  • What happens during the free 15-minute phone consultation?
    You and a phone consultant will discuss any issues that you are currently looking to work on. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any additional questions that you may have about our practice. At the end of the consultation, you and the consultant will decide what the next step will be with regard to therapy and service linkage.
  • What can I expect to achieve in therapy?
    There are many benefits to engaging in therapy. Some of these include gaining a better understanding of oneself, figuring out life goals and prospects, improving personal relationships, developing coping skills, enhancing problem-solving abilities, making positive changes to problem behaviors, and boosting self-esteem. Your therapist will work with you throughout this process and offer new insight into an issue that you have been struggling with. The benefit that you obtain will ultimately depend on how committed you are to the treatment.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Our practice has therapists who are in-network with the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Cigna, and United Health plan. We are out-of-network providers for all other insurance plans. Many insurance policies offer partial reimbursement to see an out-of-network therapist; you may wish to consult with your insurance carrier regarding this benefit. We will be happy to provide you with an invoice that can be submitted to your carrier for reimbursement.
  • What are your fees?
    Our fee range varies by the service provided. We will be happy to discuss rates with you during your consultation. You can schedule an appointment here.
  • What forms of payment are accepted?
    We accept payment, including HSA cards, and major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, etc.).
  • What is your cancelation policy?
    Our cancellation policy requires 24-hour notice of cancellation. Cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice requires payment in full. If you are unable to attend your session in person, you can always do it via phone or video.
  • How often do I have to come in?
    Once-per-week sessions are the standard for individual counseling, though clients are welcome to seek more frequent sessions if they are in crisis or want greater insight.
  • What type of method or approach does your practice use?
    Our practice is not limited to just one method or approach. We tailor our therapy to meet the needs of each client and draw from various theoretical models, including Psychodynamic, Relational, Family Systems, Narrative, Experiential, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT), and Holistic.
  • Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
    Confidentiality is one of the most important components in therapy, as successful therapy requires a high degree of trust. With few exceptions, the highly sensitive material that is discussed between you and your therapist will not be shared with anyone else without your permission. For example, your therapist may share information with someone on your healthcare team (your Physician, Naturopath, or Attorney), but by law, will only be allowed to release this information after obtaining your written consent. In addition, therapists are legally mandated to make certain disclosures in cases where there is suspicion of harm to oneself, harm to others, or child abuse. All such disclosures will be discussed with you in advance.
  • Do you prescribe medication?
    Our therapists are not psychiatrists, and therefore we do not prescribe medication. However, in some cases, medication can be valuable in combination with psychotherapy. If your therapist determines that you could benefit from meeting with a psychiatrist, we can assist with referring you to someone in our trusted network of referrals.
  • How do I start therapy?
    To begin you will need to schedule your FREE 15-minute phone consultation here.

    The length of our sessions depends on the type of service you receive: An individual psychotherapy session is 50 minutes. A couples session is 60 minutes. The Meditation & Mindfulness Group is 60 minutes. Clinical Assessment session is 60 minutes.
