Frequently Asked Questions
It is normal to have questions about therapy especially if you have never been before. These are a few common questions that many have before coming to our psychotherapy practice for the first time. Feel free to contact us should you have other questions you would like answered.
Should I be nervous about coming to counseling sessions?
Each and every person responds differently but there is no right or wrong. If you feel nervous, that is okay. If you don’t feel nervous, that is okay too. Our goal is to help you overcome the obstacles you are experiencing in a professional, confidential manner.
When, how often and how long are therapy sessions?
We will schedule sessions based upon our schedules, your needs and your therapeutic goals. Most often, clients come once per week for a one-hour session; however, some clients need or desire sessions every other week. When working with families, two-hour sessions are often helpful. If you ever feel like you need more or less therapy, feel free to express your concerns.
Grace & Peace Counseling is committed to help you reach your goals.
How much does therapy cost? Do you take insurance?
Therapy costs are determined by each therapist. Call today for a free consultation and your therapist will be happy to discuss costs associated with counseling. Let us know if you want to discuss a payment plan. We accept cash, check or credit cards. We accept some insurance and often provide out-of-network or self-pay clients.
Some of our therapists do accept insurance. Call today to see if we accept your insurance. If you use a therapist who does not take your insurance, we are able to provide a superbill for your convenience. This is a form that depicts the services and charges that you can submit to your insurance. This does not guarantee reimbursement.
Reimbursement is based on your individual insurance company.
Do you prescribe medication?
We do not prescribe medication. We are familiar with many psychotropic medications used and we can talk about your concerns in therapy; however, your prescribing physician is the only person (including yourself) that should make any changes to your medication therapy.
What should I expect when I come to therapy?
During our first few counseling sessions we will talk about your current life situation and make some goals during our time together. We will identify your strengths and growth areas. We will also make decisions about who would be beneficial to include in your counseling services.
