What to Expect
Because I believe it’s important to give clients control over their treatment process, I will generally spend 1 – 2 sessions discussing how the brain works, and assessing how your brain is currently functioning. Then we spend 1-2 sessions discussing the tools and resources you need to be in control of your brain's ability to process information. Then we enter into the treatment phase where we start tackling each goal of the treatment plan. The number of goals you want to tackle determines how long you are in therapy. Most of my clients are in counseling weekly for 3 months to 1 year. Clients choose their own discharge date once they have met all their goals. I encourage clients to have a graduation session and celebrate the accomplishments they have made during their counseling journey.
Clients receive a PayPal invoice the day of their appointment and are expected to pay that same day. We do bill insurance for those who have Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). If a client has another insurance they want to use, we encourage clients to set up their appointments through SonderMind or Faithful Counseling who will handle the billing to their insurance. When going through SonderMind or Faithful Counseling clients need to request to be matched with Christina Chismar.
