Can therapy help me?
I believe therapy has the potential to be beneficial to all. That being said, it’s important that you find the right fit. Each therapist will approach your concerns differently and may have slightly different means to the same goals. What we know from research is that the most important part of therapy is having a trusting and secure relationship with your therapist. Although you may be intrigued by different therapy models (which can be helpful) if you find a therapist who feels like a right fit, that will have the greatest impact on your experience in therapy.
Will my insurance cover our session?
No. I am out of network with insurance providers, but you can contact your insurance company and ask them about your “out-of-network mental health benefits.” I can provide you with a superbill if you would like to submit your payments for possible reimbursement regarding your out of network benefits.
Forms of payment?
All payment is due at the time of your session. In Tandem Counseling, Inc. accepts cash, personal checks, or credit cards including most HSA/FSA cards.
Will you prescribe me medication?
No. I am a master’s level therapists and do not have the ability to prescribe medication. I can help you find a local psychiatrist, doctor, or naturopath if you have questions or needs for medications and/or supplements.
How long does therapy take?
This depends on what you are hoping to get from therapy when you first arrive. Our goal is always to have you feeling happy and healthy and ready to take on the world without us! That being said, some areas of struggle may take longer to address than others.
What if I cannot make it to a session?
If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so 24 hours or more in advance. If you cancel less than 24 hours before your session you will be charged a $160 late cancel fee which will be due on or before your next session.
Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
Yes. There are a few limitations to your confidentiality that we will discuss in more detail at your first session which include safety and court orders. Apart from that, therapy is a space for you to trust that what you say is confidential.
