What type of insurance do we accept?
RenewU Counseling Services currently doesn't accept insurance. We provide a per session sliding scale based on financial needs as well as Pro Bono services. Unfortunately insurance companies require previous medical diagnosis prior to seeking therapy. We focus on getting to the root of the problem without leaving clients with a long term label that diagnosis often creates. Please contact our office to review your specific counseling needs.
Will you benefit from counseling?
Most people find counseling to be helpful. Having an objective third party can provide considerable benefit. Therapy offers an opportunity for a new perspective that can help you move forward in growth and healing.
It is our goal to ensure that you are provided a safe place to discuss issues with someone that has the experience to help you address the challenges you face. Also, counseling can add clarity for decision making and provides a beneficial environment to determine the best course of action for issues you are addressing.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to analyze why you are reacting to certain situations the way you are. If you are dealing with more serious issues that we are unable to help you with, we will refer you to an outside source to help you. Whatever the issues are that you are struggling with, counseling can be focused to address your needs together we can determine the key counseling goals to ensure you get the best help possible.
What is you privacy and confidentiality policy?
The utmost care in privacy and confidentiality is assured to you and your family members during and after services are rendered. Since RenewU Counseling Services remain a private practice, your personal information regarding care is not released to anyone without your written consent. No acknowledgments of a relationship between you and the counselor can be made unless you specifically sign a release of information form.
How long does counseling take?
It is difficult to say specifically how long to counseling will take since each individual situation is unique. However, we can determine some time frames based on the initial assessment that we will conduct at our first meeting. Please keep in mind however, as problems develop those estimates may need to be modified and we will freely discuss this.
Typically, the average course of therapy last 6 to 12 sessions, though therapy may be shorter or longer in duration. The length of treatment depends on the complexity of the issues being addressed, your level of personal motivation, and the frequency of meetings. All of these factor can affect the rate at which we can deal with the problems.
What is your Christian counseling perspective?
RenewU Counseling Services was founded on a deep conviction that seeking God's direction, wisdom and power during the course of therapy is an essential component of the healing process. We feel strongly that the first step in dealing with painful regret and guilt is to understand God's forgiveness and the endless love of Jesus Christ. Prayer is a part of our session, we welcome praying with you before or after the session if you would like to do so.
If you are unsure of where you are at on your spiritual journey or don't have any strong religious beliefs we will treat you with compassion. In no way will we impose our faith on a client. No matter where you are in your life journey, we believe that counseling will have a great impact on helping you to live the life you are seeking.
