  • What happens in a first session?
    Meeting a therapist for the first time can feel hopeful, exciting, nerve-wrecking, or all of these and more at once. These are common feelings! When you arrive for the first time, it can help to remember that you are getting to know this person just as much as they are getting to know you and that the therapist is a regular person just like you. At Cypress Point Counseling in Plano, your therapist's office looks a bit like a comfy living room. This first meeting is a chance to set goals and get a chance to know each other better. You are wanting to get a sense of their skill and their personality, and a little about their way of thinking about whats bothering you. Is this someone you can eventually trust and feel as though you can tackle tough issues with?
  • How often will we meet?
    We usually meet weekly in the beginning and will decide together what makes sense throughout the course of treatment. Some clients may benefit greatly in the early parts of therapy to come in more than once a week. You and your therapist will decide together what works best.
  • How long will therapy take?
    Therapy is a process of discovering different layers; it is exploratory and not linear. Once goals are reached we spend some time managing the goals we met and saying goodbye. For others there are a new set of goals they want to work on that emerge. It is a developing discussion and a therapeutic relationship along the way.
  • How do I pay for therapy?
    Cypress Point Counseling accepts cash, checks and credit cards. We also accept certain insurance including Blue Cross and Cigna depending on the therapist you work with. Some of our staff also works on a sliding scale depending on your income and specific situation.
  • Is our relationship confidential?
    When you enter therapy, everything is confidential unless you are a harm to yourself or another person. Your being in therapy and the content of sessions is totally private—between just you and your therapist. None of your information is shared with another therapist or person in the practice without your permission. In many cases your therapist may ask you to sign a release giving your permission for them to speak to your doctor, psychiatrist or couples therapist, but that is always with your written permission first.
  • What can I do to get the most out of therapy?
    If you want to get the most out of your therapy investment: - Come to your scheduled appointment consistently and on time. - Be willing to take risks, be as vulnerable and honest as you can. - Be willing to be uncomfortable without getting overwhelmed. - Work out any conflicts or hurts with your therapist rather than bailing out when things get tough; as those places are exactly where a lot of the big changes happen. - Do the experiments or homework you agree to do. It's an amazing step towards wellness to investigate if therapy can help you lead a happier, richer life. We are here to work together with you.
