Frequently asked questions

Answers to the most common questions we receive.

How often will I need to attend therapy sessions?2023-05-01T04:34:11+00:00

This is very individualized based on the needs of the client and may change depending on progress made or setbacks that occur. This is something that the therapist and client will discuss and decide together.

Telehealth sessions are an option and the platform is very user friendly. Wendy Maxwell is board certified in tele-mental health.

What can I expect in my initial session?2023-05-12T02:22:58+00:00

A first session is an opportunity for you and your therapist to get to know each other, in addition for you to tell your story about your issues in the way that you see them. Also, the therapist will discuss with you your goals for treatment and administer any necessary assessments.

How long are Sessions?2023-05-01T04:32:34+00:00

Sessions are generally one hour. Longer sessions are available if needed and requested ahead of time.

Do you take insurance?2023-05-01T04:34:37+00:00

Wendy Maxwell is an insurance provider for BCBS, United Healthcare and UMR. She also is an EAP provider for several EAP benefit programs.

How much will my session cost?2023-05-01T04:34:59+00:00

This depends on whether a client plans to use an insurance benefit or pay out of pocket. It is also important to keep in mind that each insurance policy is different, even under the umbrella of the same general carrier, and having insurance is not a guarantee of payment. Individual questions related to an out-of-pocket cost can be answered individually.
