Below are questions commonly asked when providing individual and couples counseling: insurance, affordable fees, COVID-19, and virtual and in-person sessions. There are plenty more when shopping, but these will save you time.
Common questions people ask:
Do you take insurance? No. I know it is popular. Just click Google and here come the names. There are certain measures a therapist must take to comply with insurances, though. This can include prescribing a diagnostic code, the number of sessions that would (and would not be) covered, and the possibility of sharing information with a third party. While insurances have their advantages, I find that working with self-pay offers greater confidentiality and less intrusion.
Do you see people in person? Yes. I have arranged it to where we maintain 6 feet of distance. I have been vaccinated and will where a mask if you wish. My office has an advantage if you want to combine counseling with a gentle style of yoga to help address anxiety, depression, and trauma triggers from a body-breath perspective.
Do you see people virtually? Yes. I do therapy sessions using Zoom only for Georgia residents and as stated in state policies. Such limitations do not apply for non-therapeutic services such as education, consultation, and mentoring.
How much do you charge? I have a variety of fees to meet needs that go beyond therapy; To list each one would be like trying to memorize the prices in a grocery isle. My counseling fees are are on the lower end of the national average for individual and couples counseling. To have a peace of mind, just do a quick Google search. Many have found my fees "reasonable."
What if I want therapy and yoga? At Body Mind Metaphor LLC you choose your way to therapeutic success. You could decide solely on therapy. Or you might want to combine it with gentle yoga or spiritual guidance. The thing to keep in mind is that not everything Body Mind Metaphor LLC offers constitutes counseling as defined by the state. For example, yoga complements therapy very well, but technically it isn't considered mental health counseling.
