Frequently Asked Questions

Counseling is an opportunity to focus on the things that aren’t working in life, make changes, and find a more effective way to live. During the process, people typically meet weekly for about an hour with a counselor. They are able to discuss the difficulties in life and find strategies to fix them.

People from all walks of life who find themselves stuck, often find it beneficial to work with a counselor.

Therapy is a confidential conversation between a counselor and client. The focus is on the client’s difficulties in life and the changes that need to be made. Over the weeks, skills are introduced, accountability is established, and successes are celebrated as progress is achieved. 

Becoming a licensed counselor or therapist, requires a master’s degree and licensure in the state they will be practicing. Continuing education is required to maintain the license.

I typically work with adults who are interested in improving their lives. I meet with couples and help them build their relationships or become better parents. I also work with individual men and women who struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, difficult transitions in life, and more.

 

We work with a variety of health insurance companies, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Preferred One, Aetna, and UCare.  

Yes, you can.  While many people will use insurance to cover the cost of therapy, some people find that they never reach the deductible or just don’t want to use insurance.  We have private pay options as well as a sliding fee scale for those who need the help and can’t afford it.  We don’t want lack of money to keep someone from the help they need.
