What can therapy do for me, my partner, or my family?
Therapy is a way to schedule a specific meeting place to discuss the issues that we so often put off for the sake of making it through everyday activities. There will likely be moments of conflict in therapy, but it also presents an opportunity to truly address the problems that are causing the turmoil that led you to seek out therapy in the first place.
Couples therapy can help both new and established partners to find out what behaviors or beliefs are throwing hiccups in the happiness they found together. By sharing the details of the relationship that you would feel uncomfortable communicating to your normal support structure, a therapist can offer a new and unique perspective on the innermost workings of your hearts.
Family therapy will help you piece through the complex web of relationships between each of your closest loved ones, helping you identify how to improve the beneficial connections and work to improve the negative ones.
What kinds of therapy are available?
Emily Schneider Therapy focuses on individuals, couples, and families of all types. Your therapy regimen may include aspects of all three as your relationships can and do interact with one another.
Can you prescribe medication?
No, medication will not be prescribed during therapy sessions. Treatment is focused on communication and modes of thinking.
What is the timeline for therapy?
There is no set timeline for when you can expect to see results from your therapy. It will depend on a number of factors, including the willingness of the involved parties to put in a concerted effort towards the therapy.
Is your privacy secure?
All of the information shared with your therapist before, during, and after the therapy sessions is fully confidential except in a few extreme circumstances. If there are cases of abuse (whether physical or sexual) or plans to commit violence towards the self or others, then confidentially is waived in favor of the health and safety of those involved.
Does insurance cover therapy?
You cannot use insurance to directly pay for your therapy sessions, but you can file a claim with your insurance company to determine if they will reimburse you for any of the charges that you incur.
Can I reschedule or cancel a therapy session?
Generally, a 24-hour notice is required for cancelation or rescheduling to avoid being charged for the session. If extenuating or extreme circumstances arise, please communicate the situation with Emily so that we can work with you to find a reasonable solution for all parties.
