1. How long does therapy take?
The length of time required for therapy varies widely. Depending on the reason(s) you are coming to counseling your time here may be brief, brief therapy on average is considered to be 6-10 sessions, or a more extended time that last longer than brief therapy. Ultimately the time it takes is determined by the client in consultation with the therapist. Often people decide to continue seeing a therapist for consultation and support, even after they are “better.” Many people see it as “preventive care.”
2. How often will I meet with the therapist?
This all depends on the clients needs. In the beginning of therapy, we may need to meet on a regular basis to obtain information and make an accurate assessment. As you experience some relief or success, it is not unusual to consult with the therapist and to decide to meet less frequently. It is also not unusual to meet multiple times a week at the beginning of therapy if you are in a crisis or if you are experiencing multiple or severe symptoms. All of this can be talked about in session.
3. Do you take insurance?
Yes we do. Please ask your therapist which insurance panels they currently are on. In the event your therapist does not take your particular insurance, a “super bill” can be provided to you so that you can file a claim with your insurance company. Also, know that many people have good out-of-network benefits and we would be more than happy to check your benefits for you!
