How do I make an appointment?
Please call our office at 218-729-6480 or use our Contact page to send an email to our staff who will walk you through the process or answer any questions you may have.
What can I expect?
Your initial session is called a Diagnostic Intake. This session is used to gather your history and for the therapist to get a full understanding of what is currently going on in your life.
When starting therapy, sessions are traditionally on a weekly basis and taper off as goals are reached, usually to every other week and then to once a month. Some clients choose to have check in session a few times a year or come back as needed when events such as a loss or significant life change occurs. Although this is a typical therapy timeline, the scheduling can be increased or decreased depending upon the level of stress and conflict in the your life.
Therapy sessions are usually 50-55 minutes in length.
You can expect to have homework such as activities, readings, or journaling. This helps incorporate the work you do in sessions into your everyday life.
Do I need insurance?
No. Private Pay clients are welcome.
Please call our office at 218-729-6480 or use our Contact page to send an email to our staff who will answer any questions you may have.
Do I need a referral?
No. No referral is necessary. If you are referred please be sure to let us know how you heard of us.
How long will I be in therapy once I start?
Therapy is provided on a need basis not a standard schedule. We provide both short-term and long-term therapy to meet individual client’s needs. Goals are set by you and the therapist. As these goals are met, frequency and duration of therapy is reevaluated.
How will I know if my insurance covers these services?
We know the importance of coverage to you. Therefore, we take great care in providing a service to you where we can obtain all your coverage benefits information prior to your first appointment. We provide accurate information in a time-sensitive manner. This eliminates any stresses or worries that are unnecessary to you, as our client. We invite you to call our staff at 218-729-6480 and speak with them regarding your insurance benefits. You may also use our Contact page to send a message.
