*Please note your first session will include a one-time $25 administrative fee.

Services provided by our licensed clinicians may be reimbursed by insurance. Check to see if your policy allows for “out-of-network” mental health coverage. If that is the case, each month Breathing Space will provide you with a paid “Superbill” for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

If you will be seeing an Intern or a Limited Permit therapist, insurance reimbursement may not be possible. We do, however, offer a sliding fee scale to make therapy affordable.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of therapy do you offer? Expand

At Breathing Space, we believe that you have what you need within to make the changes you are seeking. We support you by helping you to connect with your body, mind and spirit in a safe way. Through discussion, we discover together patterns of behavior and beliefs that are keeping you stuck.

Our therapists utilize a variety of ways to help you reach your goals and to feel better in your life. Some of our therapists utilize more cognitive approaches to help you understand your thought patterns, while others offer experiential exercises such as movement, writing, art, and role-playing to help you bring your understanding from a cognitive space (in your mind) to a somatic space (in your body).

We have specialties in Trauma, PTSD and Anxiety.

 

 

In addition, most of our therapists are trained in the use of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping) and are Certified Clinical Trauma Professionals.

What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping? Expand

EFT is a cognitive/somatic (brain/body) tool that reduces stress. In the therapy room with a skilled provider, EFT can help you separate the emotion from past painful events in your life allowing you to move forward.

By tapping on points on their bodies, clients are sending  a signal to the stress response center of the brain that there is no danger present in this moment. Pairing the tapping with phrases specific to each client’s experience, the body begins to recognize that even though those things happened, the danger is no longer there.

For a more detailed explanation, learn more at EFTtappingtraining.com.  

What can I expect to gain from therapy with you? Expand

In your therapy, we will focus on uncovering patterns that prevent you from fully enjoying your life and relationships. By understanding and reworking ways you are REACTING in your life, we can pave the way for you to choose and respond from a healthier place. 

The therapists at Breathing Space believe that we unknowingly retain significant amounts of emotional pain and current stress in our bodies. By shining a light on how past pain and current stressors impact your life and releasing them from your body, you can open up possibilities you never knew existed!

We help you to release the stuck points so you can thrive- becoming less stressed, less reactive, more hopeful, more joyful, or more motivated. The possibilities await your discovery!

How long will therapy take to be completed? Expand

Some people come to therapy to work on one specific issue that can be addressed in 6-10 sessions. Others come to learn new ways of living their lives by breaking free of life-long patterns, which takes longer to untangle. 

Other factors affecting the length of therapy include connection with the therapist, type of treatment received, and motivation for treatment.

Ultimately, our goal is to set you on a path towards effective, lasting and life changing treatment.

How long is a therapy session and how often am I expected to go? Expand

Therapy appointments are typically 53 minutes and scheduled weekly. You and your therapist may adjust this framework depending on your needs.

Are my sessions confidential? Expand

Yes, your relationship with your therapist and associated medical records are confidential just like your meetings with other medical professionals. We practice strict confidentiality to allow you to be as open and honest with your therapist as you’d like. What you say will not leave the room.

Please note there are legal limits of confidentiality related to harming one’s self or others. Your therapist will explain this to you in detail at the outset of treatment. You can also review our complete policies and procedures here.

Will my therapist prescribe me medication? Expand

No. Your therapist does not have prescription privileges; however, they can assist in connecting you to a psychiatrist for an evaluation.

Do you take insurance? Expand

Our practice is an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies. Services provided by our licensed clinicians may be reimbursed by your insurance. Check to see if your policy allows for “out-of-network” mental health coverage. If that is the case, Breathing Space will provide you with a monthly paid “Superbill” for you to submit for reimbursement.

If you will be seeing an Intern or a Limited Permit therapist, insurance reimbursement may not possible. We do, however, offer a sliding fee scale to make therapy affordable. For detailed information you can review all of our policies and procedures here.
