The psychotherapy service is available to anyone having internal distress that is affecting their health, their relationships, and their sense of well-being. People who come to psychotherapy agree to be honest about themselves, and to put effort into addressing the problems at hand. Psychotherapy is essentially bringing a new and neutral party into one’s life in an effort to mobilize and use one’s resources wisely.
Counseling or psychotherapy is a medical service, so health insurance often pays for a good part of its cost. We make every attempt to work with anyone’s medical insurer, and to make counseling affordable. We will discuss costs with you before meeting with you.
Sometimes people want to talk to a therapist alone, and some want to include a partner or family member. The therapist may suggest a format that fits the problem at hand. If the primary problem is a relationship problem, it is often most useful for all parties to be involved in the therapy. People who choose to come to therapy alone will also have ample opportunity to improve their relationships by understanding the other parties as well as themselves and changing their own behavior accordingly.
The person or persons who contract to participate in the therapy hold the right to privacy and other rights mandated by law.
