Frequently Asked Questions
Who do we provide support for?
We provide individual counseling, marriage counseling, and family support. We support people of all identities, ethnicities, religions, orientations, lifestyles, and backgrounds. We are here to help, whatever it is.
How much does it cost?
Everyone’s situation is different. Your insurance will also help to determine your out-of-pocket costs. To learn about our fees, please give us a call so we can help.
What can I expect from our first session?
The first session with any new therapist is called an intake session. During this session, we will gather information including your history, why you’re here, and what your goals are for our time together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know you, for questions to be asked, and for you to get a feel for us and our offices.
What exactly is therapy?
Therapy/psychotherapy/counseling is the process of meeting with a trained, credentialed professional on a (usually) weekly, ongoing basis to help you recognize and change deep-rooted and potentially self-sabotaging mental and emotional behaviors, thoughts, and patterns that will keep you feeling stuck, in pain, and away from the life you want to live.
Is what I share confidential?
Completely. What you share in a session is completely confidential except in three cases: 1) if there is an immediate threat of harm to self or others, 2) if there is suspicion of child or dependent elder abuse, or 3) if we are required to cooperate with court subpoena. All of our digital communications are secure as any emails sent to and from our office are encrypted above HIPAA’s standards
