    Several benefits are available from participating in therapy. A therapist can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, relationship challenges, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues, and a plethora of other concerns. Many people find that a counselor can be a great asset to managing personal growth and interpersonal relationships,(i.e. family, marriage, work, friendships, and the hassles of daily life). A Therapist can provide you with a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the right direction of a solution. The benefits you can obtain from therapy depend on how well you engage in the process and put into practice the skills you learned. Some benefits of therapy include: - Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals, and your values - Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence - Developing skills for improving relationships - Finding resolutions to the issues or concerns that lead you to seek therapy - Learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety - Managing Anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures - Improving communication and listening skills - Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones - Discovering new ways to solve problems
    Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you’ve faced, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. Therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired! You are taking responsibility by accepting where you’re at in life and making a commitment to changing the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
    Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issues, and report progress, (or any new insights/setbacks) from the previous therapy session. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term for a specific issue or long-term, to address more difficult patterns or your desire for personal development. Either way, it is most common to schedule and maintain sessions with your therapist, (usually weekly). It is important to understand that you will get more favorable results from therapy if you actively participate in the process. The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in sessions back into your life. Therefore, beyond the work you do in therapy sessions, your therapist may suggest some things you can do outside of therapy to support your process, such as: - Reading pertinent books - Journaling on specific topics - Noting particular behavior - Taking action on your goals People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives, and take responsibility for their lives.
    People have many different motivations for coming to psychotherapy. Some may be going through a major life transition, (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance with managing a range of other issues such as self-confidence, depression, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, spiritual conflicts, and other blocks. Therapy can help provide some much-needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives. Signs of a good therapist/ client relationship may include, but are not limited to: - The therapist actually listens to you and gives you relevant realistic tools to cope - As a client, you feel validated and supported - During sessions, you are fully transparent and share information freely - As a client, you are open to being (respectfully) challenged by the therapist and observe positive changes - You can see the value in working with your therapist.
    It is well established that the long-term solution to mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot be solved solely by medication. Instead of just treating the symptom, therapy addresses the root cause of our distress and the behavior patterns that curb our progress. You can best achieve sustainable growth and a greater sense of well-being with an integrative approach to wellness. Working with our medical doctor/Psychiatrist who can determine what’s best for you, and in some cases a combination of medication and therapy is the right course of action.
    Unfortunately, Selah Solutions does not accept all insurances at this time and hopes to enroll with all insurance providers soon. If your insurance is accepted, we will bill your insurance company, however, co-pays/deductibles are collected at the time of service. If we do not accept your insurance, you can work closely with your insurance provider to possibly be reimbursed for your payments. We accept all major credit cards, and health and flexible savings accounts as a form of payment. All clients must keep an active card on file.
    Confidentiality is one of the most important components between the client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but in the therapist's office. Every therapist should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in the session will not be shared with anyone. This is called “Informed Consent”. Sometimes, however, you may want to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team, (i.e., Physician, Psychiatrist), but by law, your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written consent. However, state law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality except for the following situations: - Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders will be reported to the authorities, including Child Protective and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources. - If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person.
    Please ask if I am currently “In-Network” with your insurance provider, as it is my goal to become eligible to accept all insurance providers. If you have “Out-of-Network Benefits” and wish to use your insurance, I can provide a receipt,(called “super bill”), for you to seek reimbursement from your insurance company – this reimbursement will be provided directly to you. Please contact your insurance company directly to inquire about your benefits. It may be helpful to ask: - Do I have to meet a deductible before I can be reimbursed? - What percentage of the fee will be covered? - How long will it take for me to receive my reimbursement after I submit my receipt? - Where do I need to send my receipts? - Do my benefits cover online therapy? I will do what I can to help you verify our insurance benefits and seek reimbursement. However, you are responsible for the fee at the time of service.
    Please note that 24-hour advance cancellation or rescheduling of an appointment is required in order to avoid being billed for the session. If you fail to cancel or reschedule within a 24-hour timeframe or no-show for your appointment, you will be assessed $100.00.
