Do you have any discounts?
Oakhouse Counseling does have a sliding scale option. Considering your household income and your required expenses, what would you be able to afford per session? Our full fee for individual sessions is $150 and we slide down to $70.
How do I know if you're the right counselor for me?
A great way to find out if Oakhouse is the right kind of service for you is to....schedule a consultation call! It's like any other conversation you might evaluate: is it easy to talk to this person? Can I imagine being honest and vulnerable in a session? Do I feel respected and heard? Does this counselor seem to know what they're talking about, ask good questions, and remain hopeful that there is a great pathway to getting better?
How do online sessions work?
They work great! We use a service called 'simplepractice' so we can offer 'telehealth' services to our clients. Secure, confidential video conferencing keeps you safe while you get the help you need.
What happens if the technology isn’t working?
Since it’s telehealth, can I conduct my session anywhere?
Yes, anywhere. You'll want a safe, confidential location of course. Driving and counseling aren't a good mix. Just make sure it is a place where you can focus without distraction or the risk of being overheard. We go deep to get better - the barista at the coffee shop probably doesn't need to know that much about you.
Do You Take Health Insurance?
Why we don't take insurance
Here are a few reasons: reduced ability to choose who you see for treatment, pre-authorization hoops, and reduced confidentiality, and lastly - unforeseen negative results from a psychiatric diagnosis.
