We offer individual, group, couples and family therapy for all ages. We are a family-systems practice, which means we view you in the context of your relationships, culture, life experience and circumstances, rather than someone who is broken and needs to be fixed. Some specific needs we meet include support for:
Senior Therapists (Blake, Tracy & Sarah): $150/45-minute session.
Associate Therapists: $125/45-minute session. Sliding scale available for those with financial need. Please let us know if you are interested in this option and our Client Care Coordinator can walk you through the process.
Fees vary per group based on how many sessions per trimester and the length of the group, but are based on an average of $50/60-minute session. Since you enroll in the group for the trimester, the full trimester fees are due at the first group meeting, regardless of attendance. This helps to ensure continuity and group cohesion, and regular attendance is critical for the benefit of each participant and the group as a whole. We do offer payment plans. We are out-of-network for insurance providers but can offer you a superbill at the end of the group trimester to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.
We are a private pay practice and are not considered in network with any insurance providers. This means that we are “Out of Network (OON)” and you will pay at the time of service. We can offer you a monthly statement that you may provide to your insurance company for possible out of network reimbursement, which requires a mental health diagnosis that your therapist will discuss with you. You need to contact your insurer to ensure benefits and coverage. FSA/HSA cards accepted.
It’s quick and easy to get started with a therapist! Once you submit a request online or by phone at 512-651-5598, our Client Care Coordinator will help match you with a good fit who has availability to meet with you within the week whenever possible. If you know who you want to work with, she will have the therapist contact you directly within 24 hours to schedule. You don’t have to wait to get the support you need.
Q: How long will therapy last?
A: Some people come to therapy for just a few sessions and others come over a period of years. Sometimes therapy sessions are held weekly, sometimes biweekly and occasionally monthly. Session frequency and duration of therapy depends on how things are going, what your current needs are and what your therapist recommends, and will be discussed on an ongoing basis. Most often, you will schedule weekly appointments in the beginning and transition to less frequent sessions over time. We find that regular sessions initially help to ensure you get your needs met and form a strong partnership with your therapist. Research supports beginning with weekly therapy for a minimum of 6 months whenever possible, to really create and sustain the desired changes.
Q: I'M AN ADULT AND LOOKING FOR INDIVIDUAL THERAPY. I'M NOT SURE ABOUT HAVING MY FAMILY IN SESSION WITH ME. DO YOU SEE ADULTS BY THEMSELVES?
A: Family systems is the lens in which we, as therapists, view the world and our experiences in it. We believe that we are interconnected. That we are shaped by, and in turn we shape our families, our cultures and our communities. While you may be the sole person in the room, aside from your therapist, the family will undoubtedly "enter" the room at some point through discussion, exploration and sharing. At times, it could be helpful to bring in a family member to work through a particular issue but this is not always necessary in the work with adults. Your therapist will be your guide as you decide what is best for you and your situation.
Q: I'M NOT SURE IF MY CHILD OR TEEN NEEDS GROUP OR INDIVIDUAL THERAPY OR MAYBE WE NEED FAMILY THERAPY or parent coaching. HOW DO WE CHOOSE?
A: This is a great question! The answer is that it might be one, two or all of the above. This can be determined during the initial phone call followed by an in person intake assessment session, and may change during the course of therapy. Group therapy can be a wonderful way to strengthen interpersonal skills as well as learning more about yourself in the context of relationships. Individual therapy can be helpful when you or your child really need someone to talk to one-on-one, and to build a deep connection with a therapist who can walk with you on your healing journey. Family therapy can support families in repairing their relationships, building closer connections, recovering from divorce or remarriage, or navigating illness and mental health challenges that impact the whole family system. Parent Coaching can be a focused, skill-building adjunct to one or more therapy modalities or a standalone service to help parents navigate the challenges of raising children of all ages. These approaches to therapy can also work collaboratively, and many clients find benefit from utilizing a combination of services.
Q: I'M NEW TO THERAPY. HOW DOES THIS WORK?
A: We believe that therapy should be accessible to all people, for all reasons. We believe that anyone can benefit from having a safe place to reflect, explore and share, no matter your circumstances, life experience, or way of defining yourself. Therapy can be a place to work towards specific goals, manage difficulties, strengthen relationships, get to know yourself better, find more joy & fulfillment in life, cope with mental health issues, and learn how to live your life with more self-compassion & connection. We believe that there should be an ongoing dialogue during the course of therapy about the process, goals and what’s working or needs changing. To get started, you can submit a request online or call 512-651-5598 and leave a voicemail in our general mailbox and our Client Care Coordinator will guide you through the simple process of finding a great therapist for you and getting started with your first appointment.
