FAQS

Still have questions? Learn more about counseling and our services below!

Getting started with Amethyst Counseling begins with readiness and taking the first step to research and reach out.  We encourage you to explore our website to see if our services align with your needs.  Then, initiate contact through the 'Client Screening' tab below to provide information about yourself. Amethyst will be in contact with you within 24-48 hours to potentially move forward with scheduling a free phone consultation.

Your phone consultation is a brief conversation used to determine if there is a good fit between you and the provider you may be working with.  During this time, the provider can learn more about you and what you are looking for and answer any questions you may have for them.  By the end of the consultation you will be able to move forward with becoming a new client or receive information about whether a referral to another resource or course of action would be best.

DOES AMETHYST TAKE INSURANCE?

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH AMETHYST COUNSELING?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY FREE PHONE CONSULTATION?

HOW MUCH DOES EACH SESSION COST?

Each session, from your first to your 50 minute follow ups sessions, start at $125 and are based on your income.  Your fee is determined by our client services manager prior to your consultation.  At Amethyst, we view counseling as an investment of your time, energy, and finances. We encourage you to compare this investment to others that you commit to for personal care, and prioritize that which you give to your mental health.  Once your client screening is submitted, and contact is initiated, a member of our team will be able to establish your full rate. Let us know if you find your rate to be financially challenging and we will try our best to assist you with getting connected to other services.

DO YOU OFFER IN-PERSON SESSIONS?

No. Amethyst does not take insurance.  As a private pay practice, we are an out-of-network provider for all insurance carriers and can provide the necessary paperwork to enable you to file for reimbursement for treatment in accordance with your individual plan's out of network benefits.  We recommend that you check with your insurance provider about your rate of reimbursement and/or mental health coverage before your first session as rates and fees vary based on your individual policy.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN COUNSELING?

No. Amethyst is a completely digital practice, which means all sessions take place through our HIPPA compliant videoconferencing system ‘Telehealth by Simple Practice’.  Counseling sessions can also take place via phone if this is deemed more appropriate.

Consider counseling the start of a confidential therapeutic relationship aimed at helping you explore the past, its connection to the present, and how this can help you thrive in a future of your vision.  During your first session, your provider will be getting to know you by gathering background information and identifying your counseling goals. Your therapist will invite you to openly share your current thoughts, feelings, and experiences, free of criticism or judgement, related to what’s bothering you.  You may be given homework if it is deemed helpful, and in your next sessions you might share your thoughts and progress, addressing any areas where you may feel stuck, off-track, or frustrated.  Consider your therapist a guide rather than an advice giver.
