A MINDFUL MINDSET
A Mindfulness Centered Approach
Therapy in Tennesee
Currently, I do not participate in insurance networks. However, I am able to provide you with a superbill that contains all the necessary information for potential reimbursement from your insurance company. It's important for you to reach out to your insurance provider to determine if they offer out-of-network coverage and if they will reimburse you for the services received
Do you take insurace?
Do you prescribe medication?
No, I do not prescribe medication. However, I can provide you with referrals for places that can help you with psychiatric services.
Your license says marriage and family therapy, but I only see an option for individual sessions. Do you see couples and families?
At this point in my journey as a therapist, I am focusing on providing individual therapy and do not offer services for families, couples, children, or teenagers. My specialization and expertise lie in working with adults on their unique individual concerns and goals. If you are an adult seeking support for personal growth, relationship issues, or other individual challenges, I would be happy to work with you.
What should I expect during the initial consultation?
During a therapy consultation, my primary focus is to get to know you and understand your needs and goals. I will ask you questions about your background, current concerns, and what brings you to therapy. It's an opportunity for you to share your reasons for seeking therapy and ask any questions you may have. I will also provide you with information about my approach, therapeutic techniques, and what you can expect in future sessions. The consultation is a chance for both of us to assess if we can work together effectively and establish a strong foundation for our therapeutic relationship.
How often do I need to attend therapy sessions?
Regular and frequent therapy sessions are very important for making progress in therapy. Prolonged gaps between sessions can disrupt the momentum and hinder the effectiveness of therapy. To ensure a consistent and uninterrupted journey, I recommend scheduling sessions with an appropriate frequency that allows for meaningful engagement and ongoing support.
I typically recommend starting with weekly sessions for the initial 4-8 sessions. During this time, we focus on building rapport, understanding your needs, setting goals, and beginning treatment process. After this initial phase, we will have a check-in to evaluate your progress and collaboratively determine the most beneficial frequency of sessions moving forward based on your unique needs and goals, ensuring a steady and productive therapeutic process.
I recognize and respect that people may face varying financial circumstances, and these factors can affect their ability to attend therapy sessions on a frequent basis. However, I firmly believe that financial limitations should not hinder you from accessing the treatment you need. In my practice, I have observed clients who initially begin with biweekly sessions and still make significant progress in their therapeutic journey. It is important to note that while the pace of treatment may be influenced by session frequency, it is still possible to achieve positive outcomes and growth.
Monthly therapy sessions can provide beneficial check-ins for individuals seeking support, allowing for connection, progress monitoring, and addressing emerging concerns. However, it's important to note that if your mental health concerns require more intensity, monthly sessions may not yield the desired level of progress typically achieved through more frequent therapy.
