Common Questions

The best way to select a therapist that would be a good fit for you is to ask questions during a phone consultation and/or come in for an in-person meeting with a therapist whose specializations seem right for you. While you are talking with a potential therapist, the therapist can get to know your circumstances to see if they can help and that is also a good opportunity for you to evaluate them and see if they seem like they could be helpful for you.
During our initial meeting, your therapist will ask important questions about your life. Those questions might center around what your presenting issues is, how your significant relationships are going, as well as questions regarding your childhood or how you were raised. An important part of the initial session is getting to know your history, both the good and bad. Whether or not you have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual abuse is important for your therapist to know and it is an important part of therapy that this is discussed if present in your experience.
Additional questions might be asked about your sexual functioning, your mood, appetite and sleep patterns. A diagnosis may be made to establish a course of treatment as well as receiving reimbursement from your insurance.
This depends on your presenting issues and who you are as a person. Most clients come weekly or every other week depending on their needs or financial constraints. According to research, most clients know by the 6th to 8th session whether therapy is good/right for them. The best approach to therapy for yourself is to give the process about a 6-month commitment. Depending on the issue being treated and how much work you put into yourself, therapy can go longer or shorter.
We offer reasonable rates based on what times are needed for appointments and your income. We try to be as financially accommodating as possible. Payment is taken care of at the start of each session and you can have a billing statement provided to you for insurance reimbursement. Payment can be provided through Cash, Credit, or Checks. We do not handle insurance directly but you may receive reimbursement for services provided depending on your insurance plan. Give your insurance a call and determine what your coverage is to find out if you are eligible for mental health reimbursement benefits.
Your session is totally confidential and will be discussed with someone else only with your prior written consent. Your confidentiality is protected by law. Certain state laws require that licensed mental health professionals report instances when a person is a danger to themselves or others, or when child, elder, or dependent adult abuse is involved.
