What To Expect
Perspective Counseling is a solo practice, and Ashley is personally invested in the professional support of her clients. When you call, she will answer. She will call you back, and you will deal directly with your therapist rather than a receptionist or answering service.
New clients should call to set up the first appointment. Be prepared to briefly explain the reason you are scheduling and provide insurance information. This is a good time to ask questions you may have. When you arrive for your first appointment, you will first complete some paperwork. Then you will spend about one hour with Ashley discussing your issues and answering questions about your background, current lifestyle, and health. If you are already an established client, you may schedule an appointment online.
Ashley believes it is very important that you connect with your therapist. She understands that she won’t be the right therapist for everyone. If for some reason you or she decide it isn’t a good fit, she will be happy to provide names of other therapists you might consider.
How often you attend therapy is ultimately up to you. Some people find they need weekly support. Others attend less frequently or only when they feel they need extra support during difficult times.
Therapy sessions are scheduled for 45 or 60 minutes depending on the individual situation or need. Monies owed (copayment, deductible, self payment) are due at the time of service.
