Scheduling a session

This is a secure link that is encrypted to protect your personal information. This information will go directly to Serenity Mental Health Services and will pre-register you.

Through the online intake process, you will have several forms that are required to be completed and signed online. Please plan to take a few moments to complete these forms so that we can process your pre-registration.

Once we receive your pre-registration form, Dr. Diana Smith, LPC-MH, QMHP,  will reach out to you to schedule your appointment and send you any remaining documentation that will need to be completed prior to your first appointment.


Most insurance companies cover telehealth services. Following your session, we will submit your information to your insurance company for processing. You will be responsible for any services not covered by your insurance company. If you have specific questions regarding your coverage, you can either contact your insurance company or work with us to determine your eligibility coverage and any applicable co-pays or deductibles.

In the event you do not have insurance or services are not covered by insurance, we also offer telehealth and in-person counseling services on a cash basis.
