Frequently Asked Questions.

Learn more about starting therapeutic services with Mountainside Counseling.

Are all services virtual?

Yes all sessions are online. We have found, and studies show, that online sessions are just as effective as in person sessions. Use our contact page to reach out to us if you want to discuss online counseling & if it is right for you.

Do you accept insurance?

At Mountainside Counseling Center we are not an in-network provider, but we access out of network benefits for our clients.  If you have out of network we can submit the information to find out your reimbursement, submit the claims for you, and reimburse you according to what your policy allows.  

Do I have to come every week? And how long do I have to come?
How Often?
In order to get the most out of therapy once a week is certainly the best case scenerio-especially at the beginning of treatment.  

How long do I come? 

 That depends on the goals for treatment, which we establish up front when you come in, and we revisit throughout the course of our work together.  I have several clients who I’ve been seeing for several years, once a week.  I also have had many clients who come in to work on a specific situation or emotional turmoil in their life, and once they achieve a level of functioning, insight and/or clarity about it, we decide together that they can finish treatment.  It depends.  
Are you going to tell me what to do? If I want to leave my relationship are you going to try to get me to stay?

You really are the guide to the direction we take in our therapy.  I am a direct therapist, and I don’t hold back on offering my take on things-but no, I will not be telling you what to do, trying to convince you to either stay or leave, or presume to know what’s best for you.

I will, however, take your direction on what you want out of therapy-and help you make the healthy wise decisions you need to make for yourself.  And we can take as long as you like to decide, because doing nothing while we look for clarity is in fact doing something.

Does therapy really work? And how will we know if its working?
This one’s easy-we’ll know if it’s working because I’ll ask you from time to time “Is this working?”  If you aren’t sure then we have work to do together to establish clear goals or directions to our work, and to continue to check in with each other about whether the therapy is helpful or not.

Do we have to talk about the past? I’ve been in therapy before, and my other therapist was always talking about my mother-do I have to do that?
You don’t have to talk about anything you don’t want to, no.  If it makes sense to talk about your past, of course we may hear about that.  Learning about your past is also an important part of getting to know you, and understand you.  But I’m much more interested in the present than I am in the past.

Let’s face it, the entire world has changed.  We don’t know for how long, and if we’ll ever be back to what we used to call “normal” again. During this COVID 19 pandemic, these big changes have been a shock to the emotional system. Grief, sadness, anxiety, depression, fear, and panic are just some of the symptoms many of us are experiencing. Now, and for some, more than ever.

Online therapy is not new, and it’s not new to our practice. 

Mountainside has been providing virtual counseling for several years. We are ready to meet you in this time of need.
