Where? We meet with people at our offices, a safe space where you can be comfortable and relaxed. Check out the contact page.
When? We have a variety of day and evening hours to meet with clients during the week. Contact us to find a time that suits you. Sessions often last 50 minutes.
How often? Counseling frequency varies depending on your goals, concerns and progress. It is common to meet every week, and more or less as appropriate. After the initial assessment session/s you will discern with your counselor what is best for you.
How will I know if my counselor is a good fit? Counseling does depend on a good fit with your counselor. We generally offer a free 15 minute phone consultation with your counselor to have a brief introduction and allow you to have direct answers to your specific questions. If you feel unsure after this time we will happily help you find someone who is a good fit!
What should I expect on my first session? At your first appointment, we will explore what has brought you to counseling, your unique history and significant relationships, as well as your hopes and goals for the future. In some cases, this initial assessment may take two sessions. Then we will make a plan for your course of treatment to meet your goals.
Cost: We have a range of fees from $30-$185 depending on the work we are doing and the counselor chosen. Often when we only talk about fees we lose the opportunity to hear your needs and the ability to help find you the right solution that works therapeutically and financially. To know more about payment, please contact us. Payment can be made by card, cash, or check.
Can I use insurance? We are out of network providers. Contact your insurance company to ask about "out of network" mental health benefits. Many companies do reimburse for our services. Even if you do not have out of network mental health coverage, you may be able to count your sessions toward your deductible. We can provide a diagnostic receipt, upon request, to file with your insurance company.
What if I need additional help? We work to refer people to the best resources possible to meet their needs. For example, it can be appropriate to visit a doctor, psychiatrist or lawyer. Releases can be signed to aid you in your work with other professionals.
