What are the benefits of working with a counselor?
A number of benefits are available from participating. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Counseling can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from counseling depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. It can also depend on how well you and your therapist connect. So, it's important to make sure that you feel comfortable with your therapist.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance or participate in any insurance plans. I can supply receipts that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I do accept health savings account cards.
There is a confusing array of insurance arrangements. The first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully. Do you have mental health benefits? How many sessions per calendar year does your plan cover? What is your deductible? Please see my Rates & Insurance page for additional information.
