Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much will I owe?
Please contact your insurance company to find out if you have mental health benefits and if so, what your co-pay will be. Also, you may wish to inquire as to whether or not you have a deductible, and/or coinsurance. Please note that I am only able to accept cash or checks at this time.
2. How long are my sessions?
The first session may take up to 90 minutes to complete while all other sessions generally last 45 minutes.
3. How long does treatment last?
This depends on your symptoms and progress in therapy. Together we will decide what makes the most sense for you. The average length of treatment is 6 months to a year.
4. How will therapy impact my life?
This also depends on your symptoms. However, most clients find that they are more easily able to: identify their feelings and express them appropriately, use learned coping skills, practice effective communication and problem solving skills and most importantly feel better about themselves and their life circumstances.
5. Is therapy confidential?
In general, communication between a client and their counselor is confidential, and a counselor cannot disclose any of your protected health information without your written consent (or the written consent of a parent/guardian for clients under the age of 18). However, there are some exceptions to this rule. They are as follows:
- A client informs their counselor of – or the counselor suspects – child abuse/neglect, dependent adult abuse/neglect, or elder abuse/neglect. The counselor is mandated by law to report these instances to authorities and/or social services.
- A client makes a serious threat to inflict bodily harm to another person. The counselor is mandated by law to report these threats to authorities immediately.
- A client makes a serious threat to inflict harm to themselves. The counselor will make every effort to diffuse this crisis situation, but family members and/or authorities may be notified.
- A counselor has been subpoenaed to court (fees may apply).
- Processing a claim with the client’s insurance company.
