What Does Therapy Look Like?
Who is Therapy For?
Everyone can benefit from therapy at one time or another. Therapy is an opportunity to process feelings, relationships, past hurts, and circumstances. It can also help you to improve positive coping skills, relationship skills and communication skills. Seeking help for your mental well-being is just like seeing a physician for your physical health – it is beneficial for living your best life and YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Will my family/coworkers know I am seeing a counselor?
Everything we discuss is confidential and no one has to know you are seeking therapy services unless you want to tell them. Minors will have to have a parent sign a consent form, but session details will not be discussed with the parent.
How long will I be in therapy?
Length of therapy will be unique to each individual. During the intake process, we will discuss recommended frequency of sessions that are flexible to your availability.
What insurances do you take?
We take Blue Cross/Blue Shield, QualChoice, Ambetter, Cigna, Aetna, United/UMR, HealthScope and Mercy Managed Behavioral Health insurances.
How do I file with my insurance company?
Carsten Counseling Services will file directly with your insurance company. You will be responsible for any co-pay, co-insurance or deductible amount at time of service. We will attempt to provide you with an estimated amount per session before your first appointment with us.
