Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from therapy?

If this is your first time participating in therapy, it can be a little scary just because you are doing something that you have never done before and most of us feel a little anxious when going into the unknown.  In our first session, we will spend some time getting to know each other and learning a little more about the problem that has brought you to therapy.  You will have time to share with me your concerns, ask any questions to get to know me and about the therapy process, and then I ask you some standard questions that help me know about the important parts of your history, health and personal relationships.  Together we will set goals and review your plan, so we will both know exactly what you hope to achieve.

Do you provide a sliding scale?

We do not have a sliding scale. If you have no insurance or ecclesiastical support and have a crisis situation, a few scholarship slots for brief therapy may be available at a reduced cost. Please check for availability and for scholarship requirements.

Do I need to bring anything with me to my first appointment?

Yes, you need to download the new client information form, the financial agreement, read the Privacy Policy posted on the website and a Release of Information form if you want to receive financial support for counseling from an ecclesiastical leader or if you would like me to consult with other family or medical personnel.

If you want help checking benefits, please bring your insurance card.

Do you accept insurance?

We are an out-of network facility. It is helpful for you to contact your insurance and ask them if you have out-of-network benefits. You will need to ask them about your deductible and once you have met this what portion do they cover for your mental health visits. Do you have a need to obtain a prerequisite approval or are there any limits to the number of visits per year that you have on your plan? Payment is due at the time of service. At your request, a receipt for service will be provided that you will be able to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. The insurance company will reimburse you directly. There may be benefits to paying out of pocket. If you have questions, please ask.

What are your cancellation fees?

We ask that you provide us with a 24 hour advanced warning that you are unable to keep your appointment. In the event that you cancel after this time or do not show up to your appointment, a $50 fee will be charged.
