  • What kind of mental health services does Manifest Hope Counseling offer, and what states are they available in?
    Manifest Hope Counseling is a mental health service provider currently offering counseling for adults in individual therapy. We service clients residing in Ohio​ (LPCC), Colorado (LPC), Georgia (LPC), Illinois (LCPC), Kentucky (LPCC), North Carolina (LCMHC), Texas (LPC), Virginia (LPC), and Washington (LMHC). We offer counseling services, addressing a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship problems, grief, and chronic pain. We are dedicated to providing compassionate and effective care to our clients, and we work to empower them to achieve their personal goals and improve their quality of life.
  • What happens in the first session?
    Our first meeting is all about you and the aim is to establish what your needs are and how I can support you. I'll ask questions about what brought you to therapy, symptoms or challenges that you are experiencing, life circumstances, your personal and social history, and what you're hoping to gain from therapy. I'll give you something to work on for next time (self-reflection questions, an exercise, an article, etc). It's normal to be a little nervous when starting therapy, but I'll work to make you feel comfortable and at ease.
  • Is online therapy right for me?
    Not everyone thrives in the virtual counseling setting, that's okay! Some of the benefits of working this way include added privacy (no waiting rooms or staff to interact with), joining from the comfort of your own home (you can feel more ease joining from your favorite chair), less interruption in your day (no time spent in traffic and you can check back in to your day quicker), and more accessible for people with physical limitations. If you struggle considerably with technology, meeting in person may suit you better. If you have severe and complex symptoms that are causing a higher level of disturbance, you may benefit from a different level of care.
  • How are payments handled?
    Payment is due at the time of service and charged to the card you place on file when you set up your profile within Simple Practice. American Express, Mastercard, Visa, and Discover cards are accepted. If you have an FSA/HSA credit card, you may use this as a form of payment, but please check with your insurance company in advance to be sure therapy is a covered expense. If you'd like an invoice for your records or a Superbill to submit to your insurance company, just ask.
  • I am using Loveland vouchers, how does that process work?
    Loveland voucher holders will provide voucher numbers during each session. The out of pocket portion of session fees will be charged to the card you place on file in Simple Practice. I submit the reimbursement request directly to Loveland, and when the funds have been received, I'll post them as a payment in your Simple Practice account.
  • Do you prescribe medication?
    No, I'm not a medical doctor. I'm a Master's level mental health clinician and don't prescribe any medication. If you're looking for medication management, I may be able to provide a psychiatric referral. If you are under the care of a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, or primary care physician, I'm happy to collaborate care with them and will ask you to sign an ROI (Release of Information Form).
  • What if I don't want to discuss something?
    You are the boss of what you share and when. If there's something you really want to focus on in therapy, but are struggling to articulate out loud, that may mean you aren't ready to go there just yet. Sometimes people aren't ready to identify things in real time, and prefer to send thoughts or ideas outside of session. In those cases, you can send me a secure message within the Simple Practice portal and we can process it together. If you're still stuck, we'll process the reasons that might be contributing to that blockage.
  • How often will we meet?
    The frequency of sessions depends on several factors such as how deeply your life is being impacted by whatever brought you to therapy, the goals we're working towards and the approach we're using, your individual circumstances and the time you may need to practice skills. Some folks want my suggestion to guide frequency while others come with an idea in mind. Many clients start off with weekly or bi-weekly sessions and extend time in between sessions as they start feeling better and making progress.
