Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that starting counseling can be difficult and that you probably have a lot of questions. Rest assured, you’re not alone and we want you to know that we’re here to help.
DO YOU OFFER FREE CONSULTATIONS?
Yes, for potential clients. We offer a brief 15 minute phone consultation. There is no charge. This is an opportunity to ask questions and assess what working with the provider may be like.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
We accept BCBS, BCN, Beacon (Value Options/Beaumont), Tricare, and McLaren. Medicaid and Medicare are not billed at this time. HSA and FSA are accepted.
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO BE IN THERAPY?
The short answer is that it takes as long as it takes. Be mindful that there are many components including your commitment to the process. Some therapy focuses on the here and now which can be short term. Others may be experiencing invasive long term symptomatology that requires more intensive therapy.
WILL THERAPY "FIX" THE PROBLEM?
Therapy is essentially designed to help you become aware and actively address what is presenting as disruptive in your daily life. Your therapist will help you navigate the journey. While therapy can be helpful it often is very revealing and can be challenging and emotionally charging. The answers you get may not always be what you expect and yet people find that if their goal is to be healthier, more allied with themselves or their couple, connected and able to experience peace, harmony, and joy they are able to achieve success in therapy.
WILL THERE BE HOMEWORK?
The answer is yes. Leaving each session there will always be something to process further and think about. For couples or individuals engaging in couples work or sex therapy that may include specific activities. All activities are done in the privacy of your home.
WHAT IS THE COVID-19 RESPONSE?
We are open for in person services. If you, or someone in your home, have been exposed to COVID-19 or tested positive in the last 14 days, regardless of symptomatology, you will need to submit a negative PCR test result before being seen in the office or wait 14 days from the date of notifying the office. Telehealth is available during that time. Office Safety Precautions in Effect During the Pandemic
