F. A. Q.

Do I need therapy?  It takes great courage to face the challenges in your life that leave you feeling most vulnerable. Some people are ready for therapy. Some are less so. How do you know if you’re ready for therapy? If you’re motivated enough to ask the question, then you’re probably ready to get started.

How can therapy help?  It is necessary to acknowledge, from the start, that a person will get out of therapy what they are willing to put into it. A therapist cannot make a person change, but works to draw individuals to a place where change is within reach. If an individual, couple or family is committed to the therapeutic process lasting change really will occur. There are few things so profound as experiencing hope renewed.

I know I want to move forward…..How do I get started? The easiest way to get started is to contact me so that I can answer any questions you may have or head to the Client Portal tab to schedule your first appointment, create a profile and fill out all of the necessary paperwork. You can call me or email me using the information you find on the Contact page. If you call and reach my voicemail, I will do my best to respond within 24 hours.

What can I expect on my first visit? We will spend some time talking about what your sessions will be like and reviewing important parts of the practice policies, such as confidentiality and its importance for you.  We will then begin exploring in greater depth what caused you to call and begin setting goals for our work together. Therapy starts during your first session!

How do I get to your office?  Go to my Contacts page to see my office address, or look below this page (or any other page on this site) to find an embedded google maps with my location marked. When you arrive at my building, enter the double glass doors and take the elevator to the second floor. Suite 230 will be the first door on your right down the hall.

Where should I park?  There is no designated parking connected to the building, but there are many paid parking spaces along Lindsay St. that are usually available.

Do you have a waiting room, or should I wait outside?  When you arrive, you are welcome to come in and have a seat in the waiting area just through the suite door. Feel free to have a seat and wait for your scheduled time.

How much does an appointment cost? Sessions are 45-50 minutes long and are $100 (paid for in cash, check, or credit card) for individuals and couples. Ask me about my student rate and income-based rate if you are concerned about budgeting. Your scheduled appointment time is held for you so if you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible. If you fail to cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment time, you will be responsible for the full fee of the appointment.

Do you take insurance? Taylor Bowman Counseling Services does not accept insurance. If you would like to know more about why I do not take insurance, feel free to ask me.

I’d love to talk with you about any questions you might have. Call or email here, and let’s start a conversation!
