The biggest difference is the focus of the work. In therapy, you and your therapist will explore your mental health challenges and process how this has made an impact on your life choices, relationships, and goals. Because all of our coaches are therapists, in your coaching sessions you and your coach will briefly discuss the impact your mental health has on your life choices, relationships, and goals; however, the center focus will be on setting and achieving measurables goals over a specific period of time (i.e., Over the next six months, I will transition from being a full-time employer to an entrepreneur.)
All members of our crew are required to submit a bio for their profile. Read them carefully. Choosing a therapist is strictly based on personal preference. We offer a free 10-15 minute consultation to determine clinical fit, meaning, we don't want you to pay for therapy if you don't like your therapist. During your consult, you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the therapist's expertise, availability, etc. Listen to your gut. If you didn't catch a vibe from the consult, then you are not required to continue the process. There's no love lost.
Currently, Dr. Terri is the only therapist in the crew that is in network with Caresource and Amerigroup insurances. It is important to note that when you use your insurance for therapy, you are agreeing to being diagnosed with a mental health disorder. The mental health disorder remains on your medical file indefinitely, and the diagnosis is a requirement from the insurance company for therapy service reimbursement. Because of this, as a collective we have opted out of accepting private insurances. We do, however, offer sliding scale therapy services starting at $75. You can read more about the sliding scale by visiting the "Services & Fees" page.
According to the IRS, you can include therapy as a qualifying medical expense. Please note that the IRS only allows you to deduct qualified medical expenses that exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.
