FAQs

Do you accept insurance for payment?

No, we do not accept insurance. We are a private pay practice. Depending on your policy, you may have an Out of Network (OON) benefit for seeing out of network providers. This would allow you to submit receipts to your policy for partial reimbursement from sessions.  You can call your insurance company to find out about your plan.

We accept all major debit/credit cards as forms of payment. We also accept HSA and FSA cards. Please reach out if you have any questions.

How will I know if it is time to engage in couples therapy?

Couples who have reached the point of a repeated conflict cycle and unhappy couples who are on the brink of a breakup are common therapy cases for us. If you are looking for tools to work through relationship problems therapy can provide hands-on resources.

How will I know if I am ready to engage in individual therapy?

Typically, clients start individual therapy when they notice that a problem interfering with their emotional or physical well being. Therapists provide a safe space for clients to explore what is bothering them and provide some ideas about ways to feel better. Some clients want to address problems caused by unresolved trauma and some want to discuss how they can take better care of themselves.

How long are therapy sessions?

Therapy sessions are scheduled in intervals of 50-60 minutes. Some couples prefer 90 minute sessions, which can be accommodated.

​How many sessions should I plan to attend? How often?

We suggest that new clients attend sessions weekly at the start of treatment, then once you have started to build momentum with your therapist you can start to space sessions to biweekly, and possibly monthly before terminating. A minimum of 10 sessions is suggested depending on your treatment goals, but many clients decide to continue treatment for longer periods of time.

Why don't you accept insurance?

We have accepted insurance in the past but found it to be out of alignment with treatment of our clients. Insurance policies only cover services that are deemed medically necessary for as long as they consider it medically necessary. Our practice focuses on treating couples and trauma- which have courses of treatment that can be long term. In order for the therapist and client to be in charge of the course of treatment and type of treatment, we operate outside of insurance panels. Insurance companies require clients to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder and this can also be problematic for treatment because we believe that every client does not need a clinical diagnosis, especially with couples therapy.
