What is your availability? How soon get an appointment?
We can usually get you scheduled within 2-3 business days except if you need an evening appointment.
Can I be seen via Skype or Internet?
At this time, we are only taking in person appointments. We may be offering appointments via internet in the future. Please call 715-832-4060 for updated information on this.
How long is each session?
Most sessions are 50-60 minutes except when previously agreed upon between you and your therapist. Sometime longer sessions are needed for crisis or trauma therapy.
What portion of my visit is covered by health insurance?
You will need to see your individual plan or if your insurance is employer based, speak with your human resource department or call your health insurance company phone number on the back of your insurance card. We are in-network with several insurance companies. Please see the “Insurance” section on this website for those listings and for further information.
Is the information that I share in session confidential?
All information about your visits here are absolutely confidential. The only exceptions to that are if you are threatening harm to yourself or others, we have suspicion of child or elder abuse or if we have a court subpoena to provide information to the court.
Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?
If you would like to have someone join in your session we would need to know that prior to the session and determine if that is in your best interest. Sometimes a family member wishes to join to provide additional information or know about your treatment goals. The appropriateness of that would need to be evaluated on a case by case basis. That should not be a problem if that is what you are also wanting.
How long does therapy take?
That depends on your diagnosis and treatment goals. Some issues and crisis situations can be resolved within 2-3 sessions depending on the severity. In these cases, solution focused brief therapy may be appropriate. Longer time periods and a larger time commitment is needed for complex issues and long -term patterns of dysfunctional relationships, especially if family of origin problems are contributing or if the issue is trauma based.
