Frequently Asked Questions.

Do I need therapy?

Whether or not you receive mental health services is your choice. If you would like help with your thought life, your emotions, your choices, or your relational situation then psychotherapy is a wonderful process. It is especially helpful if problems in any of these areas hinders how you function everyday.

How can therapy help?

Psychotherapy can help you manage unwanted thoughts and difficult feelings by gaining coping tools, behavioral strategies, and insight to work through. With therapy you can gain clarity and make sense of what is going on with you or your relationship to move past any barriers to your peace of mind and daily living.

What is therapy like?

Expect to talk, learn new skills in behavioral and mood management, to solve problems, and to open your mind even further. We will ask you about your therapeutic needs and we’ll build a trusting relationship for you to safely process at your pace what helps you gain peace of mind and contentment in life.

Why “Christian” counseling?

 “I decided to offer christian counseling because many clients I know have desired it and found it to be incredibly valuable. In my professional experience, I’ve discovered and continously grown a profound respect for the power of God. I know nothing like it. I believe God is the source of all truth, light, peace, hope, and joy and these are all pieces I want woven throughout this practice. Although these can definitely be achieved by other means, God’s presence and movement is welcome here so we don’t have to avoid the topic. However, I understand and respect anyone who wants to receive therapy free of religion, so we use secular therapeutic methods unless otherwise preferred by you.” ~ Brittany

What if I am not a Christian or do not believe in God?

Any spiritual inclusion is based only on your preferences and the level of importance you give it. We will not discuss or mention God at all unless you initiate or request it, and even then, we follow your lead on spiritual matters.

How long can I expect to be in therapy?
Everyone is different because every individual and story is different, so therapy can last anywhere from a couple of sessions to months or even years. Because it takes at least two sessions to establish trust, you can expect to at least have 2-3 sessions. Length of therapy will depend on what you want and need. A few sessions may be sufficient for a very specific problem, or services for a longer term may be needed to resolve issues that run a bit deeper. We will discuss your needs and expectations and continue to evaluate your progress along the way to ensure you receive what you need and desire.

What if I can’t afford your fee?

We understand that receiving therapy can be financially cumbersome and we believe therapy shouldn’t be a financial stressor atop whatever other matters you’re facing. Because of this, we are upfront with our rates and offer lower fees for those who qualify. You may receive Out of Network (OON) benefits from your insurance provider, so we offer an invoice for you to submit to them for reimbursement. If we’re unable to accomodate you comfortably then we will do our best to care for you by finding someone who suits your therapeutic needs as well as financial ability.

What should I discuss with my insurance provider for coverage of therapy?

It is important to know what all to ask your insurance provider so that you are informed of what services you have coverage for. Some helpful questions to consider asking your provider are:
⦁ What are my mental health benefits?

⦁ Do I have an insurance deductible to meet?
⦁ What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
⦁ How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
⦁ How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
⦁ Is approval required from my primary care physician?
