What exactly is psychotherapy versus counseling?
Although both terms are used interchangeably there are differences. Many professionals can offer counseling services. Only those educated, trained, and licensed in psychotherapy have the knowledge and skills to go beyond surface issues finding deeper causes for mental problems in order to provide long-term permeating change. ITC offers brief counseling services for small, time-limited issues, and psychotherapy. Together you and I will determine what processes fit the issues at hand. Read this linked article for a further exploration of the two therapies.
How long are therapy sessions and how much does it cost?
Sessions last approximately 50 minutes and the standard fee for the initial intake, file setup, and assessment is $140.00 for individuals and families, and $175.00 for couples. Couples assessments include a Prepare/Enrich assessment ($35 cost). Each subsequent session is $130.00 for individuals, families, or couples. You are responsible for payment in-full at the beginning of each session unless prior arrangements have been made.
Can I use my insurance to pay for therapy?
At this time ITC is an "out-of-network" provider. We do not currently accept insurance as a form of payment although you may submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement. Please contact us for more information on how psychotherapy may be provided for those in need of financial assistance.
