What is therapy?
Therapy is the process of engagement with a counselor to resolve emotional distress, problematic behaviors and beliefs. Therapy addresses a vast array of mental health or substance use issues for those with difficulties resolving issues on their own. Therapy can appear difficult in the beginning, however taking the first step to seek counseling can result in breakthrough changes.
Does telehealth really work?
Telehealth is a virtual therapy that provides mental health, substance use and counseling services via internet or phone rather than in person. Telehealth allows a therapist the same ability to effectively address many matters online that are addressed face to face.
Is therapy confidential?
As a general rule, all therapy sessions conducted are confidential that remain between counselor and client. According to ACA, “Counselors protect the confidential information of prospective and current clients. Counselors disclose information only with appropriate consent or with sound legal or ethical justification.” The general requirement that counselors keep information confidential does not apply when disclosure is required to protect clients or identified others from serious and foreseeable harm or when legal requirements demand that confidential information must be revealed. This includes the following:
- Suspected abuse to a child, dependent adult, or elderly in regards to domestic abuse
- Suspected threat of severe bodily harm to another person
- Suspected harm to oneself with a plan for suicide.
**In all cases, counselor is required to notify law authorities and make a report.**
How much does therapy cost?
Rates for counseling sessions are $75 for a 45-60-minute individual session for self-pay clients. Initial clinical intakes are $85 and are required before the first individual session. For those using insurance, please call the number located on the back of your insurance card to inquire about copay fees.
What is your cancellation policy?
Appointments can be cancelled with 24-hour notice. If you cancel an appointment with less than 24-hours notice the full fee will be incurred.
