Due to the nature of counseling, the number of sessions cannot be predicted. Research shows that the majority of clients need a minimum of eight to twelve sessions in order to achieve a lasting benefit from counseling. In addition, research indicates that beginning with weekly sessions yields the best output. You and your counselor will work together to create an individualized treatment plan. As counselors, we are committed to not keeping anyone in therapy longer than they need to be there.
We use multiple theories based on the specifics of each individual client and whether they are family, couple, child, adolescent, or adult. This is not an exhaustive list but a few of them are:
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) helps improve the mood, anxiety and behavior by examining confused or distorted patterns of thinking. CBT therapists teach clients that thoughts cause feelings and moods which can influence behavior. During CBT, a client learns to identify harmful thought patterns. The therapist then helps the client replace this thinking with thoughts that result in more appropriate feelings and behaviors. Research shows that CBT can be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including abuse, PTSD, depression and anxiety.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) can be used to treat older adolescents and adults who have chronic suicidal feelings/thoughts, engage in intentionally self-harmful behaviors or have Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT emphasizes taking responsibility for one’s problems and helps the person examine how they deal with conflict and intense negative emotions.
Play Therapy involves the use of toys, blocks, dolls, puppets, drawings and games to help the child recognize, identify, and verbalize feelings. The therapist observes how the child uses play materials and identifies themes or patterns to understand the child’s problems. Through a combination of talk and play the child has an opportunity to better understand and manage their conflicts, feelings, and behavior.
Group Therapy is a form of therapy where there are multiple clients and uses the power of group dynamics and peer interactions to increase understanding of social skills and other various topics. Each group is designed for a specific topic.

Yes, absolutely! We are happy to accept these types of accounts.
We are considered an out-of-network provider. Please contact your insurance provider to determine what your actual cost of counseling would be. Historically, our clients have received 50-80% reimbursement from their insurance companies if they had out-of-network coverage for psychotherapy. Our services are able to be applied to your deductible. We will provide you with a detailed statement in order for you to file for reimbursement with your insurance carrier.
This is often a concern for parents. A diagnosis will have to be given to your child in order for you to be reimbursed under insurance. Individuals will also require a diagnosis.
Most insurance companies do not cover marriage counseling, couples therapy, or premarital counseling. Please call and verify with your insurance provider, but normally they only cover psychotherapy and family psychotherapy, but not marriage or couples counseling.
