questions

Making the choice to start counseling is courageous, and you may have some questions. We’ve chosen some common things that come up for people seeking therapy, and we’ve provided you with some answers here. Please feel free to contact us, if you have any other questions, or need clarification.

How Does Therapy Work?2019-06-14T19:25:30+00:00

Typically our therapists meet with clients once a week for a 50-minute session. Together we set goals for what you want to accomplish in treatment and desired time frame for treatment. Similar to personal training or music lessons, we will work with you and give you tools to succeed, and you will need to practice these skills between our sessions together if you want to see optimal results.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE?2019-06-14T19:28:05+00:00

Because every person is different and have varying degrees of distress and motivation, this is a difficult question to answer. Some people only need 1-2 sessions to feel better, others that may be seeking deeper change and growth choose to attend much longer. Typically our clients average between 8 and 20 sessions to find and sustain the changed they are seeking.

HOW MUCH DO SESSIONS COST?2019-06-14T19:29:26+00:00

Sessions are $100-$150 per 50 minute session. This includes the time your therapist will use between session for assessment, consultation, research and documentation.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?2019-06-14T19:31:04+00:00

While we do not bill insurance directly, we do provide you with a “superbill” to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement or to be applied to your insurance deductible. Please be aware that not all insurance providers cover couples counseling.

SHOULD I GO TO COUPLE’S COUNSELING ALONE IF MY PARTNER DOES NOT WANT TO ATTEND?2019-06-14T19:33:06+00:00

We have seen many relationships transform when only one person is willing to work on themselves. Often this motivates the other partner to want the same changes for themselves. So if your partner is firm about not attending, then yes, consider the benefits of professional support and counseling for yourself.

DO YOU WORK WITH CHILDREN?2019-06-14T19:34:53+00:00

Yes, our Therapists are trained in working with children and adolescents and we value working with the family as a unit in order to ensure the best results for the child. Please be aware that we do not work with child custody disputes.

DO I NEED TO BE A CLIENT TO JOIN A GROUP?2019-06-14T19:35:42+00:00

Absolutely not. Groups are organized and designed to offer support, healing and hope to all that participate… client or not.

Groups are a monthly subscription fee of $200-$250, depending on the specific group. Fees are charged at the beginning of each month and cover 4 weekly meetings, which are 1 1/2-2 hours long each week.

HOW LONG DO GROUPS LAST?2019-06-14T19:38:07+00:00
