Why Do Therapy
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Q. What's this all about anyway?
A. In short, therapy is about talking with somebody who pays careful attention to not only what you're saying, but also how you feel and how your body reacts.
Q. How often?
A. Usually once a week for 50 minutes at a time. Some people do extra sessions a week or longer sessions, especially if doing couples' work.
Q. How long does this last?
A. Some people prefer a handful of sessions, others go for years.
Q. What's so special about this?
A. For one, confidentiality. You can explore thoughts and feelings without worrying how they affect the people in your life. What you say in therapy stays there and is only discussed in supervision, or if other exceptions are necessary.
Q. What exceptions?
A. For example, a report is required in cases in which a child, elder or dependent adult is at risk of abuse or neglect. A report is sometimes required in cases where you or another individual is at risk.
Q. How much does this cost? Do you take insurance?
A. I'm currently offering an extremely affordable sliding scale fee based on net monthly income. If you're willing to share that amount, I can let you know what the fee would be per hour.
While our group is not currently taking insurance, my fellow intern is hoping to start applying for insurance panels in the coming months so if that's what happens, I can let you know or we can switch from private pay to insurance at that time.
Even now, if your insurance company is willing to cover out-of-network providers, you can check with them about receiving services from a marriage and family therapist intern and I can provide an invoice for reimbursement.
