WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
How do I pay for counseling?
Understanding counseling, insurance, and payment can be confusing. If at any time you want our help, just let us know. We don’t directly bill your insurance for a number of reason. Mostly it is because we want you to have complete control over your records. We’d love to walk you through the process of getting counseling started.
Is counseling confidential?
In Traverse City, it’s usually not a big deal to run into someone. It’s sort of the charm of the area. But when that person is your counselor, you should know exactly how confidential your information is! We take your confidentiality very seriously!
Not only is counseling protected by federal law, but we go well beyond what is required. We’d love to tell you more if you have questions.
Right Counselor for me?
You always get to choose your counselor. Even if you start with one, you can always switch. We want you to have the very best fit at our Traverse City counseling practice. When we look to bring on new counselors, we look for people that can cover a wide variety of issues. We have counselors that work from infant mental health all the way to retirement. You always have a choice!
