Do I need Therapy?

According to Psychology Today, many people considering seeking therapy aren’t sure whether it’s the right choice for them. If certain issues have been causing problems in your life and you aren’t sure how to make the necessary changes, therapy can help. Dealing with your problems with the help of a professional can get you out of that rut and into a more productive pattern. Almost anyone with a disorder/dysfunction can benefit from seeking professional help from a therapist. The Do I Need Therapy Test will help you determine the steps in your path to emotional wellness. Fill out the questionnaire truthfully, paying special attention to the specified time period to which the questions refers. The results will only be valid if you answer in an honest and complete manner.

How does Therapy work?

At Bald Mountain Behavioral Medicine we believe that creating a trusting relationship is essential to successful therapy. We choose therapists based on their ability to connect, interact and relate to their clients in a comfortable and enjoyable manner. We choose professionally and socially accomplished therapists who know how to establish a connection with their clients through good interpersonal skills and a strong commitment to the therapeutic relationships they develop with their clients. Our overall goal is to help our clients resolve the issues in their lives as quickly and completely as possible. The most important factors in determining success in therapy are the expertise of your therapist with the issues you need help with, and how well you and your therapist relate to one another. That is why it is usually best to choose a therapist based on reputation or personal referral. Every therapist has a different style and personality, so getting the “right” match is an important part of the therapy experience.

How do I get a Therapist who is right for me?

All of our therapists are capable of handling a wide range of issues, although each therapist has different areas of expertise. Referrals to the clinic are usually directed to a particular therapist, or to the Clinical Director for a referral to the most appropriate therapist. After therapy has begun, clients are always encouraged to ask questions about their treatment and even request a different therapist if they desire.

How much does Therapy cost and how long does it take?

Most of our clients attend therapy weekly and most major health insurances cover all or part of the therapy expense. It is a client’s responsibility to be informed about whether their medical insurance will cover outpatient therapy.

Some clients come for only a few sessions and some come regularly for a longer period of time. The duration is determined by the goals the client wants to accomplish, and the process it takes to reach those goals. Your therapist will work with you to establish a schedule that is comfortable for your needs and goals.
