Who Goes to Therapy?
What Can Therapy Do For Me?
Therapy is about helping you become the person you were created to be. A trained therapist is someone who can come alongside you in a therapeutic alliance and help you to achieve the things you have been struggling to achieve on your own. Practically speaking, therapy can help you to
Increase coping strategies
Increase communication and negotiation skills
Increase self awareness
Increase awareness of strengths
Process difficult situations like grief and loss or the experience of a traumatic event
Deal with family and childhood issues
Learn to be assertive
Learn to recover from eating disorders, eat intuitively or deal with a poor body image
Does therapy work?
Studies indicate that people treated through therapy are better off than 80% of people with similar levels of problems who do not receive therapy. Consumer Reports reviewed the effectiveness of therapy by analyzing surveys from 2,125 respondents who visited a mental health professional for depression or anxiety. Respondents reported a 70% improvement in emotional functioning after 1-6 sessions and almost an 80% improvement after 13 or more sessions.
How much does counseling cost?
$130 per 45 minute session, $160 for a 60 minute session. Longer sessions are available as needed.
If you have out-of-network benefits with your insurance, I can provide you with an invoice which can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How long does counseling last?
The counseling session lasts 45 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes for a double session. Double sessions are especially helpful for couples at the beginning of therapy to reduce stress and tension quickly. Most clients prefer to come in weekly when their concerns are acute. However, appointments may be scheduled less frequently as needed. Nancy believes in having solutions oriented therapy sessions that are focused on your goals. It is important to realize that therapy can take some work on your part, and a bit of patience, but it does not have to be a process that takes a long time. It is a myth that therapy must last several months or years to be effective. Therapy does work, and clients often see some improvement within the first few sessions.
What if I can’t make my counseling appointment or if I need to cancel?
Since scheduling of a relationship counselling appointment involves the reservation of a time specifically for you, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for rescheduling or cancelling an appointment. A $65 fee will be charged for sessions missed without such notification. Of course, Nancy would be happy to reschedule your appointment when you provide more than 24 hours notice.
