The PHOENIX COUNSELING COLLECTIVE

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I know if we are a good fit?

Realizing that the therapeutic process is primarily a relational process, finding a counselor or consultant that you gel with is important. Consequently, we are willing to talk by phone to discuss your goals for counseling and answer any questions about how we see the therapeutic process.

 

Do you take insurance?

Currently, we do are not taking insurance, but can provide you a superbill that you can then submit to your insurance provider (except for Blue Cross Blue Shield). You will need to check with your insurance to see what out of network benefits that you have. Some clients do not wish to use their insurance plan because they do not want any type of mental health diagnosis on their insurance records.  

 

What is the difference between Counseling and Consulting?

Unlike counseling, consulting does not include the full process of diagnosis and treatment. Consultation is like getting an expert’s guidance, advice, and direction, but without the agreement to diagnose or enter treatment. Consultants have no responsibility for case management.
