How does mental health counseling work?
You will meet with a mental health professional who will address any current (or past) concerns that you’re trying to overcome. Freedom Counseling helps our clients address negative thoughts and feelings that have lingered for far too long and have impacted your day-to-day personal and professional lives. By learning new coping skills you will be able to confidently define and pursue your dreams. “Become Who You Are” is not just the slogan of Freedom Counseling but a true testament to the reality that individuals can live their lives with passion and fulfillment.
What to expect at my first session?
Your first session will be slightly different from all consecutive sessions. We will get to know each other, review the initial paperwork and share expectations of one another. By the end of the first session, you should feel clearer about next steps and we’ll have a working plan to help you achieve your goals.
How long are the sessions?
The first session generally lasts 60 minutes. All consecutive sessions are 45 minutes although, if you wish to schedule a longer session that can be arranged.
Do you provide online counseling?
Yes, we do! Telehealth is the way of the future, and Freedom Counseling strongly believes in the value of online therapy. At this time, the virtual option is offered only for clients located in the state of Florida. Our physical office is in the Tampa Bay area. Once we’ve identified your wish to use our Hippa compliant video platform, you will be able to safely log in and connect via a secured network. It is important that you are in a comfortable and quiet environment in order to benefit the most from the online session.
Do you accept my insurance?
Payment is an important question for many of our first-time clients. Freedom Counseling accepts all major credit cards, HSA accounts, checks and cash. Many individuals like to utilize the insurance benefits they have, and that is a completely understandable choice.
Do you work with adolescents?
One of our areas of specialty is working with kids and teens who are undergoing school and family conflicts. Our approach is warm and down to earth, focusing on establishing healthy relationships and improving school performance.
