At Insight Child & Family Counseling, we want you to feel comfortable with your treatment. Give us a call today with any questions you may have as well.

What kind of approach do you use?

This is a great question to ask your counselor. Each counselor is different and treats different illnesses in different ways. You should be comfortable with their approach so asking this question will prepare you for what is to come in the future.

What will our goals be?

The ultimate goal is to get you feeling like yourself again. However, this is a great question to ask your counselor when discussing weekly and monthly goals. You will want to know what your counselor expects of you, so that you can be prepared beforehand. Sometimes, therapy can be a bit of easy work that requires your cooperation.

How often will we meet for counseling sessions?

The duration and the time between each session will differ between patients. Your counselor will be able to form a plan that is best for you. Talk to your counselor about any time restrictions as well as scheduling issues. They will want to work with you to provide the best times for your meetings while doing what is best for your treatment plan.

What are the costs associated with counseling sessions?

Although your mental health is important, you will want to understand the costs associated with your treatment. At Insight Child & Family Counseling, we strive to offer affordable care. Ask us for more information about payment plans and terms and how your insurance may be able to cover some of your cost. We are here to help.

What if I need to cancel or change a session time?

It is always best to call 24 hours in advance.  However your depression counselor will understand when things come up. It is best to keep up with your treatment as well, so always remember that what is canceled must be rescheduled to be effective.
