Online therapy works similarly to in-person therapy. Instead of meeting in an office, we use a secure video conferencing platform to conduct our sessions. You’ll need a stable internet connection, a quiet, private space, and a device with a webcam and microphone. A smartphone or laptop are perfect to connect! Once you begin services, you will sign up to our client portal, from which you will be able to start your sessions moving forward.

If you are a new client, our 15 minute free consultation is a great place to start! Easily book by clicking the “Make An Appointment” button, and selecting your appointment slot. Your therapist will give you a phone call at that time. If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to contact us.

We currently do not accept insurance; however, many PPO insurance plans have out-of-network therapy benefits. You’ll need to check with your insurance provider to determine if they reimburse for out-of-network therapy. If your insurance plan has out-of-network therapy benefits, we can provide you with superbills that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

A sliding scale for services is available for clients experiencing exceptional financial hardship and is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Polaris Behavioral Services does not offer medication prescription services at this time. If medication is something you’re interested in exploring, we recommend you consult with a psychiatrist or your primary care physician who can discuss this option with you and oversee any necessary prescriptions.

In the initial free 15-minute consultation, we engage in an informal chat about what brings you to therapy and how we might approach your unique needs. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the therapy process, giving you a feel of our approach and seeing if it resonates with you.

The overall duration of therapy can vary, with some clients seeing significant change in a few months, while others may continue therapy for a year or more. No therapist can or should predict how long a client will be in treatment since this is highly dependent on your personal goals and the pace at which you choose to work.

If you’re experiencing a mental health crisis, it’s crucial to get help immediately. If there’s an immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
