How can therapy help?
Therapists are trained in the skill of helping people make changes. Techniques are well-researched and proven to be beneficial. Therapists listen carefully and customize a plan to help you reach your goals.
Will my insurance pay for counseling?
Many insurance companies will cover counseling. Co-pays and deductibles will apply. We currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network.
What if my insurance does not cover counseling?
We can provide a bill to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Private pay rates are $135 per session. You can pay from your Health Savings Account or with Visa, Mastercard, AMEX or check.
Do you prescribe medication or perform psychological testing?
We collaborate with your primary care physician or with a psychiatrist for those who need medication, or psychological testing. We cannot prescribe medications, but our assessments are useful and sometimes required by your provider. While most of our clients do not require medication, it can be a benefit to some. Many doctors require that those using medication also seek counseling to gain cognitive behavioral skills to alleviate their symptoms.
What if I am in crisis?
If you are thinking of harming yourself or have suicidal thoughts, call 911 for immediate assistance. We do not provide immediate crisis intervention at our office, though you may call us for follow up care. The number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-8255.
