  • How will I know when I'm done with therapy?
    This will be answered through your journey as you begin to achieve your goals. While your goals may change over time, ultimately, you and your therapist decide together, as a team, when it feels right to reduce the frequency of sessions or to stop treatment. Many clients choose to end treatment and then return for “booster” sessions or to achieve a new goal. When you have a strong, established connection with your therapist, there is often comfort in returning to regular sessions knowing you can pick up right where you left off.
  • What if I have nothing to talk about when I walk into session?
    Not only is this a common experience but a great opportunity for growth. Clients express a feeling of discomfort or responsibility when they don’t have anything on top of mind. Often, this can lead to working through something important that they may not have expected. Allow your clinician to help guide and support you in these moments.
  • What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy theorizes that how we think determines how we feel and behave. Therefore, if we can reframe our negative/distorted thoughts with reason and repetition, we can improve mood and engage in more desired behavior. CBT aims to increase awareness of these distorted cognitions and offers alternative perspectives and behaviors that reduce psychological distress.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    While we do not accept insurance, we do provide an invoice for each session that can be submitted to insurance. Many insurance providers reimburse a significant portion of our fee.
  • How long will I/my child be in therapy?
    We understand therapy is a substantial time and financial commitment. Therapy duration ranges depending on several factors. We consider establishing rapport, age of client, introduction or management of medication, accessibility to the strategies, intensity of symptoms, and parent support. While there isn’t a clear answer, there is frequent communication to acknowledge how close we are to achieving the client’s goal. We believe the ultimate goal is to help the client achieve autonomy when using the strategies outside the therapy room.
  • What happens if my child is resistant?
    It is common for a child to feel conflicted about attending therapy. This can stem from a previous experience that didn’t feel right, a lack of awareness of his/her struggle, or fear about meeting a mental health professional. We offer ways to present therapy to your child that can soften the discomfort, and we work hard to quickly but gently disarm your child, putting him/her more at ease.
  • How quickly can I get an appointment?
    Depending on your flexibility of schedule, most clients can have an appointment within one week of contact.
  • Do you have a cancellation policy?
    Yes, we are so glad you asked! A cancellation that occurs less than 24 hours from your scheduled appointment time will result in a full charge, unless the time slot has been filled.
