There is a pathway from where you are to where you want to be. We believe counseling is a process of discovery, full of learning and growth.
The First Session
There are times in life we all get lost, stuck, or hurt and find ourselves not knowing how to move forward. We long for something different and have no idea how to get there. Personal growth is a journey. A counselor is a guide through the most difficult parts. Our job is to help you find your way toward the life you are longing for and how to overcome the obstacles in your path.
Finding the right counselor is like finding a good friend. You often know right away if you connect, even if it takes time to build trust in the relationship. The first session is about discovering if you and your counselor connect as a team and exploring your goals for therapy.
We have new client forms we ask clients to fill out through our HIPPA compliant web portal. Your private health information is stored as securely as any hospital or other medical profession. Once logged into our web portal, you will be provided specifics on how we protect your health information and our practice policies. Our intake questionnaire provides us with important information including your goals for counseling, physical symptoms you may be experiencing, medical history, treatment history, and other important details. If you are unable to fill out these forms online for some reason, just let us know and we can provide you with paper copies.
Sessions fees are based on income and range from $60 to $110 an hour. Fees are a due at the beginning of each session. It does not matter how many people are in the session, the fee is the same.
Sessions last around 50 minutes. Extended sessions are available and are prorated by 15 minute increments. We take all major credit cards as well as check and cash. We do not accept insurance at this time. Cancellations are required to be 24 hours in advance of your session. Clients are responsible for the full fee of missed sessions or sessions canceled within 24 hours.
