FAQS

HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY

Most people engage in therapy services long enough to receive a "new paint job" on their psyche; however, they most often find out that once the paint starts chipping and exposing the dark, unaddressed and hidden parts of themselves, they realize the structural issues of the psyche were never touched in the therapy realm and, may in fact, be the reason for feeling "off" or "unbalanced".  I believe "painting" one's outer layers can be helpful; however, I believe therapy should be a space where we look at the "bones" of one's psyche and use the space to repair, reinforce and strengthen the base structure to allow for a stronger sense of self and more resilient and flexible foundation.  Unfortunately, this takes time and due to a culture that promotes rapid fixes and quick solutions, most people do not give themselves the time that is needed to begin even exploring the under layers of themselves.


I believe this article does a wonderful job of laying this out for everyone.  Please take 10 minutes to read it...I believe you will find it very helpful.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE

You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don't have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.

The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.

  • Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
