What is the cost of one session?
The fee for session depends on many different factors. If you are using insurance, the amount you pay depends on your specific plan. If you'd like, we can let you know before you come in what your copay will be. If you are not using insurance, the amount you pay will depend on your therapist. Just ask-- we'll let you know before you come in what the price will be.
Do you accept insurances?
Yes, although it depends on the therapist. We can accept Aetna, Aetna Better Health, Anthem BC/BS (and Anthem Medicaid), Cigna, Passport, United Healthcare/Optum, and WellCare. In addition, we are also contracted with several EAPs in the area. You'll need to contact your benefits co-ordinator for more information.
What should I expect for the first session?
During the first session, we'll talk about what is going on and, if you are there with a partner or family member, we'll also get their perspective on things. We will also let you ask us any questions you may have and let you know what it would be like working with us and areas we would focus on.
Long long are sessions? How often would we meet?

Sessions typically last from 45-60 minutes, depending on what we are talking about in session. Occasionally sessions will be shorter (30 minutes), it just depends on your needs.

How often we meet also depends on your needs. Typically, it's beneficial to meet more frequently at the beginning and then as progress is made, meeting less frequent. We understand that budgets and schedules play into the decision and are will to work with your needs.

What is therapy like?
Therapy sessions are tailored to each individual's needs. Generally, we talk about current events in your life, new insights you've had, progress, challenges, and sometimes personal history that relates to your current situation. It will also be different depending on the therapist that you work with. Each therapist has their own approach and perspective, so it's also a good idea to talk to them about their approach to therapy.
Is therapy confidential?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer:
The law protects your personal health information from being released to non-healthcare professionals without your consent. Heathcare providers, under HIPAA, are able to release information to other healthcare providers such as your doctors, other therapists working with you, and your insurance company. There are, however, three times by law that we do have to release your information, even without your consent. These are:

  • Any indication of child abuse, abuse of the elderly, or handicapped
  • If someone indicates that they are going to harm themsevles or someone else
  • If a judge issues a subpoena for therapy records
