What should I expect for my first appointment?

If you were unable to fill out your paperwork on our client portal system, you will need to come 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork so that you have time for your whole session. Your therapist will retrieve you from the waiting room for your appointment.

What does a relationship expert do?

A therapist trained in couples and family therapy can clarify how to create happier and healthier relationships. By understanding your relational patterns, subjective interpretations, and the powerful and often unconscious marital map that fuels them, significant change is possible.

How much does therapy cost?

Most therapy services are covered by insurance, and the only cost to the individual will be the co-pay. If you would like to know what your co-pay will be, please call the number on the back of your insurance card.

For services not covered by insurance, or for those who do not have or want to use insurance, our therapists offer private pay fees for service.

Who will know that I am coming for therapy or coaching?

Our client’s relationships to their therapist and the center is a private matter. All information is kept strictly confidential.

How long are therapy sessions?

Therapy sessions are 45 minutes long.

How often will I attend therapy sessions?

Your therapist will work with you to develop a plan that best fits your individual needs.

If I want to bring my child in for therapy, do I have to attend too?

If you would like to bring your child in for therapy, at least one parent or guardian must be in attendance. It is most helpful, however, if each member of the family is able to attend. If you have questions or concerns about this, please discuss them with your therapist.

Can you provide a mental health evaluation for court purposes?

We are unable to provide this service.

Do you have a practitioner who can prescribe medications?

We do not provide this service. To find a practitioner who is covered by your insurance, please call your insurance company.

Do I have to come to the window to check in at every appointment?

No. After you are established with your therapist you may make yourself comfortable in the waiting room. If you are waiting past your appointment time, please inquire at the window.

What do I need to bring with me on my first appointment?

Please bring your insurance card to the window. The office will make a copy.

What are your office hours? Do you do weekend appointments?

All of the therapists make their own appointments. They try to be accommodating and may have limited availability during unconventional hours. You will have to discuss this with your therapist.
