If you plan to use your health insurance to pay for all or a portion of your therapy services, please verify that Emily Learing is an in-network provider with your insurance company before scheduling an appointment. To do this, you may visit your health insurance’s website or call the 1-800 number located on your health insurance card. If Emily Learing is not listed as an in-network provider with your health insurance company, you may have to pay a higher co-pay or co-insurance, or possibly all of the cost of the therapy appointment.
To schedule an appointment by phone call (605) 275-0009. If you have to leave a voice mail, please explain the best method to safely and confidentially get in contact with you. Please notify Encompass Mental Health if you wish for no voice mails to be left on your phone.
To schedule an appointment online, use the appointment scheduler at the bottom of the page. If you choose to schedule an appointment online, you will be required to provide your first and last name and a phone number so that you can be contacted in the event that the appointment needs to be cancelled or rescheduled. The scheduling program that Encompass Mental Health utilizes complies with HIPAA regulations regarding encryption of information, but if you are uncomfortable in any way with having to provide your name and phone number on a scheduling website, please call the office by phone to schedule an appointment.
When scheduling an appointment online, select the best option for you based on the descriptions below:
If this is the first time that you are scheduling an appointment at Encompass Mental Health, or if you have not attended an appointment at Encompass Mental Health for 6 months or more, select the Initial Assessment appointment. This appointment will last 90 minutes.
If you schedule an Initial Assessment, please be sure to visit the Forms page of the website to see which forms you will need to bring with you to your first session.
Before scheduling an initial assessment, please note that I will be taking a 2-3-week maternity leave, tentatively in mid-October. Upon my return, I will only be in the office one day per week and will increase days gradually until I have returned full-time. If this works with your schedule, please feel free to schedule your intake session.
If you have attended an appointment at Encompass Mental Health in the past 6 months, select the Therapy Session appointment. This appointment will last between 45 and 50 minutes.
To save yourself time and energy, please verify that Emily Learing is a covered provider under your health insurance plan before scheduling an appointment.
