insurance

We are a private pay practice and are not considered in network with any insurance providers. This means that we are “Out of Network.” We can offer you a monthly statement that you may provide to your insurance company for possible out of network reimbursement. You will need to contact your insurer to discuss your policy prior to scheduling an appointment to ensure benefits.


Q: HOW LONG WILL THERAPY LAST?

A: Some people come to therapy forr 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. 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 session, and may change during the course of therapy. If you have questions about group therapy and how it might be helpful, visit our GirlTalk Therapy page that is all about group therapy, its benefits and who might be a good candidate for our groups. You can also look through our general Group Therapy page for other offerings that might meet your needs. 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 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. 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. It is not just for the "troubled" or for those who have big "problems" and "issues." We believe that anyone can benefit from having a safe place to reflect, explore and share. We believe that there should be an on-going dialogue during the course of therapy, from initial contact to termination, about the process, goals and how it is working. To begin, you can call 512-651-5598 and leave a voicemail in our general mailbox and expect a call back in one to two days from a therapist who might be a good fit for you. You can also send a message from our contact page. A therapist will either call or email you back to schedule a time to talk on the phone. Your first point of contact will be with a therapist. While this person may or may not be the right fit for you, they will be able to help you clarify what you are needing and looking for and point you in the right direction!
