What to expect in first session?
Expect to be welcomed just as you are for that is how God treats us everyday through his consistent grace. In our first session we will explore a bit of the back drop of your sacred life story and how that is impacting the present day. We will also talk through an informed consent form so that we can establish an understood and safe relationship for counseling.
How long are sessions?
Sessions are typically 50 minutes to an hour, but some request longer sessions.
How much do sessions cost?
Rates for Restoration Counseling under Center for Christian Therapy are between $80-$110 per session.
I'm not a salt lake local, do you provide Face-time sessions?
We do. Simply contact us and we will consider you as any other client.
Do you accept insurance?
In general we do not take insurance. However, we can provide a claim form that you may submit to your insurance company. One place to start is to check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- How much do you pay for an out-of-net provider?
- Is there a limitation on how much you will pay per session?
- Is primary care physician approval required?
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, + Discover cards. We also accept cash + checks made out to Center for Christian Therapy.
What are your specialties or who do you typically counsel?
Jonathan's specialties include: anxiety and depression, shame and vulnerability, couples, sexual addiction and abuse, same-sex attraction and sexual identity, grief and loss, teens, and learning emotional regulation + intelligence. You need not to have one of these experiences to be seen, they are simply areas of specialty.
Is therapy confidential?
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and a psychotherapist. Information is not disclosed without written permission. However, there are number of exceptions to this rule. Exceptions include:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s. The therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, further measures may be taken without their permission in order to ensure their safety.
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and if you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked.
