Q: How expensive is counseling?
A: Each counselor has different fees, payment plans, insurance acceptance policies, and income-based sliding scales. Contact the counselor you are interested in meeting with to discuss fees.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Good question, and I wish there was a concrete answer; truth is, we are all different and deal with things in different ways. You may feel better right away by just taking the first step or it may take you a while. Counselors are all different too. What we use for one client may not be right for another, so finding the right counselor is a big factor in the length ofthee healing process as well.
Q: Why should I hire a counselor instead of just talking to my friends?
A: A counselor has spent a lot of time learning just how to help people and can offer guidance and unbiased perspectives that our friends just cannot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t talk to your friends about your problems, I’m merely saying that a counselor is much better equipped to guide you through a healing journey.
