Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is sex therapy?
Sex therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy that focuses on the psychological and physiological components of sexual related issues. People often seek sex therapy to address a change in libido, shift in sexual desires, orgasm and or ejaculation issues just to name a few. The goal is to help you address your sexual concerns and move forward to developing a healthy fulfilling sex life.
Why online therapy?
Lets face it, life is busy and flexibility as well as convenience is welcomed. Those are just two benefits of online therapy. You can receive quality therapy in the privacy and safety of whatever environment you choose.
How long will I be in therapy?
The beauty of therapy is that everyone and every experience is different. We would be doing a disservice by establishing a timeframe on your treatment. We will collaboratively assess your progress along your journey to determine an appropriate course for services.
How long is each therapy session?
Initial individual sessions are 60 minutes and all subsequent sessions will be 50 minutes. Initial partner(s) sessions are 60 minutes and all subsequent sessions are 50 minutes or 75 minutes. Partner(s) sessions length will be determined through a collaborative discussion at the end of each therapy session.
Do you accept insurance?
We are currently in network with United Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Carefirst and Cigna. We want to provide services that are not held to the restricts of insurance providers. Insurance providers are the gatekeepers for service approval and often times do not determine sex therapy a necessity. We want to ensure that clients' treatment is unique and tailored specifically to their needs. We will provide a superbill for reimbursement from your provider at your request.
How much are your services?
Initial individual sessions are $150 with subsequent sessions being $120. Initial partner(s) sessions are $200 with subsequent sessions being $150 or $180. The difference in price for partner(s) is determined by the selection of a 50 minute versus 75 minute session.
Will you be sharing my information with anyone?
As a mandated reporter in the State of Virginia, we are legally obligated to report if you are currently a threat to yourself or someone else. Outside of those extenuating circumstances we cannot share your personal health information, which includes if you are receiving services with us, unless you complete a release of information.
What if I need assistance after hours?
We will work collaboratively with all clients to create a crisis plan because we do not provide on call services outside of our business hours. If you or someone else is experiencing a psychiatric emergency, please contact the SAMHSA National Helpline at 1-800-662-4357, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
