Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to the most common requests we receive here at Sanctuary Counseling. If you do not see what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us through our contact request form or by emailing < email@example.com >, and we will do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
We care about our clients, and understand that the therapy process can vary by situation. Please call our offices or submit a contact request form, and we will help answer any additional questions you may have.
How long will this take?
Your therapeutic journey will be unique, and there is no way to calculate how long therapy will take to achieve your goals. Those who come motivated and coming consistently to therapy see the best results.
We will typically see adults for a minimum average of 4 to 6 months, but many people find it helpful to come for longer. For clients under the age of 18, the timeline can vary widely. We advise you call us to ask for more information about the process and for more about how we work with you.
How much does it cost?
Our session fees range from $120 to $140 per session for out-of-pocket costs. If you have insurance, we offer assistance with applying for your out of network benefits so that you can be reimbursed a portion of your session fee. We also offer a financial assistance program that can drastically reduce your session fee based on your income and other life circumstances.
How often do I need to come?
At Sanctuary, we believe it is in your best interest to begin with weekly sessions. It is up to your therapist to decide if anything more or less is recommended on a situational basis.
Parents and Partners
For parents and partners with questions regarding a client, we find your involvement important in the therapy process, but also wish to respect essential privacy concerns. Please call us if you have any specific concerns involving your unique situation.
What does my involvement look like in my child's therapy?
Sanctuary takes a systemic approach to therapy, which means we consider the entire family system. While we work with child, we also want to work with you to continue the benefits from therapy at home.
You are welcome to communicate with your child’s therapist about any progress or concerns from home involving your child.
Can I make an appointment for someone else?
For anyone over the age of 18, we must speak with the individual seeking therapy at our center, even if this is a spouse, child, or loved one. If you have any specific concerns, please call your local office and discuss with our staff your situation.
Parents or guardians must schedule any appointments for children under 18.
Parents may schedule an appointment for children who are 18, but still attending high school. We do ask that you call and discuss this plan with us prior to your first appointment.
We want to ensure that you find the best fit for your needs. However, we want to provide transparency to help determine if we are the community and support you are looking for.
What services are not provided?
We are a psychotherapy counseling center. We do not prescribe medication, but we do have a referral list for those who may.
We also do not offer therapy as part of legal proceedings (e.g., custody, divorce). There are professionals with specific training in this area who are your best choice for these needs.
We do not permit those who are registered offenders on the premises. We do not permit any weapons on the premises, regardless of a person’s permit/license status.
What clients do you accept?
Individuals, couples, and families – from people deeply struggling to people looking to make changes – from age 6 to 106, we accept everyone. Our website contains a general list of concerns and issues we have experience supporting through our therapy services.
Sanctuary is a place of peace, safety, and healing for children and adults. We do not permit those who are registered offenders on the premises. We do not permit any weapons on the premises, regardless of a person’s permit/license status.
