"The ability to ask questions is the greatest resource in learning truth"
-Carl G. Jung-
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions to help you get a better sense of what to expect.
I am not ready to attend in-person therapy, do you offer online appointments?
Yes. All appointments are offered online via tele-health, in-person and over the phone. Once you have inquired and completed your Intake, you will be sent an information to link into a secure HIPAA-compliant tele-health platform where we can conduct your sessions.
Can I use my insurance even though you are out-of-network?
I do not accept insurance and am considered an out-of-network provider. However, I do offer Superbills for you to submit to your insurance plan in case your plan offers reimbursement for your services. Some insurance plans offer a portion of coverage, so it truly depends on your specific plan.
How come you don't accept insurance at this time?
I believe it is in the client's best interest to have full control over their own healthcare. While insurance is meaningful and important to have, I do not find it compelling to have a third-party (i.e. insurance companies) make the final decision on what services can and should be covered. When decisions are left up to a third-party, someone usually end up with the shorter end of the stick. The shorter end most often ends up the with the client, who usually ends up with additional bills due to insurance denying coverage. In order to avoid this unfortunate inconvenience, I have decided not to accept any insurance coverage. I find better satisfaction in a direct approach where I disclose my full rates directly with clients and there are no unexpected bills. This leaves us more time to focus on the most important part of treatment, YOU!
I have never received therapy, what will happen?
Starting any new journey can be riddled with fear, your courage to even think about therapy is one of the bravest steps you could take in your journey to heal. Therapy starts with a formal bio-psycho-social assessment, where your therapist is able to find out information about your current condition and appropriately diagnose the issue that is causing your current symptoms. Using this information, your therapist will support you to develop a Treasure Map (clinically known as a treatment plan) which allows you sufficient opportunity to discuss your goals for therapy. Therapy is different for every person and is tailored to your individual needs. Some people need to meet more frequently (1 or 2x per week), and others need to meet less frequently (at least 1x per month). You will partner with your therapist to identify the BEST plan for you.
I am so nervous about starting services, is this normal?
Absolutely! It is very normal to be nervous about beginning any new journey. With time, it will get better and soon enough your nerves will settle. I encourage you to attend, even if you are nervous. Please do not hesitate, I am patiently waiting to meet you. Let's talk soon!
I am NOT a Christian nor do I follow any faith, can you still help me?
Yes! No matter what your spiritual beliefs are, I have tons of experience working with individuals from all belief systems. While the style of therapy offered is faith-informed, you do NOT have to share the same viewpoint. I do believe you will find the support beneficial and am committed to supporting you despite your personal belief system. I have worked with various backgrounds and am open to support you the best way I can.
How long will therapy take?
Every case is different. While I aim to conduct efficient sessions, there are some issues which require more attention than others. Your treatment plan will highlight the number of sessions needed to help you resolve your condition. Prior to beginning treatment, you will receive something known as a Good Faith Estimate so you have an idea of how long your treatment may take. We will discuss this further during your Initial Intake appointment.
