Therapy For Adults

Does any of this sound like you?

  • You're hiding your pain inside yourself.

  • You're lonely and cannot connect and belong.

  • You need to get better at managing your behavior, thoughts and feelings.

  • You struggle with common mental illnesses (anxiety, depression, bipolar, BPD or other possible disorders).

  • Substance abuse, whether acknowledged or not.

  • You are a survivor of sexual, physical or emotional abuse and/or other trauma.

These are things we can confidently help you manage or fix.

"You can have peace. If you want it."

Therapy for
Teens and Parents

Parents must take care of themselves too.

All adults have problems.  When those problems include your child's problems, it can be terrifying for parents. When combined with other issues things can become unmanageable.

Help yourself to help your child:

  • Get your own support when you need it

  • Learn about teens and parenting

  • Know that help is there for you too...

Couples Counseling and
Marriage Therapy

Relationships that thrive don't just happen. They are created and lovingly nourished with hard work and understanding.

Sometimes that hard work can be augmented with couples therapy.  

In couples therapy, we carefully reinforce each partner's commitment and understanding.  You can learn to see through your partner's eyes, and know that your partner shares that same level of empathy for you.

 

Couples therapy shouldn't be verbal combat with a referee; we don't do that. It's a thoughtful exploration of what is truly important and how the basis of conflict can be understood, anticipated, and managed.

Group Therapy

Changing behavior and understanding

Clinicians listen, learn, diagnose, teach and solve problems. Beyond understanding, there is practice, perspective, and real-time feedback on changes. We do this with groups.

Groups help with internalizing skills and new perspectives through feedback and practice. That's best with behavioral learning, trauma processing, and management of symptoms.

Think of it this way.  If you want to learn to ride a motorcycle you can read books, jump on a bike, crash and never do it again.  Or you can take a class with instructor and group, learn through doing, and love it forever.

Kids have all the problems adults have.... and a few more.

Their bodies and brains are rapidly changing. The social, emotional, and performance demands placed on them are not apparent to parents.

Watch and get help with:

  • Risky behavior

  • Interpersonal behavior problems

  • Withdrawal and escapism from family or social environments

  • Self-sabotaging behavior

  • Irritability

  • Volatility

  • Self-harm

About Insurance
 

We do not accept insurance for direct payment. You are responsible for paying all service bills at the start of each individual and couples session.  Group services are paid upfront for all sessions in each module.

Insurance plans often have restrictions on mental health benefits which can limit care and options. We believe it's important that mental health services are based on what is genuinely needed and not driven by insurance companies.

However, if you would like to use insurance and have out-of-network benefits, you may be able to receive reimbursement from your insurance company in part or in full. 

We support clients with the administration of insurance claims by submitting bills on your behalf to your insurance provider. Many of our clients enjoy this complimentary service, as they don’t have to deal with the paperwork and get reimbursed much faster by their insurance company.

 

Please check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-network benefits. Please note that most insurance plans do not cover services provided by pre-licensed therapists.

When you contact your insurance provider, here are questions to ask them to verify how your plan compensates you for therapy services:

 

- Do I have out of network benefits? 

- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
-  Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
-  Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
-  Do my out of network benefits cover the following CPT codes: 90791, 90837, 90834, and 90853?
-  If I do have out of network benefits, at what % will I be reimbursed?
