Therapy and mental health support for Individuals, Couples, and Families

Whatever it is, we’re here for you.

Do you feel overwhelmed with all the “stuff” life brings? Do you wish that someone, especially your partner, would understand just how hard doing all of the things for everyone else can be? Do you stay up late at night because you can’t sleep due to all the worry and anxiety? Do you find yourself having difficulty getting what you want out of life and letting others know how to help you? We hear you! And… We can help!!!

Life is full of difficult choices. Relationships are a lot of work. Parenting is strenuous. Families have all kinds of dysfunctions to manage. And sometimes other people just suck. When you have feelings, events, relationships, or other issues that make your life challenging, it’s okay to ask for help. Seeking professional counseling services, including cognitive behavioral couples therapy, therapeutic counseling, and intensive couples therapy, can provide the support and guidance needed to navigate through these challenges effectively.

Additionally, online substance abuse counseling may offer a convenient and accessible option for addressing any substance-related concerns. Remember, reaching out for help is a courageous step towards a happier and healthier life.

You don’t have to wait to feel better.

All are Clinicians believe you should be in the driver’s seat of your therapy. This is your life after all. Even though we may each have a different approach our goal is the same… to help you achieve your goals and feel better.

It varies between Clinician and service provide. Please check our fee page for more information. We try to offer many options in order to help you achieve your goals without breaking your piggy bank.

We begin everyone at weekly sessions. You wouldn’t be reaching out unless you needed some support now. We have found that people who do weekly sessions initially gain more stability and make progress faster than those that have initially begun with biweekly or monthly sessions. If this is a concern, please speak with our staff. After some time, there is typically a discussion with your Clinician where you both decide that you have made progress and feel positive about stepping down to every other week sessions, then possibly monthly and then you graduate therapy!

Typically, sessions are 53 minutes. However, you can request to do additional time in advance, dependent on your Clinicians schedule and payment method.

We don’t find it is good practice to see two partners of the same couple for individual counseling, nor individuals that are being seen for couple counseling. If you are receiving individual counseling and are interested in couple counseling we may have another Clinician on staff that can see you, and visa versa.

We have Clinicians that provide early morning, evening and weekend appointments.

We work really hard during your 15-minute consultation call to make sure we are connecting you with the Clinician that would best fit your personality and goals. We ask you give your clinician at least 4-5 sessions before you request a change. Then if you really think the therapeutic relationship is not a good fit, chat with us about making a change. Your Clinician may be feeling the same and have a recommendation for someone who would be a better fit for you and your goals.

Not if we can help it! In your intake paperwork you agree that you are entering therapy to make changes not use what we work on for court purposes. You consent that you will not subpoena us to court, and if we are that it will be VERY EXPENSIVE.

Some of our Clinicians do take insurance for specific types of therapy. See our fee page for more specifics. Please know that there are potential risks for using insurance for therapy such as: depending on diagnosis being limited to work for the government, become a pilot, or be ineligible for life insurance. In addition, your insurance company can request your records at any time and can decide to stop your care if you aren’t seen as being “symptomatic” enough.

Click one of the Book your free 15-minute consultation button and request a chat with our office. They can help you talk through who would be a great fit for you and your goals. The office will request some basic information to set up your secure and HIPPA compliant poral. You will receive access and will have multiple forms to fill out before your first scheduled appointment. We have a thorough intake form that you complete on your own time, which allows you and your Clinician to begin work the very first session. As long as all documents are completed 48 hours before your initial session, you will see your Clinician on the other end of the screen for your scheduled appointment.

We have a 24-hour full fee cancelation policy. If you are unable to make your session, please contact our office at office@affitnitytriangle.com to reschedule ASAP. If it is less than 24 hours before your appointment you will be charged a full session fee ($160 for individual or $200 for couple). Insurance does not cover this fee.

Sure! Do you think you are struggling? Then come. Couples counseling can happen with just one person. Think about tossing a stone into the water. You start making changes, your partner will have to do something different too to bring the relationship back to homeostasis.

Yes. Each of you will have your own portal that has separate documents and video access. You can join on the same portal link sitting next to each other, in another room on different portal links, or across town/state using your unique portal link.

No. We do not provide support animal approval letters. You may obtain one from your Psychiatrist or Primary Care Provider.

FAQs

Which therapist is best suited for me?

All of our therapists are highly qualified to provide therapeutic support and each have areas of specialty. It’s recommended that you read their profile located under the ‘team’ section of our website.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions that you will need depends on your goals. Some clients require only a few sessions to gain some tools and get things off their chest, while others attended for months as they enjoy having the ongoing support in their lives.

Are your services covered by insurance?

Many extended health benefit programs will cover the cost of counselling with a Registered Social Worker or Psychotherapist. Please check with your insurance provider to check your coverage before booking your session.

Additionally, services provided by a Registered Social Worker or Registered Psychotherapist are tax deductible as a medical expense.

As for billing, we do not bill insurance companies directly. After we receive payment, we provide you with a receipt that has all the required information for you to submit the session to your insurance company.

What if I don’t click with my therapist?

A good therapeutic relationship is important and as therapists, we understand this. We recommended trying 2-3 sessions with a therapist and if you feel like it’s not the right fit, we are happy to book you with someone else.

My partner and I are separating, where do I start?

Separation and Divorce is overwhelming and we are here to support you. If you have children, we recommend starting with our co-parenting workshop or co-parenting counselling. From there, we offer a variety of specialized services for Separation and Divorce that can accommodate a wide range of needs or circumstances. Please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your specific needs.

Will my therapist fix the issues or concerns that I have, or tell me how to do this?

Therapy is not about having someone fix your life, it’s about gaining tools, reflecting on past or current events and gaining insight into yourself and your experiences.
Your therapist will not work harder than you do so come prepared to work for what you want.
