b'well COUNSELING SERVICES
Whether this is your first or tenth time seeking a therapist, we know you may have lots of questions about how therapy works.
How do I find a Therapist?
Click our "CONNECT" tab and let us know if there's a particular b'well therapist you want to work with. If not, we'll connect you with a therapist whose skill set and specialization best meets your needs.
After a brief phone consult, you will meet with your therapist for an initial session where the two of you will learn if you are a good fit.
What Will i do in therapy?
We believe therapy is a collaborative effort so we encourage you to bring in something you want to explore . Your therapist will help you feel, think, and process through these experiences using modalities that align with their therapeutic values and that they have been specifically trained to use.
How Long will I Be in therapy?
Though some people find therapy to be a support lifetime tool, our goal is for you to take what you learn in session out into life beyond the therapy couch. On average, we work with clients for at least one year, meeting weekly or every other week. In some cases, like with Brainspotting therapy, we only meet with clients for a few months.
Are We Just Going to Talk About My Past and My Childhood?
Our past and our families are an important part of our stories, but your therapist will follow your lead when it comes to bringing these things into the room. Even though these are important parts to explore, we believe it's just as necessary to give the present and future attention too.
How Much Does Therapy Cost?
Session rates vary by provider. We set our fees as we do so that we can offer you therapy with skilled clinicians who have had specialized training. We also want to provide you with high quality, personalized care that cannot be delivered by an over-scheduled, under-paid clinician. Please know that some of our therapists accept CareFirst BCBS plans and all therapist can provide clinical receipts for possible reimbursement.
How Will I Know if It's Working?
Often the effects of therapy are a relief; we have seen people experience clearer focus, better sleep, and more meaningful relationships... And sometimes the side effects of growth include stepping out of relationships, changing jobs, having difficult conversations, and feeling out of place in old patterns that no longer work.
It's helpful to remember that the discomfort is temporary and is ultimately what leads us to growth.
