    A Tailored Approach to Mental Wellness

    We are a private pay Teletherapy practice, which means you have the luxury of receiving a customized therapeutic approach individualized to your goals, strengths, and needs.

    Those who have insurance benefits are invited to utilize their OON benefits.  We also have package rates available.  See below for more information.

    Tailored Therapeutic Approach

    Women Empowerment Counseling is skilled in a variation of counseling techniques and modalities.  We tailor our therapeutic approach to meet your individual goals, strengths, and needs.

    We don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach. This means you and your counselor can create a treatment plan tailored to you without worrying about insurance coverage being denied or limiting the treatment you receive.  You will receive quality, treatment-focused care.

    Our focus is to provide you with the best quality care, and as a private pay client without treatment limitations, the focus is solely on YOU!

    Freedom of Choice

    As a private pay client, you aren’t limited by your health insurance coverage dictating what type of therapy you can receive.

    Most health insurance companies limit your care with requirements. This can include limiting the amount of sessions you’re allowed to receive, only covering treatment for certain diagnoses (which also obligates the clinician to diagnose you in the first session!), and a declination in coverage for certain treatment modalities.

    With the freedom you receive as a private pay client, you and your counselor will work closely together to decide the best treatment for you. No limitations attached!

    No Labels Needed

    Holistic care includes a decreased need to diagnose.  We view “diagnoses”, such as anxiety, depression, or mood disorders, as a ‘symptom of’ a greater problem rather than the problem itself.  We focus on exploring, identifying, and resolving root causes to prevent the same issues from returning in your life in another form.

    Without the obligations of diagnosing you (which is required by the insurance company on the first session to pay for therapy), we are able to focus solely on who you are as an individual, human-being in life, not just the symptoms or challenges you are experiencing.

    The truth is diagnoses don’t actually help you! Diagnoses can be misleading and often create self-defeating thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Our goal at WEC is to empower you to overcome your challenges, allow you to become the best version of yourself, and find complete wellness and happiness in your life.

    Benefits of Private Pay Therapy
