Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance?

 

We do not participate with insurance agencies, as they do not cover intensive therapy sessions, coaching, substance use interventions, or monitoring. Some insurance plans will cover the cost of an out of network provider for therapy services. You can call your member services line on the back of your insurance card to see if your plan covers services with out of network providers, as well as what percentage of the agreeable fee they will reimburse.

Our Therapy Intensives are designed to decrease the overall amount of time that an individual is enrolled in therapy, which ultimately makes our service more cost effective than traditional therapy. In fact, one hour of EMDR can achieve one year's worth of CBT.

We understand that our skillset and training rank as some of the highest in the whole state of VA. Because we work in a field that is grossly under compensated, we understand firsthand the difficulties in finding quality care for a price that is reasonable. We aim to create a pricing system that compensates us fairly for our advanced level of training, while remaining accessible to all walks of life. To this end, we utilize an income-based fee schedule for our services.

We offer three tiers, in addition to reduced fee slots. Folks who pay the middle tier are asking to support their community, while folks who pay the lowest tier are asking to be supported by their community. Folks who pay the highest tier are requesting to greatly subsidize the fees for members of our community who may not otherwise be able to afford such care. The tiers are used for guidance, however we trust the consumer to let us know what they can reasonably afford. Our fees are as follows:

Our time spent directly with you is only a small part of our dedication to your care. In addition to daily operating tasks, we engage in our own ongoing professional development that is time consuming and expensive. We pride ourselves in the amount of training we invest in each of our team members, allowing us to provide the most sound, evidence-based treatment to the individuals in our care. Furthermore, we also volunteer our time to provide trainings and other services within our community at little to no cost.  

How long does therapy last?
 

Therapy is an individualized process, based on the unique needs and experiences of each person. Often times most people experience that they begin to feel worse before they begin to feel better. This is usually because they are able to see their pain clearly for the first time. Only then can we truly understand the scope of what they're wanting to work on. We believe that the client sets the pace for therapy and core issues should only be worked on when the time is right.

It is most common that new patients will meet weekly for therapy the first month, and depending on the severity of symptoms, may be able to move to biweekly sessions afterwards. Because we customize our clinical interventions to meet the unique needs of each client, everyone’s process will look different.  

What diagnoses do you treat?

We specialize in treating every type of trauma: shock trauma, developmental (pre-verbal and attachment) trauma, relational trauma, and complex trauma. Many mental health diagnoses, such as anxiety and depression, are often misdiagnoses for the nervous system imbalance caused by events in childhood (whether they feel traumatic or not). 

Our advanced skills in Somatic Therapy are effectively applied to anxious and mood disorders, chemical and process addictions, family issues, and much more. Whatever symptoms you're experiencing, we'd be happy to see if we're a good fit for you. You can fill out our appointment request form, send us an email, or call us at 804-203-2100.

What's the difference between coaching and therapy?

Coaching focuses on the here and now: What are the problem behaviors that are interfering with stepping into my future self? We focus on problem solving, developing more effective coping strategies, and staying in the present. 

At Seeking Depth to Recovery, we offer a variety of coaching services. Our Somatic Life Coach uses the stories in the body to lean into resistance instead of away from it. This curiosity settles the nervous system and allows individuals to access their natural creativity in overcoming obstacles without the shame, blame, or judgmental attitudes. This service is offered in a one to one setting much like individual therapy. High achieving individuals, executives, and innovators tend to be very successful with this approach.
 

Our Recovery Coaching is geared to support whole family systems who are experiencing drug and alcohol addiction or other form of major mental illness in the home. Rather than being offered as a weekly meeting, like therapy, this relationship is more fluid and flexible, with communication happening in real time throughout the week. Because of the nature of this kind of work, families pay a retainer for the use of the service throughout the month. Often times we will speak regularly throughout the week via text, email, phone, and zoom meetings. We will move from a reactive state to a proactive state by exploring boundaries, effective communication, conflict resolution, and truth speaking. 

Therapy, on the other hand, aims to dig deeper. When new behaviors are unable to be readily adopted, therapy can be used to explore how an individual has gotten stuck in their past and begin the process of becoming unstuck. A therapist has more intensive training that equips them to treat trauma and more significant underlying conditions. A relationship with a therapist is a bit more long term than that with a coach, due to the nature of the core issues that define the treatment goals.
