Common Questions

The first therapist you see might not be the right fit, and that’s okay! Most people can tell if they are going to be comfortable working with their therapist within 1-2 sessions. You matter, so finding the right person with whom you will work matters to us! If something feels off, let your therapist know- we welcome and encourage feedback every step of the way!

Because each of us experiences situations differently, interventions are tailored individually with each client. Our therapists use a variety of therapeutic intervention, including but not limited to:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Emotion-Focused Therapy
  • Brainspotting
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • EMDR

You can come to your first session prepared to provide general information. Intake paperwork will be sent to you ahead of our meeting through my HIPPA compliant client portal.

Before we get started, there are a few things that everyone should know:

  • It’s normal to be nervous for the first visit. After all, you are working with someone you don’t know. It is our job to make our sessions a safe environment, conducive for building trust and boundaries.
  • We will discuss with you the reason for your visit, your concerns, and any goals you may have. It is a time to share your story and get help sorting through the details.
  • We will talk through establishing a collaborative working relationship to help you meet your therapy goals.
  • It might get worse before it gets better- unwrapping and working through complex emotions can bring untapped emotions to the surface that we have been trying to avoid for a long time. We will walk through this and check in every step of the way!

We require 24 hours notice of cancellation. Failure to provide 24-hour notice will result in being billed for the missed appointment. An occasional exception may be made in the case of an emergency. It’s important that we meet consistently in order to make progress.

No, we are not medical doctors. Crowned Counseling works with clients to provide therapeutic interventions. If you want to be evaluated for psychiatric medication, either contact your primary care physician or a psychiatrist. If you are already taking medication, we can coordinate care with your doctor. In the event you don’t have a provider, Crowned Counseling may provide you a referral.

That’s a great question! Simply put, it means therapy is conducted by video conferencing, which means you don’t have to leave your home for therapy.

You will need a laptop, desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone – basically, anything that has the capability of connecting via video and audio. By default, most of these things will have an internal camera and an internal microphone, so you won’t need to go out and purchase anything.

To take the awkwardness out of session, we require a credit card to be kept on file. We want to focus on you during your session! Your card will be charged the morning of your session.
