Choosing to begin therapy is an individual choice for everyone. There are many reasons why someone may want to begin therapy including; depression, anxiety, or substance use. Others may be seeking therapy because they are going through a major life transition or are working to pursue their own personal growth. Kyle will work with any client who is interested in making changes in their life in order to reach their personal goals.
If you are not sure if therapy is the right choice for you, please feel free to call and schedule a free 30 minute consultation.
Because therapy is individualized and tailored to each clients needs, it is not possible to state how long it will last. In some cases, therapy may be brief and in other cases it can take many years. Kyle will work with each client to set realistic goals and timeframes of meeting those goals, however, it is important to remember that as you grow and change throughout this process, your goals and timeframes may change as well. The eventual goal of therapy, is to end therapy. Kyle hopes that all clients will be able to work through issues ongoing using the skills and tools learned during their sessions without the ongoing need for therapy.
Welcoming Wellness Counseling does not currently take insurance. In order to have your insurance company pay for your therapy, Kyle has to give you a Mental Disorder Diagnosis. Depending on your insurance plan and company, Kyle will have to write several reports indicating that you are still struggling from a Mental Disorder. In order for the insurance company to continue to pay, the report needs to show that you are still ill, although getting better, but not cured yet. This Mental Disorder Diagnosis will continue to show on your health records, potentially making it more expensive or more difficult to get health insurance in the future.
Welcoming Wellness Counseling has also found that insurance companies only pay for a limited amount of sessions throughout the year which may not coordinate with your personal needs or goals. Kyle wants to be able to continue therapy with clients as long as the need is there and insurance plans may hinder this ability.
If you would like to discuss payment plans, please feel free to call Welcoming Wellness Counseling directly.
Kyle understand that clients may have limited availability, therefore Welcoming Wellness Counseling offer services Monday through Saturday at various times throughout the day and evening in order to accommodate your needs.
