What can I expect in my first therapy session?
Your first session is about getting to know your therapist, discussing your concerns, and setting goals for your therapy. It’s a time for mutual understanding and for you to ask any questions you might have.
How long does each therapy session last?
Typically, each session lasts about 50-60 minutes. However, this can vary depending on the type of therapy and the individual needs.
Is everything I say confidential?
Yes, confidentiality is a key component of therapy. Information shared in sessions is kept private, with certain legal exceptions that your therapist will explain, such as harm to self or others.
How often will I need to attend sessions?
The frequency of sessions depends on your unique needs, treatment plan, and progress. This can vary from weekly to biweekly, or less frequently, and will be determined collaboratively with your therapist.
Do you offer virtual or teletherapy sessions?
Yes, we offer virtual sessions to accommodate clients who prefer or require remote services. Please inquire about the setup and how you can arrange for teletherapy appointments.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept various forms of payment, including credit cards, cash, and insurance where applicable. Please contact our office for more detailed information on fees and billing.
Can I choose my therapist or switch if needed?
Yes, we aim for a good therapeutic match. If you wish to work with a specific therapist or change therapists for any reason, we will accommodate your preferences to the best of our ability.
What is your cancellation policy?
Typically, we require 24-48 hours’ notice for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. Please refer to our specific policy for more details.
How do I know if I need therapy?
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, struggling with mental health issues, facing life transitions, or simply wish to explore personal growth, therapy might be beneficial. We’re happy to discuss your specific situation to see how we can help.
Do you provide emergency or crisis services?
Our clinic does not offer immediate crisis services. If you are experiencing an emergency, please call a local emergency number or a crisis hotline. For ongoing support, we can discuss setting up regular therapy sessions.
