1. What is therapy?

Therapy is a process of working with a mental health professional to address emotional, psychological, or behavioral challenges in your life. It involves talking through your concerns with a trained therapist, who can provide support, guidance, and tools to help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

2. How do I know if I need therapy?  

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as everyone's experiences and needs are different. However, if you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unable to cope with your emotions, therapy may be a helpful resource for you. Other signs that therapy could be beneficial include difficulty managing stress, relationship problems, or changes in your mood or behavior.

3. What should I expect in my first therapy session?  

Your first therapy session will likely involve getting to know your therapist and sharing some information about yourself and your concerns. Your therapist may ask you questions about your background, medical history, and current symptoms, as well as your goals for therapy. It's normal to feel nervous or unsure about therapy at first, but remember that your therapist is there to support you.

4. How long does therapy last?  

The length of therapy can vary depending on your individual needs and goals. Some people may benefit from short-term therapy, which typically lasts a few months, while others may require longer-term therapy that lasts a year or more. Your therapist can help you determine the best course of treatment for your needs.

5. Is therapy confidential?  

Yes, therapy is confidential. Your therapist is bound by law and ethical guidelines to keep your information private. However, there are some situations in which your therapist may be required to break confidentiality, such as if you disclose plans to harm yourself or someone else.

6. How much does therapy cost?  

The cost of therapy can vary depending on your location, the type of therapy you're receiving, and whether you're using insurance to pay for it. At Calypso Counseling, LLC, the cost for a 55-minute therapy session is $135. We do, however, accept most major insurances and are willing to offer sliding-scale fees and payment plans.

7. Do you prescribe medication?

None of our therapists are authorized to prescribe medication. We will, however, provide you with referrals to prescribers in our area.
