Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness, and working towards change in their lives.

Do I really need therapy?
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.

Do you accept insurance?
Therapeutic Services 4 Children and Families is a fee for service clinic so payment is collected at the time of service.  If you have mental health coverage on your medical insurance plan you may be able to get reimbursement for a percentage of the counseling fees.  To determine if you have such coverage, the first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions: What are my mental health benefits? What is the coverage amount per therapy session? How many therapy sessions does my plan cover? How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Is therapy confidential?

However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include: Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately. If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. The therapist is required to notify the police. If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
