What is your style of therapy? I thought you'd never ask! I am a systemic-feminist therapist, meaning I believe the systems, cultures, roles, hierarchies, relationships, narratives, and many other things influence our mental health symptoms. I formulate personalized treatment plans based on client's individual needs and presenting problems. My style draws from modalities such as CBT/Trauma Focused CBT, DBT, ACT, Person-Centered, Attachment theory, Gottman couples, EFCT, SFT, and several other areas of therapy. I strive to be culturally competent and affirming; an LGBTQIA+ ally, poly knowledgable!
What does an Intake Session look like? This may differ from provider to provider. Here at Koger Counseling, once you have decided to book an intake session you will receive the New Client Intake Paperwork. Then, in the session you will review your therapy goals, symptoms you hope to get support with, and start getting to collaborate with your provider. At the end of the session, your therapist will check in about if you feel comfortable choosing them as your therapist or if you prefer a different style of therapy. (Please note intakes are paid sessions)
What is the Good Faith Estimate? The Good Faith Estimate is a document listing expected charges before you get an item or service. This is not a bill, but an estimate of your cost per session for services. For Simone, all sessions are $140 per 50 minute session. If you are a current client, you have received a personalized GFE. If you have questions regarding this document please let Simone know.
Do you see clients after 5 pm?
Yes! I do have openings after 5 pm, Monday, and Tuesdays. If you are inquiring to book a session please email me
to see if there are current openings.
What is your schedule?
In therapy, our schedules are not linear, for example I see clients Monday - Thursdays but available times vary. If you are looking to book an intake session please contact Simone for current openings or fill out our Koger Counseling Inquiry Form
How long are therapy sessions? Traditional therapy sessions are 50 minutes long and depending on the frequency that works with your goals- you will discuss cadence of sessions (weekly, bi-weekly, etc) with your therapist.
What is your current license? My professional title is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (MG61208937). I also have a Certification as a Grief Informed Professional Counselor (Cert. #488946).
What if I don't like my current therapist's approach? That is okay! Not every therapist is for every person. Let them know you want to make a change and do it!
