  • What is therapy?
    Therapy, also known as counseling or psychotherapy, is a collaborative process between a trained therapist and a client. It provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships, with the goal of promoting personal growth, healing, and positive change.
  • How do I know if therapy is right for me?
    Therapy can be beneficial for anyone who is seeking support, guidance, or personal growth. It is particularly helpful for individuals experiencing challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, grief, or life transitions. If you're unsure if therapy is right for you, scheduling an initial consultation with a therapist can help you determine if its a good fit. (LINK TO SCHEDULE)
  • How long does therapy take?
    The duration of therapy varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some individuals may find that short-term therapy (a few months) is sufficient for their concerns, while others may engage in longer- term therapy for more complex or ongoing issues. Your therapist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that considers your specific situation and desired outcomes.
  • How often will I need to attend therapy sessions?
    The frequency of therapy sessions depends on your unique circumstances. Typically, therapy sessions are scheduled weekly or bi-weekly to maintain continuity and progress. However, the frequency may be adjusted based on your needs and therapist's recommendations.
  • How confidential is therapy?
    Confidentiality is a crucial aspect of therapy. Therapists are bound by professional ethics and legal obligations to maintain the confidentiality of client information. Any information shared during therapy sessions is kept strictly confidential, except in situations where there is a risk of harm to yourself or others. Your therapist will discuss the limits of confidentiality with you during the initial sessions.
  • How do I choose the right therapist for me?
    Choosing the right therapist is an important decision. It's essential to find someone with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting therapeutic relationship. Factors to consider include the therapist's qualifications, experience, approach, and their ability to understand and address your specific concerns. Many therapists offer initial consultations or phone calls to help you assess if they are a good fit for you.
  • What can I expect during a therapy session?
    During therapy sessions, you can expect a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can freely express yourself. Your therapist will listen actively, ask questions, and provide guidance and feedback. Therapy sessions may involve discussions, exploration of emotions, learning new coping skills, setting goals, and working on specific exercises or interventions.
  • Is therapy covered by insurance?
    Many health insurance plans provide coverage for therapy services. It's advisable to contact your insurance provider to understand the details of your coverage, such as the number of sessions covered, any out-of-pocket expenses, and if there are any specific requirements, such as pre-authorization. Some therapists also offer sliding scale fees or payment plans for individuals without insurance coverage. At the Ivins Group, PLLC, we are not in network with any insurance companies. At times, your insurance company will reimburse for sessions. We are happy to provide a superbill for your sessions if you choose to pursue reimbursement from your insurance. A Superbill is a receipt for a session with an out-of-network counselor allowing the patient to submit to their health insurance. A Superbill may be requested by a patient of a mental health professional; psychiatrist, psychologist, or licensed social worker, when the patient pays out-of-pocket for the qualified medical expense. Reimbursement will be determined by the individual healthcare policy at the time the claim is received.
