How Therapy Helps

LauraCookCounseling_OliveBranch_Blue.png

Mental health therapy is able to help you in many aspects of your life.  Some of those aspects might be life transitions, anxiety, depression, past trauma, and relationship issues.  In the presence of a trusted therapist, you are able to discuss what might be keeping you from leading a more contented, peaceful life while working to form a deeper understanding of yourself.  In therapy, we will discuss self-talk, mind-body connections, and patterns that are prevalent in your life. We will also explore past trauma that might be manifesting itself in symptoms such as anxiety and depression.  Ultimately, you will grow to have a deeper understanding of YOU and the world around you.   

Healing From the Inside Out

 

I believe healing is best done through understanding the root of the problem.  There are probably underlying issues that are keeping you from the life and relationships you wish to have.  In therapy you will learn skills and techniques that help you function wholly but more importantly, you will gain a deeper understanding of what makes you “YOU”. 

 

That understanding is a catalyst for change.

What is keeping you from living the life you desire?

  • Payment
    Payment is due at the time of service. I accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks. I also accept Flexible Savings Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) as payment.
  • Insurance
    I do not accept insurance, but I am happy to provide you with documentation (SuperBill) for out-of-network benefits. You can also pay for therapy using your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or your Health Savings Account (HSA). Keep in mind there are some advantages to using private pay: With private pay, although a mental health diagnosis may be given, it is not required. Your records are protected; therefore all information obtained in therapy sessions will not be seen by an insurance company. The choice of care is decided by the collaborative efforts formed by my professional expertise and your personal preferences and goals rather than those of the insurance company.
  • Cancellation Policy
    You will be charged the full rate of the session if you are unable to cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance.

A deeper understanding of YOU
