Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A therapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns about the self and the world, in order to alter unwanted behavior pattern(s) or mood(s). CBT focuses on the development of personal coping skills to solve current problems and change unhelpful thought patterns.  CBT is most commonly used for anxiety and depression but can also be utilized for treatment of other conditions.

Trauma-Focused CBT: An evidence-based practice created to assist children and their families to overcome the negative effects of trauma.  This modality is very structured and caregiver participation is an essential component. Core components of TF-CBT are: psychoeducation, creating effective coping skills, creating a trauma narrative, mastery of trauma triggers, parent-child sessions, and developing a sense of future safety. Prior to beginning TF-CBT your therapist will review and explain the protocol in-depth.

Play Therapy for therapeutic intervention

Child Trauma Sand Therapy Counseling

Sandplay Therapy: A form of play therapy that makes use of a sandbox and toy figures to create miniature worlds that reflect the client’s internal thoughts and struggles. As this approach allows for non-verbal communication, it allows clients the opportunity to share their stories without the fear or shame that can often accompany verbalization. For this reason, sandplay is often used for those who have suffered from various forms of trauma.

Solution-Focused Therapy: A goal-orientated approach that focuses on the client’s present and future circumstances rather than on past experiences. In solution-focused therapy the therapist assists the client in identifying their goals; as well as, detailed descriptions of what accomplishment of those goals will look like.  Once these goals are established the therapist and client work together to create solutions that effectively allow the client to accomplish their goals.

Solution Focused Therapy

Breathing Through Counseling & Wellness Services is an out-of-network provider. Therefore, we do not directly bill insurance companies.

It may be helpful for you to find out if you have out-of-network benefits. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it may be possible to seek full or partial reimbursement for the cost of the session(s).

When exploring out of network benefits we recommend asking the following questions to your insurance provider.

● Does my health insurance plan include behavioral health benefits?
● Does my health insurance plan provide coverage for out-of-network providers? If so, what does that process look like and what is required?
● Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
● Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?

Please note the following: Because we do not bill insurance providers directly, payment is due at the beginning of each session. Fees are payable by cash, check, Health and Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) with an associated card (Visa or MasterCard logo required).  Upon your request, a receipt (also referred to as a super bill) can be provided. On that receipt, there is a section for what’s called a CPT Code and a diagnosis code. If you are deciding to submit this to your insurance to seek possible reimbursement, we would include both the CPT Code and insurance code for your diagnosis.

It is important to know that while insurance can lower your cost, insurances typically require we make a clinical diagnosis. This diagnosis becomes a part of your permanent medical record and may have current or future implications. This process is completely up to you. We are happy to
discuss the pros and cons of utilizing out-of-network benefits.
