What to expect
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
Your first session will be a free 25 minute consult. During that time, you will be able to share with the counselor a bit about yourself and why you have decided to seek therapy. Together you and your therapist will decide the best fit for you.
Good fit is based on rapport, availability and financial need. Be prepared to let the therapist know how often you would like to meet and what times/days work best for you. Most clients schedule 50 minute sessions once a week or every other week, though our therapists also offer 75 minute sessions.
Therapists’ rates depend on years of experience and added certifications. While we do not take insurance, we can use FSA/HSA cards. We can also provide a superbill that you may use for out of network expenses with your insurance company.
Based upon financial need, we have a sliding scale for those who may need it. Be sure to let the therapist know during the consultation if you need financial assistance.
Once you have scheduled your first full session, you will receive electronic paperwork to fill out. Please have that filled out before the session. Your therapist will go over the paperwork with you when you come in.
The length of therapy depends on your situation, how often you meet and the goals you set for yourself. Your therapist will work with you to establish a general timeframe.
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
