For all out-of-network and self-pay clients we will provide you with a Good Faith Estimate that notifies you of the fee for each type of service you have with your therapist. Your therapist’s fee is posted on their biography in the About Us page and is also explained in the consent form you sign prior to starting therapy at Bright Path. The frequency of sessions will depend on the therapy goals you identify for yourself or the level of crisis that you are in. For instance, clients with whom safety is a concern, therapy sessions may be needed twice a week.
Although we cannot tell you how long you will need therapy there is research that identifies optimal therapeutic change. Acute difficulties usually require fewer therapy sessions than chronic conditions. Challenging family dynamics may also contribute to a longer course of therapy for children. We do not prescribe medications however whether or not a person is on medications may also impact the needed frequency or duration of therapy sessions.
Clients who come consistently to weekly therapy for a period of 4 to 6 months typically show better outcomes in a shorter period of time than clients who have less frequent, sporadic or inconsistent sessions. If you are having a financial hardship that is impacting your ability to continue or attend your therapy regularly, talk to your therapist about your options.
