  • How do I schedule an appointment for supervision, speaking events or therapy?"
    Scheduling for any of our services is a simple process. Send an email to and let us know which type of service interests you.
  • What happens during the first therapy session?
    During the first session, we will go over all intake paperwork with you to orient you to the counseling process. We will ask you questions to get enough background information for us, together, to develop some goals for your progress. The intake is also a time for you to interview us to make sure that we are a good match. The relationship is a major component of success in therapy. We want you to feel comfortable. We also discuss the frequency of sessions and schedule your follow-up appointment during our first session, if we both determine that we are a good match.
  • Is what I say kept in confidence?
    Confidentiality is extremely important to the therapeutic process. We will explain the limits to confidentiality during our first moments together.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    We currently accept BCBS, Aetna, Cigna and Medcost. We will discuss your individual plan during the beginning of the process.
  • May I pay for therapy services out-of-pocket?
    Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy. Both Joy and Brandon gladly accept private pay clients who choose not to involve insurance carriers in their treatment.
