Do I have to be a Christian to come to Agape Christian Therapy?
Not at all. While the majority of the clients are Christians, anyone is welcome to call for an appointment.
Do you accept insurance?
We are out of network mental health providers. We can provide our clients monthly receipts of services provided called superbills which you may submit directly with your insurance company. Please call your insurance to inquire about the percentage covered for out of network mental health services.
What can I expect during our initial phone call?
Expect the free phone consultation to be 15 minutes. We will need to know briefly about the issues you are facing so we can provide you with treatment recommendations. We will share what it is like to work with us and will answer questions you may have.
What can I expect during our first session?
We will go into deeper detail about the issues you are facing and together set up goals. We will ask questions regarding your present life and past history, and together we will collaborate on your treatment plan. We will talk about emotion and body sensations to increase your ability to connect with yourself and others.
How long do I need to be in therapy for?
This depends on the amount of issues you bring in to work on and how simple or complex they are. Ultimately, you decide. If you want to discuss this further and can give us a summary of what you are dealing with we'd be happy to offer a ballpark idea of how long it could take.
What is your cancellation policy?
Agape has a strict 24 hour cancellation policy. If a cancellation occurs within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment, you will be charged for the missed session as if it occurred.
How much does it cost?
Single sessions with Amy Karman, LMFT (50 minutes) are $180
Double sessions (100 minutes) are $360
NOTE: Amy is going on Maternity leave September 7th and returning to work January 4th. Feel free to let her know if you'd like to start therapy in the new year!
You may pay by credit card, cash or check, made out to "Agape Christian Therapy".
I heard about EMDR from a friend, do you think that it could help me?
EMDR is a wonderful tool for therapy, and it very well may be the tool for you, but the best way for us to know if it is a good fit for your issues is to talk with you on the phone and set up an initial appointment. In the mean time, please check out the EMDR page on our website to find out more information.
Have any other questions? We would be happy to answer them during a free 15 minute phone consultation or at any point during counseling.
