Q: Who goes to therapy?
A: Anyone who would like to better their life or heal from specific issues.
Q: What is the first session like?
A:First, it is normal to feel nervous to meet someone you are expected to “disclose” very vulnerable information. The first session, you will be able to share what brings you into therapy and what therapy goals you would like to accomplish. In addition, I will also ask many questions to help me understand you as a unique individual. Since therapy is a collaborative process, the first session will also help us both get a sense if we are a good fit in your healing process.
Q: What is therapy like?
A: Every therapy session is made unique by keeping the overall client goals in mind. It is typical for therapists to discuss client’s primary issues and concerns in life during therapy sessions. At the beginning of therapy the first few sessions is to gather a history of the problem, assessing for depression as well as looking into the whole picture. The client will be very active in the treatment plan.
Q: How much does therapy cost?
A: Therapy for families offers competitive rates in The Woodlands, Clearlake and Cypress location. Currently, the charge is $150.00 for a 50- minute session, the first session is slightly more, $175.00. Therapy for families accepts church payments. Unfortunately, insurance is not being accepted; however, you can bill your own insurance as out of network. Payment is made in cash, by checks, HSA, credit cards.
I am considered an out of network insurance provider meaning the client will still pay upfront for therapy services and I will provide you with a “superbill” for you so you can submit to your insurance company.
Q: How long does treatment last?
A: Treatment is based on the client’s problem. The client will be active part in making the treatment plan which will address goals in therapy, therapy modality, as well as frequency. Research shows that clients feel a difference in average of three months. Therapy is not a quick fix; however, it will give you tools that last as long as they are being used.
