Common Questions

How private is therapy?

State law protects the confidentiality of communications between a client and a therapist.

There are notable exceptions:

  • Mandated reporting for suspected Child/Elderly Abuse
  • Serious threat of physical violence toward others
  • Serious threat of danger toward self
  • Court order
  • Information requested by FBI

What is therapy like?

Therapy can vary greatly depending on the individual and the goals of the clinician and the client. Generally, a therapist will want to discuss the events that lead the client to seek therapy in the first place and move on to resolving more specific goals. Commonly, sessions will be scheduled weekly and will last around an hour.

Therapy can be focused on a brief issue or can last long term – addressing overarching personal issues and working on emotional growth. On occasion, a therapist might suggest books, activities, or keeping track of events in your life.

For therapy to be effective, you must actively participate in and out of your sessions.

How can I pay if I don't have insurance?

Fret not, there are several options!

  • Our out of pocket fee is $150 for individual therapy and $200 for psychiatry.
  • Group therapy is a great option for low cost and effective care.
  • Acacia has limited spaces available for sliding-scale services.
  • Apply for our student therapy fund, Acacia Roots, which helps low-income students afford the mental health care they need.
