Free Phone Consultation
Feeling hesitant about therapy? Nervous whether you and your therapist will be a good fit? These are completely normal feelings to experience. The purpose of the free 15-minute phone consultation is to help calm these nerves a bit and to express these initial concerns.
The initial session is so important for the rest of the therapy process. This session gives insight as to whether you and the therapist can work well together. An outline for treatment is also established based on the primary struggles that are expressed by the client. The self-pay rate per session is $120, with sliding scale options available. Sessions can also be covered through insurance - verify your benefits today!
Following the initial intake session, the client and therapist determine the rate of frequency that is most appropriate for therapy. Treatment progress is not a race to the finish line; the therapist and client work collaboratively to set treatment goals, or to modify them based on the client's progress. Sessions are typically once per week, and frequency can change depending on a client's ability for independently managing their health.
Remote therapy, otherwise known as "phone-therapy" or "video-therapy," can be particularly helpful for clients who are unable to commute to the practice's office. This is also useful for clients who do not live in Illinois and would still like to receive treatment from Health in Tandem. Video sessions are held through HIIPA-compliant video software, Zoom.us. Remote therapy sessions are not billable through insurance; the client and therapist will determine the most appropriate price for remote therapy. Typically, sessions are $1/minute.
Group therapy is a great options for those who would like a reduced rate of therapy, do not want to use their insurance, or would like to have their treatment in a more socialized setting. Groups often focus on specific skills or techniques for stress and emotional management and can be a great supplement for individual therapy. Group therapy is also a great option to help understand how the outside world sees you as you'll have the opportunity to receive feedback and perspectives from multiple peers.
