Frequently Asked Questions

Why do people seek therapy?

People come into therapy for many reasons. Therapy is an opportunity to learn how to live your life in a more fulfilling and satisfying way. Some need to respond to unexpected changes in their lives, while others seek self-exploration and personal growth. When coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt, doubt, anxiety, or despair, therapy can help. Therapy can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. People seeking psychotherapy are willing to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in their lives.

Do you accept insurance? How does insurance work?

We do not accept health insurance, but we are happy to prepare an E-Bill that you can submit to your insurance company. The first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:
  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How much do you pay for an out-of-net provider?
  • Is there a limitation on how much you will pay per session?

What can I expect in a therapy session?

During sessions you are expected to talk about the primary concerns and issues in your life. A session lasts 50 minutes, but some people request longer sessions. Usually weekly sessions are best. Some people who are in crisis or extreme distress need more than one session per week, at least until the crisis passes. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For therapy to “work,” you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy sessions.
