Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve compiled a list of the most frequent questions that I have received over my career. It’s normal and encouraged for patients to ask many questions when choosing to work with a licensed Therapist. Here are some answers to the questions I receive the most. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please get in touch.
Do you only offer telehealth appointments?
We are currently offering telehealth appointments for the states of Washington and Texas.
If you miss more than 3 appointments then you run the risk of not being seen again and receiving a dismissal letter. Those who repeatedly skip appointments may forfeit their right to future service at Holding Hope Therapy. We will continue care up to 30 days after dismissal and then at that time a patient is no longer required to be seen or treated. Clients will be charged the full session fee for any non-emergency missed sessions that are not cancelled with 72 hour notice.
Do you accept insurance?
At this time we do not accept insurance. In order to provide 100% confidential treatment with competitive pricing options, we do not accept payment through insurance. We also want to empower you as the client to pick your provider, the treatment length, the treatment approach right for you, and not have insurance interfere with your unique needs and goals. If you would like to seek reimbursement for your sessions, we can print a statement for you to give to your insurance company. We cannot guarantee reimbursement from your insurance company. We accept all major credit cards and FSA/HSA cards as forms of payment.
What do you treat?
I am able to treat anxiety, depression, grief, complex trauma, OCD, PTSD, abandonment and neglect, counseling for teens/adolescents , personal development, spiritual development, individual counseling, sexual abuse and abuse recovery, women's issues, codependency, Lifespan Integration Therapy, counseling for caretakers of children with chronic illness and special needs, racial trauma, multi-cultural counseling, marital and couples counseling, and divorce recovery.
How does it work and what will can I expect in the sessions?
In our first session we will build a relationship, get clear on your main concerns, and create a plan with goals to achieve the outcomes you want. I will tailor therapy to your specific needs. I take an eclectic approach in counseling including but not limited to Person-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy, and Lifespan Integration. You will receive paperwork ahead of your appointment and your mental health professional will be familiar with the information you provide.
