WHAT HAPPENS IN A COUNSELING SESSION?

The early part of therapy will focus on identifying what you want to move toward & accomplish through the counseling process. It is okay if you do not know what that is in the beginning. We will talk about your strengths & explore your thoughts, beliefs, & behaviors that influence your life.

DO YOU JUST LISTEN OR DO YOU HELP GUIDE ME?

I do both. We begin each session by checking in with you on current concerns. Each session is an interactive process that includes active listening, sharing, clarification, questions, and other appropriate therapeutic activities.

HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?

That depends on your needs and goals. Most clients meet with me on a weekly basis as we work together to identify options for personal growth and self-understanding.

HOW LONG WILL I BE IN COUNSELING?

The length of counseling depends on your specific concerns. Some individuals and couples meet their goals in 5-8 sessions while others spend 10-15 sessions. Other clients desire long-term counseling to resolve more complicated issues. I will make recommendations. However, you are in charge of when to start and when to end counseling.

HOW ARE INSURANCE COVERAGE AND PAYMENT ARRANGED?

Payment is due at the time of service. Insurance policies vary. We will discuss the insurance coverage possibilities for you. If you seek insurance coverage, I will provide you with a receipt for you to send to your insurance company.
