How long does each therapy session take?
The first session is a diagnostic session that takes just over an hour usually. After that we find that most clients benefit from 45-60 minute sessions. Typically we look to “front load” 3-4 weekly sessions and then spread these out to biweekly and monthly encounters contingent on a client’s ability to function.
Do you accept insurance?
We do work with managed care to try to help as many people as we can. It’s important to realize that when insurance pays for treatment, they can dictate what is necessary, so you may still need to advocate for yourself. Though not all providers take all insurances, we do have someone paneled with: Aetna / Aetna Better Health, Caresource, Anthem / Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Ohio Medicaid, Medical Mutual of Ohio, Molina, Ohio Healthy / EAP, Optum, United Healthcare / UMR.
What are your rates and fees?
Most rates are based off $120/hr professional fees ($150/hr for the first intake session). We do accept many insurances. In addition, we have partnered with Open Path to provide a limited number of sliding scale spots.
What if I’m not happy with my service?
We strive to be open about what to expect at the start of counseling. If you are not getting the results you need or want, please feel free to bring this up in session. If you think there are ethical boundaries crossed, please contact the CSWMFT Board of Ohio. More information here.
