1. How much does therapy cost?
Each therapist has different costs, based on their credentials and experience. With Greer, each 50-60 minute session costs $125. With Maggie, each 50-60 minute session costs $100. With Sarah and Jon-Elyn, each 50-60 minute session costs $35.
Typically, we recommend weekly sessions in the beginning, with the option of transitioning to biweekly when it feels comfortable. We all offer 90 minute sessions, as well. If you have specific questions about cost, we are more than happy to discuss those with you.
2. Do you accept insurance?
Currently, only Greer accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield of AL. We can provide paperwork to help in getting reimbursement for other insurances, but we also encourage the client to reach out to his or her insurance company first, since we cannot guarantee coverage. Both Greer and Maggie are able to provide superbills upon request.
Sarah and Jon-Elyn offer reduced rates at $35/hour session, allowing for accessible mental health care for our community, especially for those without insurance.
3. How do you know if someone needs therapy?
Deciding to start therapy is a personal choice. Everyone faces challenges throughout their lives and sometimes we need help learning how to handle them. Different challenges call for different solutions; what may work for one person may not always work for another. Therapy can be helpful in learning how to handle new challenges and better equip you for potential future challenges.
4. I heard rumors that Greer brings her dogs to work--do you actually have dogs there?
Yes! Greer's two pups, Waylon and Eli, come to work most days with her. They are sweet and love cuddles; however, if you have a fear of pups or significant allergies, then she may not be the best fit for you.
