beth sees older teens, and adults of any age, and she does both individual and couples/marriage counseling.  Click on "Make an Appointment" above and schedule an intake with her today!  


Jeff Plankeel, LCSW has limited availability for new clients and therefore is requiring clients to call to inquire about scheduling if you are new to his practice.  He sees clients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  Jeff sees teens and adults and does both individual and marriage therapy.  Jeff takes BCBS, Aetna, Cigna, Tricare, and Medicare, but his insurance slots are currently full and so he is only accepting new clients wishing to private or cash-pay at this time.  Jeff has opened up to new clients scheduling an intake online, but please be sure you are not planning to use insurance if you schedule there with Jeff.  Also, while Jeff sees clients of all backgrounds for clinical care, if you are specifically looking for faith-based counseling you will want to reach out to Jeff as he has had some formal training in this regard attending Wheaton College.

  

If you are an existing client, you are able to schedule or cancel and reschedule at the client portal link above for ongoing therapy sessions.

All new clients scheduling online will be directed to schedule with Beth Kirk-Small, LMFT if using insurance.  Only clients wishing to cash pay may schedule with Jeff Plankeel, LCSW online.
