All the Answers You Seek, In One Place
How do I know if I really need therapy?
Often people enter therapy when they reach a state of crisis. For example, they are considering divorce, their depression or anxiety is unmanageable, or they feel like they have lost all control over their children. While these are certainly valid reasons to begin therapy, one does not have to be in a state of crisis to potentially benefit from our services. The following are some signs that it may be time to call for a consultation:
You feel nervous or anxious almost every day.
You find yourself crying often, sometimes for "no reason."
You feel alone, isolated, or lonely.
You and your partner/spouse/or children are frequently in conflict.
You are dissatisfied with the level of communication in your relationship(s).
Your child is frequently having behavior problems in school or at home.
You are dealing with a difficult life transition, such as divorce, launching of children from the home, a recent loss, or
entering into retirement.
You are using coping mechanisms such as alcohol or drugs to deal with stress.
These are only a few of the reasons people enter therapy. You know yourself best. Even if you do not have any of these symptoms or struggles yet feel like it may be helpful to have someone to talk to, it is a good time to call.
Do I have a choice of which therapist I work with?
Yes. If you have a preference to work with Katrina or Skilar just let us know. Otherwise, we will arrange for you to work with the therapist that can best meet your scheduling needs. Both Katrina and Skilar are licensed and qualified to diagnosis mental illness and treat a wide range of issues.
How long does each therapy session take?
This varies from client-to-client depending on a variety of factors. Some clients reach their goals within 4-6 weeks, while others may be in therapy a year or more.
How much does therapy cost?
Katrina is currently able to accept insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield, Kancare/Medicaid (Sunflower Health Plan and United Healthcare Community Plan), United Healthcare, ProviDRS Care Network, and Aetna.
Skilar is currently able to accept insurance from Aetna, ProviDRS Care Network, Kancare/Medicaid (Sunflower Health Plan, United Healthcare Community Plan, and Aetna Better Health of Kansas).
During your consultation the therapist will provide you with a Fee Schedule and discuss payment for services. Our fees are set $20-$40 below the average cost of therapy in the surrounding area. If finances are a concern or limitation we will do our best to work with your ability to pay. If needed, we will provide referrals to alternative providers who may be a better fit for your financial situation.
A quote of benefits and/or authorization does not guarantee payment or verify eligibility. Payment of benefits are subject to all terms, conditions, limitations,and exclusions of the member’s contract at time of service. Any portion not covered by insurance will be the responsibility of the client.
Do the therapists work from a Christian perspective?
Skilar and Katrina openly share that they are Christians and will provide a faith-related approach to treatment if this is the client's desire. At the same time, our beliefs are never "pushed" on clients and every person will be treated with care, compassion and respect regardless of faith or spiritual beliefs.
