Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Payments Collected?

I accept cash and credit card. Payment is due at the beginning of the session.

Do You Accept Insurance?

Yes. Purposeful Counseling accepts United Healthcare and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Do You Offer A Sliding Scale Rate?

No. We do not offer sliding scale rates.

I see you offer a Free 15 minute Consultation. I love free! But what is it?

The 15 minute consultation is for NEW CLIENTS only.  It is a chance for us to meet before actually having our first session.  This is where you can ask questions and get familiar with your therapist and vice versa. First sessions can be scary, here is what you can look forward to.

How Long Will I Be In Therapy?

Therapy is tailored to an individual and there is no set time for therapy to end. Some people are in therapy for 3 months, others attend for over a year. Treatment depends on the goals you want to work on and the frequency of attendance (once a week, bi-weekly, once a month, etc.).  First time to therapy?  Here’s a handy guide to help!

You Mentioned EMDR. What Is That?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.  This type of therapy is used to help lessen post-traumatic stress distress (PTSD) symptoms.  EMDR is also used to treat other mood and anxiety disorders, including depression, phobias, and panic disorders.  EMDR work with relationship problems, chemical dependency, and grief and loss – just to name a few.  Want more info on EMDR?  Click here.

Can you tell me more about Telehealth/online therapy?

Absolutely! TeleHealth is conducted online via video chat and is convenient because you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. EMDR therapy will not work with online therapy as of right now. This is only for couples and individual therapy not involving EMDR.

I'm interested in therapy packages. When is payment due for the packages?

Payment can be paid in full or you can be set up on a payment plan.  If on a payment plan, a deposit of $130 must be paid prior to first session. Depending on the packet, certain number of payments will be set up. Payment must be paid in full 2 sessions before termination. Additional sessions will be $125/each.  Have more questions?
