You Have Questions, We Have Answers

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with a wide variety of clients. Many of our clients are struggling with anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, substance abuse, identity issues, body image issues/disordered eating, and career and life transitions.

We work hard to serve clients who have felt misunderstood by other psychotherapists—including queer clients, people of color, and people who identify as transgender. You can learn more about the individual, relationships, and teens and family counseling we provide here at kiptherapy.com/approach.

You can select a therapist you want to work with here at kiptherapy.com/therapists.

You will be asked to answer a brief questionnaire which will help your therapist understand some important things about you before you meet in person. You should expect your therapist to reach out to you prior to your appointment to confirm your sessions details and answer any questions you have in advance.

During the first session, your therapist will focus on developing a relationship with and understanding of you. This may include a more detailed understanding of what is bringing you to therapy, the history of what you might be struggling with, and what your goals are for treatment. Your therapist will also review Kip’s policies and procedures and what you can expect from treatment.

Each session is 45 minutes long, and we ask that our clients come at least once a week.

The first meeting with Associates is free, and the first meeting with Residents or Senior Therapists is only $25. After you’ve found a good fit, weekly sessions will fall into the following ranges (specific prices are listed on each therapist’s page):

  • Associate Therapists:  $65–95 Per Session ($200 for Couples)
  • Resident Therapists:  $130–150 Per Session ($200 for Couples)
  • Senior Therapists:  $170–225 Per Session ($250 for Couples)

After your first session, we will ask for your credit card information which is safely stored with our credit card processor. We will charge the card on file at the time of your session. We do not accept cash or checks.

We are not an in-network provider for any insurance plans.

However, you may be eligible for reimbursement for services if you have out-of-network benefits that cover mental/behavioral health services. Read about our fees & policies to learn more.

We suggest working with one of our therapists for 3-6 sessions to get a feel for their personality and style. If you would like to switch therapists, you can reach out to your therapist or our operations manager. We will work with you to match you with someone that better fits your needs.

If you have any other concerns, please reach out to our clinic director at aj@kiptherapy.com.

Kip Policies. Help us help you.

Everything you need to know for a great experience with Kip therapy.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality

Ensuring that all of your information and sessions are private and safe with us is one of the most important parts of building a strong relationship between client and therapist. The only situations where we can break confidentiality is if a client is actively suicidal, homicidal, and/or if a child is suspected of being abused or neglected.

Weekly sessions

Weekly sessions

We ask that our clients come to session every week, and we are not able to do biweekly sessions.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation policy

It is important that we adhere to an attendance and payment policy that allows us to continue to offer sliding scale rates and also recognize the realities of peoples’ schedules. Therefore, clients can cancel or miss one (1) appointment each quarter without charge. There are four quarters per year (Q1 January 1-March 31, Q2 April 1-June 30, Q3 July 1-September 30, and Q4 October 1-December 31). After that, you will be charged for every scheduled session that quarter (whether this session is cancelled in advance, is a late cancellation, or a no show), unless your therapist needs to cancel the session. If you do not miss a session during a quarter, that does not roll over to the next quarter (i.e., you only get one “freebie” per quarter, whether or not it is used). If you would like to reschedule an appointment that you will not be able to attend, you are welcome to try to reschedule that session with your therapist before your next session so that you will not be charged for an unused session.
