Do I have to be a Christian to come to see Amy at Agape Christian Therapy?
Not at all. While the majority of my clients are Christians, anyone is welcome to schedule a phone consultation to see if we are a good fit.
Are you seeing clients in person?
I am seeing clients both in person and via Zoom. Some clients do a hybrid where they come in person, but when its more convenient, they opt for virtual.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an out of network mental health provider. I can provide you a monthly receipt called a superbill which you may submit directly to your insurance company along with a member claim form. Definitely 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. I'd like to know about the issues you are facing so that I can provide you with a tailored treatment recommendation. I will share what it is like to work with me and can answer questions you 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. I will ask questions regarding your present life and past history, and together we will collaborate on the treatment plan. We will talk about and begin to process emotions you feel in your body so that we can increase your connection to yourself, others and to God.
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. Some clients come in for a few sessions to work on a single issue or trauma, and others stay for 6 months to a year or more working on deeper attachment issues, recovery from addiction, and complex trauma. If you want to discuss this further and can give me a summary of what you are dealing with I would be happy to offer a ballpark idea of how long it might take.
What is your cancellation policy?
I have 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 (unless there is an excusable emergency).
How much does it cost?
Single session (50 minutes) is $195
Double sessions (100 minutes) are $390
(Price is the same for individuals, couples and families)
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 me to know if it is a good fit for your issues is to talk with you on the phone and hear more. In the mean time, please check out the EMDR page to find out more information.
Is EMDR the only trauma therapy?
Not at all. I am trained in a few other ways of treating trauma and often will weave these together. These include: Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and the Trauma Resiliency Model.
Have any other questions? I would be happy to answer them during a free 15 minute phone consultation or at any point during counseling.
