I currently see clients in the Saint Augustine office on Tuesdays from 8 am to 4 pm and Thursday evenings with teletherapy options available in the evening on weekdays as well.
WELCOME TO ELBOW TREE!
I'm so glad that you have taken the first step to seek counseling! It takes courage to walk into the unknown. I will walk alongside you in this process and I look forward to meeting you. Below you will find some helpful information, including a list of common reasons you may seek counseling and a little more about me and my credentials. Please reach out if you have any questions along the way. GETTING STARTED WITH ME:
Scheduling I do all of my own scheduling. I have a variety of times available. The quickest and easiest way get an appointment with me is to email or call. If you think there is something we need to discuss before you schedule, feel free to email, text or call. Once you schedule your appointment, you will receive both text and email confirmations of your scheduled appointment with links to your secure client portal also found at: kyla-salmond.clientsecure.me/.
Payment The standard fee for all clients for a 50-minute session is $100. I accept cash, personal checks, debit cards, credit cards, and health savings account cards. All card charges will include a 3.5% processing fee. It is the policy of Elbow Tree that the session feeis to be paid prior to the end of each session.
Discounted Fees Pre-paying for 8-10 sessions knocks 20% off of the hourly fee. 8 bundled sessions is $640 and 10 bundled sessions is $800. Your bundle may be distributed among multiple family members. I do offer a sliding scale for any financial hardship. Please discuss this option with me in our initial session.
Insurance I do not take any form of insurance other than the use of an HSA Card, but would be glad to make a helpful referral to another clinician locally who might be in a position to accommodate that for you. Other licensed clinicians at Elbow Tree are able to provide you with a receipt for you to submit or some amount of reimbursement from your health care provider.
Forms All intake forms must be completed online prior to your first appointment with me by completing online intake forms found at: kyla-salmond.clientsecure.me/.
Arrival When you arrive to the office in Saint Augustine, park anywhere and feel free to come on into the waiting area and find a cozy place to relax until our session begins. I will be out at the top of the hour to greet you, so don't worry if it's close the time we are supposed to meet and you have not seen me yet. I may be wrapping up a session just ahead of you. Also, feel free to use the restroom in the office prior to our session.
Cancellations Please give me 24-hours notice if you need to cancel our appointment by calling or emailing me. Last minute cancellations and no-shows will be charged the full session fee unless it is a medical emergency.

A Little More About Me
I graduated from Northwest Christian College with my bachelor's degree in Psychology and obtained my masters degree from Colorado Christian University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I have worked in education for over ten years in school settings and with all ages of students including preschool, elementary, middle school, high school and college age students. I have worked in private practice as a counseling Intern and in public schools as a therapist. I am currently a School Counselor for Cathedral Parish School. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Board Certified Coach. I work from a strengths based approach incorporating your gifts and your strengths alongside the difficulties you are facing in life. I use a person centered therapy approach and I strive to provide unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence. When working with children I incorporate play therapy techniques and cognitive behavioral techniques as well.
