Therapy is a confidential, safe space where you will be able to work through any concerns you may have from a trained therapist. Our sessions are 45-50 minutes in length and are held either in-person at our office or via Telehealth (video). If you are unsure of your goals or where to start, our experienced therapists will collaborate with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets your needs. Our therapists are knowledgeable in many different types of therapy and will be able to integrate the approach that is best suited for you.
The number of sessions varies for each person. Our recommendation is to start with weekly appointments for the first 6-8 weeks. We have found this to be most effective as it gives us the opportunity to develop a trusting relationship, establish consistency, and allows us to build momentum towards your treatment goals. From there, you can discuss with your therapist if continued weekly sessions would be most effective and when to transition to sessions every other week.
Our therapists cannot prescribe medication; medication can only be prescribed by a medical doctor (M.D.). While we are educated and familiar with the medications that are commonly helpful with mental health issues, we cannot offer you medical advice as it is outside of our scope of practice. If you would like to explore medication as an option, we encourage you make an appointment with your primary care physician or a psychiatrist (a medical doctor who specializes in mental health).
If you are thinking about taking the next step towards a better, brighter future we want you to get the most out of your experience. One of the ways you will be able to do so is by committing to regular session attendance. Like many things in life, the more you commit to an experience, the more you will get out of it. Moreover, by committing to regular attendance you will naturally develop a trusting bond with your therapist. As your therapist comes to know and understand you, your therapist’s goal is always to help you experience hope, healing and growth in your life!
We know that feeling connected to your therapist is one of the most important factors in your therapeutic experience. Our recommendation is to commit to three sessions with your therapist before deciding if you want a change. Starting with a therapist is comparable to starting a new book; you may want to read the first few chapters before deciding if you want to invest your time in the rest of the book. If after the first few sessions you are not feeling connected to your therapist, we encourage you to share your feelings with your therapist and we will provide you with referrals other therapists.
We do not accept or bill medical insurance; we are a self-pay practice. We can provide you with a “superbill,” a receipt that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please contact your medical insurance provider for information about coverage for out of network mental health services.
