Coverage for Counseling/Psychotherapy Services

The initial inquiries most individuals have when they contact Spiler Psychotherapy™ about our services relate to treatment fees and coverage, type and length of treatment offered, areas of specialization, the therapist’s qualifications, and years of experience. Some will refuse treatment at the outset because they do not wish to pay for the service or because affordability may be a factor. Others will consider treatment if a significant portion can be covered by a third-party payer, such as a family member or an insurance company through their employer’s benefits.

Several years ago, I started to promote online therapy with growing frequency because I noticed how convenient it was for clients to access. I also realized how convenient it was for me to provide therapy this way. This mutually beneficial arrangement presented many possibilities and opportunities, mainly to provide therapeutic services to a larger pool of individuals in a wide-ranging virtual ‘landscape’. Yet, this way of providing psychotherapy services was still perceived as an unpopular option, and the growing acceptance was still at a very slow pace.

Video Counselling

I have found that establishing and maintaining a sense of relatedness and emotional presence in the therapeutic interaction can be a major task. This can become an even greater challenge in a video counselling session.

Courage

More than 40 years ago Rollo May made the following statement: “We are living at a time when one age is dying and the new age is not yet born.” Not only is this aphorism as applicable today as it was then, but also as it will likely be in the future. We always seem to be in transition, in process and in progress and not quite settled or satisfied with where we are.
