All the Answers You Seek, In One Place
HOW DO I KNOW THAT THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR ME? ISN'T THERAPY REALLY FOR PEOPLE WITH "REAL" ISSUES?
Coming in for therapy has always had negative connotations, but therapy is really a good option for those who are looking to resolve those problems within their relationships that seem impossible. Whether it be communication issues or severe problems that impact your relationships, therapy can be the answer you need.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
Our therapeutic journey is dependent on the work you put forth in and out of our appointments. The more work you put in, the less time we will spend together.
I WANT TO COME IN TO SEE A COUPLES COUNSELOR, BUT I WORRIED MY SPOUSE WON'T COME
In order to provide Couples Therapy both partners need to be there for the sessions. Granted there may be times when we can do individual sessions, but that is only when therapeutically necessary. But without both partners available, it doesn't allow for effective change to occur within the relationship. We may be able to work on an individual level to help with coping skills and as your therapeutic process goes well, your partner may open up towards coming to our sessions.
WHY DON'T YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Insurance companies require a formal diagnosis to be given in order to provide coverage. Even if you don't present with a psychological diagnosis, one must be provided. The diagnosis that is given would be placed on your medical records. Here at Cloud Nine we don't believe in labels, therefore, we prefer not to take insurance. If you want to learn more about my philosophy and why I don't take insurance, check out my FEES & INSURANCE INFORMATION page.
ISN'T THERAPY EXPENSIVE?
My rates and fees are competitive to those in the area. I do work with my clients who need financial assistance and our therapy packages also allow for additional savings. Therapy may not be seen as a needed service, but you would go to the doctor for a routine check-up, why shouldn't you do the same for your relationship?
