Common Questions

How long are sessions?

Sessions are forty-five minutes long.  Some insurance companies allow for longer sessions, but this needs to be addressed and worked out with your therapist before they are scheduled.

How often will we meet?

You and your therapist will decide together by the end of your first session how often you will have sessions.  Clients are seen either once a week, once every two weeks, or “as needed” based on what is going on in the individual’s life.  Sessions can be scheduled more than one time per week, but this varies on the type of insurance you have and the issues that are bringing you to treatment.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept most major credit cards, debit cards, checks, and cash.

Is therapy for me?

A lot of people come to a point in their life when they wonder if they need to speak to a counselor or therapist.  Therapy is a process where individuals can learn more about themselves and make changes in their lives, if needed.

Do you accept insurance?

Our office accepts most insurance plans.  Services may vary depending on the type of insurance or limits of coverage a policy has.  Our billing office will verify your insurance benefits and inform you of any deductibles, co-pays or other out-of-pocket expenses you will have obtaining treatment from our office.

Is therapy confidential?

Therapy is always confidential, unless certain issues arise, e.g., it is legally mandatory to report child abuse or elder abuse.  In most cases, the work an individual does in therapy is kept between the client and his or her therapist.  Therapists in our office cannot talk with anyone about your treatment, or to verify that you are a client, unless a release of information is signed.  Signed releases of information are kept in the client’s chart.
