How long and how many times
a week is a typical session?
Sessions are usually 45 minutes. Most clients are seen once or twice
a week in the beginning, then, as time goes on, less frequently. The
number of sessions depends on what your current needs are.
How long will I be in counseling?
The length of time a client is in counseling depends the nature of the
problem and the goals of the counseling. Some clients have a very specific
problem that can be worked through in a set course of counseling. For
others, counseling is an on-going learning process and they choose to
receive counseling for a longer period.
What if I want couples
counseling, but my partner won't come?
Unfortunately, sometimes one partner is not as willing as the other
to come in for counseling. However, we often find that it is possible
to improve the relationship with just one person involved in counseling.
How much are your fees
and do you take insurance?
Your fee depends on the kinds of services you request. We accept Anthem
BCBS, United Healthcare/UBH, Aetna, Cigna, MAMSI, Tricare, and PHCS.
Please contact us for more information.
Do I need to take
As counselors and therapists, we are not legally allowed to prescribe
medications. However, based on a joint assessment of problems you are
facing, it may be advisable to consult with a psychiatrist to determine
whether medication is warranted. Typically, clients see someone under
their health insurance coverage or we can refer you to a psychiatrist.
