Frequently Asked Questions
What does the counseling process look like?
In the first appointment, your counselor will discuss with you your reasons for seeking therapy, ask questions about your personal history and background, and discuss what results you hope to achieve. In subsequent sessions, it is our goal to assist you in working through your presenting problem, as well as explore the root causes of your struggles.
How does confidentiality work in a professional counseling relationship?
Counseling often involves sharing sensitive and personal information. In recognition of this, ethical guidelines, as well as state and federal laws, require that all interactions between a client and counselor remain confidential. This includes your records, the content of your sessions, and our appointment schedule. I will take the utmost care to protect your privacy and confidentiality. The only three exceptions to confidentiality are 1) a client requests in writing (Release of Information) that their counseling records be shared with a specific individual or another professional; 2) a client poses a clear and imminent danger to themselves or to others; or 3) a client discloses that physical or sexual abuse or neglect has occurred to a minor or an elderly person.
How long is each session? How long should counseling last?
Each session is usually 50 minutes to an hour in length. The length of the counseling relationship will always depend on the particular person/couple and the particular circumstances. Generally, the average length of time in counseling is 6-12 sessions. The frequency of sessions will depend upon a number of factors—individual needs, client and counselor’s availability, and finances.
How much does it cost?
The cost is $80 per session. The cost is the same per session for individuals, couples, or families. Payment is expected at the time of services unless prior arrangements have been made.
