Will therapy help?
The benefits of therapy depend on how well you use the process. It is hard work. And most of that work will be done outside of the office, putting into practice the insights and skills you learned. The therapist can provide support, enhanced problem solving, creative coping strategies, direction & focus. Many people find that counseling is a tremendous asset to their daily lives because of the positive impact it can have on their outlook and relationships. At LifeWorks Mental Health Counseling, we use evidence-based approaches. This substantially maximizes the likelihood that you will experience long term benefits from your participation in this process. There are a number of well documented benefits from participating in therapy. These include:
*Attaining a better understanding of yourself and your loved ones.
*Learning evidence based strategies for managing conflict and solving problems.
*Finding new ways to cope with stress, anxiety, sadness, grief and other emotional stressors.
*Discovering new ways to interact with difficult people in your life.
*Taking risks to change old behaviors and replacing them with ones that work.
*Increased feelings of peace, connection and satisfaction in your important relationships.
*Improving your self-confidence and sense of self worth.
*Resolving the issues or concerns that led you to therapy.
How long does therapy take to work?
Many people find that they leave the first session feeling supported and relieved. Change is a process that occurs over time. The more open you are to doing your work, the faster the problems in your life will be resolved. There is no set time frame. However, if you are interested in meeting for a set number of sessions, we are happy to design a rigorous treatment plan for you.
What does therapy cost?
At LifeWorks we firmly believe that it is a mistake to be dissuaded from seeking support because of issues surrounding finances. We trust in the benefit of evidence based treatments and want to make success within your reach. We are out of network for most insurance companies. This means that you may have to pay a deductible before your benefits can be used, but once you do, your session fee is comparable to an in network copay. LifeWorks will file all the paperwork on your behalf so that there are no added burdens on your end. Costs for our specialized clinical care range from $80-$300 per session, depending on the type of service provided. We also offer a generous sliding scale fee schedule for those who do not have out of network benefits or wish to avoid insurance all together. Above all, we are sensitive to your financial needs, too.

How do i pay for services?
We accept cash, check, zelle or credit card for your copays, your deductible contributions, your coinsurance payments and your session fees. We do require all clients to have a card on file to be utilized for the cost of services as well as to cover any unexpected no show or late cancellation fees. We send invoices for all payments due and do not allow clients to carry a balance. If an insurance company determines you are responsible for payment of services, we will collect the amount due using the card on file, and provide you with a receipt of services so that you can discuss the disallowed expenses/coverage with your insurance company.
