Providence Counseling does not accept insurance. When requested, we do provide statements that include all the appropriate coding for you to submit them to your insurance company for possible out-of-network benefits.
Insurance companies require a formal mental health diagnosis. Many of the issues addressed in counseling do not meet the criteria for a formal diagnosis, such as counseling regarding an issue related to a relationship. Counseling is often about helping people through a difficult season or situation that does not involve a "disorder".
We keep your records confidential and are not shared with anyone, except in case of
your express written consent, or in cases protected by law (e.g., your safety or the safety of others is at risk). When you use insurance to pay for therapy sessions, your confidential records become a part of your medical health records and may have an impact on your future employment and/or insurance coverage.
One of the most important reasons is counseling is a collaborative process. You and your counselor will determine the course of treatment and the length and duration of therapy sessions together. The length and duration of sessions are pre-determined if you utilize an insurance company.
HOW LONG DOES COUNSELING LAST?
At Providence Counseling, we treat each person individually and work with our clients to develop a treatment plan and a course of therapy uniquely designed to fit their needs. With that in mind, counseling can last just a few weeks or go on for many months, depending on what you need to work through at your own pace and individual process.
Each session is approximately 45-50 minutes. There are times where clients request 80 minutes for an extended session, or 110 minutes for a double session.
At Providence Counseling, we hold your confidence in the highest regard. We are committed to keeping this a safe place for you to speak freely about whatever is on your heart and mind. Our office is HIPAA compliant to ensure that your identity and information (when you come, what you say, and the records of your visit) are all kept confidential. At the same time, there are important legal and ethical limitations on counselor-client confidentiality that you should discuss with your therapist prior to beginning counseling.
