Embracing Uncertainty: Addressing Your Concerns about Therapy
Entering therapy for the first time can bring up a range of emotions, from curiosity and hope to apprehension and doubt. I want you to know that it’s okay to feel a mix of emotions as you consider therapy and is actually a helpful part of the process. Here are some common concerns that new clients often have
Will therapy really help me? It’s normal to wonder if therapy will be beneficial. Therapy offers a wealth of benefits that can positively impact various aspects of your life. Through therapy, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, develop effective coping strategies, improve relationships, enhance communication skills, and cultivate resilience. Therapy is a valuable investment in your overall well-being and personal growth. Here at Healing Insight, our team of highly trained therapists take the time to get to know your challenges, strengths, goals, and needs. Then, we work with you to craft and accomplish a treatment plan that is unique to you.

It is a valuable resource for anyone seeking personal growth, support during challenging times, or assistance in navigating life’s complexities. Whatever your reason for considering therapy, our compassionate therapists are here to meet you where you are and provide the guidance you seek.
What if I’ve tried other things before and it didn’t work? Therapy offers a distinct approach to healing that can complement other strategies you may have tried in the past. Unlike self-help books or temporary fixes, therapy dives deep into the root causes of your challenges and equips you with personalized tools to create lasting change. It’s an opportunity to work collaboratively with a trained professional who will guide and support you through your journey.

What to expect
Once you decide to give therapy a try, the next step is to find the right therapist and therapy practice for you. One way to do that is by understanding what to expect. Here are a few more questions and answers guide you:
Do you accept my insurance? At Healing Insight LLC, we understand the significance of affordable therapy. We accept insurance from a range of providers. Our Intake team is committed to helping you navigate the insurance process. We recommend contacting our office or checking our website for a list of accepted insurance plans. If we don’t accept your insurance, we can discuss other options, such as out-of-network benefits, self-payment, and partially funded therapy through one of our partners, to ensure you can still access the care you need. See a list of insurances we accept here.
What can I expect in my first therapy session? Your first therapy session is an opportunity to establish a connection with your therapist and share your concerns, goals, and expectations. During the first session, you will review intake documents you completed (consent forms, symptom screening tools, and a questionnaires). It’s a collaborative process where your therapist will gather information about your background, explore your current challenges, and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. This session sets the foundation for a trusting therapeutic relationship.
What if I don’t feel comfortable with my therapist or feel it’s not a good fit? A strong therapeutic relationship is probably the most important factor when it comes to success in therapy. If you don’t feel comfortable or believe that the connection with your therapist isn’t the right fit, we encourage open and honest communication. Here at Healing Insight, we prioritize your well-being and will work collaboratively to address any concerns or explore the possibility of transitioning to another therapist within our practice who may be better suited to meet your needs. You can also reach out to our care team or the Clinical director for support with finding another therapist in our collective.
Do’s and Don’ts for your Therapy Sessions
Once you begin therapy, it’s essential to establish a collaborative and respectful relationship. Here are a few guidelines to help you make the most of your therapy experience:
- Be open and honest with your therapist, sharing your thoughts, feelings, and concerns.
- Set goals and communicate them with your therapist, allowing you to work together towards achieving them.
- Practice self-care and engage in activities that promote your well-being outside of therapy.
- Attend sessions consistently and be on time showing dedication to your healing journey.
- Don’t be afraid to discuss difficult or sensitive topics. Therapy is a safe space for exploration and growth.
- Don’t judge yourself for experiencing emotions or setbacks along the way. Healing takes time and patience.
- Don’t hesitate to communicate any concerns or issues that arise during therapy. Your therapist is there to support you.
Remember, therapy is a collaborative process, and your therapist is committed to helping you navigate challenges, promote personal growth, and achieve your goals. By adhering to these guidelines, you can create a therapeutic environment that fosters trust, understanding, and positive change.
