Frequently Asked Questions
What is a private mental health practice?
L2t seeks to provide customized services to promote emotional well-being in every arena of life. We work exclusively for our clients and seek to provide the highest quality services whether that be therapy, life coaching, consultation, or educational workshops.
Do you accept insurance?
We have chosen not to contract with insurance companies or EAPs and work directly for and with the client. However, some of our services can be reimbursed by your insurance company. Therapy services (individual and groups) provided by our independently licensed clinicians can be reimbursed to you depending on your insurance plan and deductible. Please see the Payment Policy form for all of the information you will need to call your insurance provider and inquire about your policy and coverage. We offer services that meet most budgets from individual therapy, coaching sessions, groups, educational workshops, sliding scale fees, and pro-bono work with select non-profit organizations.
What issues or disorders do L2t therapists treat?
Our therapists diagnose and treat adults, adolescents, and children for a variety of issues such as addictions, ADHD, anxiety, behavioral problems, bipolar disorder, depression, grief and loss, trauma and PTSD, relationship and marital distress, and adjustments to changes occurring throughout the lifespan. The foundation of therapy at L2t is psychodynamic but many modalities are utilized to help clients reach their goals. Each therapist has their own areas of expertise and personal approach to their clinical practice. Please see the therapists’ bios to learn more about each one.
What do I need to do in order to schedule my first appointment?
If you are considering therapy with us it is important that you call and speak briefly to one of our therapists about what you are wanting to address. We can discuss your concerns on the phone and together decide if we are the right fit for you and your needs. An appointment will then be scheduled.
What do I need to do in order to be ready for my first appointment?
After you have scheduled your initial appointment you will need to print off and complete the Intake Packet found on the L2t website. Please bring your completed Intake Packet to your first appointment where you and your therapist will review it together. You will also need to read the Office Policies & Procedures as well as the Notice of Privacy Policies (HIPPA) documents that are on the website. You do not need to print these forms out unless you want a hard copy. However, you will sign a document that states that you have read and/or agree to comply with these policies. Please check out the directions found on the website to be sure you know where the office is located.
What will my first appointment be like?
The Intake Assessment is a 60-75 minute appointment. Completion of the Intake Packet will give you an idea of the information that will be reviewed in session. The purpose of the first appointment is to meet your therapist, identify the problems you are wanting to address, and review your biographical history. Your therapist will then provide you will an initial clinical impression and approach to therapy. If after the first appointment you think that the therapist is the right fit for you, you will then set up future appointments.
What length of time will I need to attend therapy sessions?
Therapy sessions are a collaborative process between you and your therapist. You will work together to determine how long is needed to reach your goals. Many people find that brief therapy (6-10 sessions) can be very helpful for certain issues while others need ongoing therapy for several months to address their problems and see lasting change.
What therapy modalities do you use?
In general, L2t clinicians have a psychodynamic approach to therapy. However, we seek to utilize the modality that best fits your needs. With Psychodynamic Theory as the foundation, we utilize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). For trauma we use TBRI, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and DBT. For coaching and brief therapy we use Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). For couples therapy we use EFT and DBT. For addictions and substance abuse we use Psychodynamic Theory, DBT, and CBT.
