How long will I be in counseling? 

This really depends on a number of factors, such as the issues you want to work on, the goals you want to achieve, and the amount of work you're willing to put into therapy. Some people come in for short-term therapy, which might be around 12 sessions, and others are in therapy for more than a year. One options isn't better than the other - it really  depends on so many different things! If you'd like to get a better idea of this, let's talk about your unique situation. And remember, you're in charge, so you can stop counseling at any time. 

Do you take insurance?

At this time we are not paneled with insurance companies, however, you are encouraged to see if you're able to use out of network benefits. If you choose this option, you will be provided with a superbill, which is a document you can submit to your insurance company. This may allow you to be reimbursed for some/all of the counseling cost, but it is very important that you call your insurance company beforehand to determine whether they will provide any coverage. 

Here are the questions you might wish to ask your insurance company about out of network coverage: 

  1. Do I have mental health coverage, and if so, do I have to meet a deductible before benefits kick in?

  2. What are my benefits for out-of-network providers?

  3. If I submit a superbill, how much of the cost will be reimbursed to me?
