COMMON QUESTIONS

How can therapy really help?
There are many benefits that one can receive from entering into therapy. Therapists provide non-judgemental support, help you gain clarity, and work through life challenges and make sense of thoughts and feelings.
Therapists are trained in different areas.  Chlidren and adults can get great help with working through behavioral concerns, grief, depression, anxiety, family issues, and everyday life stressors. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on difficult problems.
Do you take insurance? How does that work?
I am paneled with several insurance companies.  Call to determine if I am a provider for your plan.  Some questions you can ask when you call your insurance company:
 
 
  • What are my out of network mental health benefits?
  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount for an in-office therapy session?
  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
What about medication vs. psychotherapy?

Research has shown that in some cases emotional and mental health problems can be approached with therapy and medication. Therapy helps to look at the root causes of your discomfort, instead of treating just the symptoms.

 

Tell your medical physician what you are experiencing.  An integrated approach might be what you need.
