Does going to therapy mean I am weak?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I'll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.
What is the difference of talking to a friend vs a therapist?
The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won't have to worry about others "knowing my business." Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, and you've been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren't reminded of this difficult time in your life.
How long with this take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone's circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place. The frequency of therapy can last from 8 sessions to 2 years. One of the things we do is prepare you for discharge from session one therefore as you get stronger with your tools, even if you may have started attending sessions weekly or biweekly, your plan may change to sessions every 3 weeks to maintenance once a month and then PRN (as needed) before discharge.
Do you accept insurance?
We are private pay only
Do you provide in person appointments?
We provide telehealth (video/phone) sessions and find that this gives so much freedom and flexibility to our clients.
Is this practice Christ-Centered?
Yes! We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, Holy Spirit is the best Counselor and God is the King of Kings, a Holy God. We believe the Bible as the only truth and standard by which we should live our lives. We believe Jesus is the only way to heaven. When clients combine their faith in Jesus in therapy, the changes are amazing and the outcomes are successful. We also notice a higher sense of hopefulness and meaningfulness to life.
Do I have to be a Christian to be a client?
Oh No! We work with Christians and non-Christians. We believe in honoring you, and serving you with compassion regardless of your faith.
