FAQS

What is Counseling?

We build strong, healthy muscles through resistance. Taking steps to improve mental health works the same way. You can learn to challenge the unhealthy thoughts and patterns that keep you from personal growth. Counselors can help.

Counseling is a therapeutic relationship. It's just as normal as anything else we do to maintain or improve our health and well-being: exercise, rest/relaxation, fun with friends, and eating right. And it’s equally as important. Because life doesn’t come with an instruction manual. We face new or unforeseen obstacles at almost every turn of our personal journey. And sometimes those obstacles can’t be moved. The coping mechanisms we develop along the way to help us navigate can sometimes end up hurting us. Counselors are trained to identify and help correct the misguided or unnecessary thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that no longer serve us—those that create unrealistic expectations, fragile bonds to loved ones, depression, anxiety, and so much more. You’re not alone on this journey.

Do You Accept Insurance?

Connected Conversations Counseling does not accept insurance providers at this time. 

 

Many individuals who have health insurance elect not to use it for coverage of mental health services, and instead pay for therapy as an "out of pocket" expense, or use their flexible or health savings account.  Most often, this is due to concerns about the privacy of their health information, and the potential release of this information to health insurance companies and their affiliated entities.
