What can I expect from therapy sessions?

The initial session is getting to know you and each other to see what we need to focus on in order to help you the best way possible. 

Information from your past will be gathered, we will talk about where you are in your current situation and where you want to be in the future. You are never required to answer anything you do not feel comfortable talking about. 

We move at a pace that is best for you. 

Key Questions:

Have you been in therapy before?

What do you want to get from coming to therapy?

How will you know when you have achieved your goals?

What things have you tried that work and don't work?

Follow up sessions included an overview of the past week, exploring past situations, finding the root of each current problem, creating goals and a plan, etc.

How long does each therapy session last?

Initial and Follow Up sessions last up to 50 minutes.

Check In sessions are available for certain situations, which last up to 27 minutes.

Why don't you take insurance? Can I get reimbursed from my insurance company?

I do not take insurance, only because it limits the work I can do with clients, and limits your confidentiality, among other things. 

It also, giving the therapist more time to spend on each individual client without getting burnt out. When a therapist has a smaller caseload you are able to receive the attention you deserve. 

I can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.

You would need to contact your insurance company to see if this is an option.
