What's the difference between counseling and therapy?
Many people use the terms counseling and therapy interchangeably, but they are different. Both focus on problem solving or on learning specific techniques for coping with problem areas. Counseling is usually more short-term than therapy. Therapy is more long-term than counseling and focuses on a broader range of issues.
What is coaching?
A coach helps the client to achieve their personal best and to produce the results they want in their personal and professional lives. Coaching ensures the client can give their best, learn effectively, and develop in the way they wish. Coaching does not include treatment of a mental health disorder.
How much do services cost?
The cost of your service depends on factors such as insurance coverage, length of time receiving services, and financial need. Sessions start at $65.00 when paying out of pocket. Clients typically see the therapist once a week. Regardless of the cost, receiving help from a professional is a financial investment in your future. Your health, well-being, and financial stability depend on your ability to manage day to day stressors and life changes. The more equipped you are, the better off you will be for years to come.
How long will I need to work with the therapist?
The length of our time working together depends on the complexity of your problems, how hard you work to change problematic thoughts and behaviors, and if any new stressors arise while you are receiving services. Clients usually see the therapist once a week for a couple of months, and then sessions are spaced out a bit. It is ultimately up to the client to determine when they want to stop seeing the therapist. You can always receive more services at a later time if the need arises.
