Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know you are the right therapist for me?
What will happen the first session?
Most importantly, in that first session, you will begin making a connection with your therapist. You should feel safe, accepted, respected, and relatively comfortable. Not all therapists are right for every person, so use your first session to assess whether or not the therapist you chose feels like a good match for your personality.
How long and frequent are sessions?
Do you accept insurance and what are my payment options?
What about confidentiality?
Danger to self or others:
All states allow a therapist to reveal the name of a client who is deemed a real and present danger to self (e.g., suicide) or others. The therapist is also required to warn or attempt to protect the person against whom the threats are being made.
Abuse of children, elderly, or mentally or physically handicapped:
A therapist is required to report credible knowledge of current or past abuse. This applies to situations in which the client is the one who was abused as well as to situations in which the client is the abuser.
