How long will therapy take?
Your healing and self-discovery are very personal processes. In our personal and professional opinions, there is pre-determined time for your therapy to be over. Some people begin to feel relief of symptoms after a few sessions, but when you have faced certain struggles or have adapted for a long time, the process could take much longer to feel more solid in oneself, to allow yourself time to put into practice your new awareness. Each session is usually 50 minutes long. Research shows that coming to therapy on a regular, consistent basis is most effective for change to occur. Many people attend therapy on a weekly basis, some every other week, and some a couple of times per week. We will work together to decide your needs.
How much does therapy cost?
Therapy is an investment to yourself. Our fees range from $90-150, depending on the type of service and which clinician you’re working with. We don't take insurance but can provide a receipt of payment for those wanting to see about being reimbursed by their insurance. It is up to you to inquire about what your insurance will cover.
How could you ever really understand me?
We aren’t going to pretend that we fully know what your experiences have been like. While we do have professional training in the field of psychology, along with our own life experiences, we always believe and trust that you know yourself best. Sometimes we just need a witness and some space to discover those hidden parts within us! Your therapist’s part in the healing process is to journey with you and help sort out some of the messiness of life in order to bring into awareness what has gotten lost in the shadows.
