Frequently Asked Questions

Our counsellor | Insurance Coverage | Services Offered | Privacy

During individual counseling, you and your counselor meet one-to-one in a personal and confidential setting where the conversing relationship is safe, secure, warm, and comfortable. The counselor pays attention to you and tries to figure out your thoughts, feelings, and emotions concerning your situation. Your counselor considers you who you are without creating any opinion about you.

The truth is that challenges present themselves in various forms and fashions. However, solutions to overcome these challenges are also available in the form of treatment. But having said that, in many situations, they aren’t evident as the obstacles themselves. This is where individual therapy and counseling come into play. Through individual counseling, the counselor can look at issues from a different perspective, professionally analyze the situation, and then help the client with strategies they can implement to overcome the above obstacles.

Individual counseling offers a range of benefits, together with the ability to talk about feelings and emotions with a person you can trust. For clients with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder, individual counseling facilitates a person to speak about symptoms. Other benefits include-

  • Improving self-awareness
  • Improving communication skills
  • Self-exploration
  • Getting a new and positive view.

If you feel individual counseling sessions can be beneficial for you, you can always connect with Lifebulb using our 24x7 active helpline. You can also find us online; simply search ‘individual counseling near me, ‘personal counseling near me,’ or ‘counseling in my area’ or ‘counseling near me’ or ‘individual counseling services’ or ‘counseling treatment.’

Some people are doubtful about enrolling in individual counseling therapy due to the shame of mental disorders. But still, individual counseling is advantageous for all those experiencing any one of the following issues -

  • Extreme emotions, such as sadness or anger
  • Recent trauma, like the death of a loved one or divorce
  • Substance abuse
  • Issues at work
  • Loss of enjoyment of activities
  • Strained family or personal relationships

There are numerous benefits to counseling. When working with a personal therapist through individual therapy or counseling sessions, you'll feel empowered to regain control of your life. Therapists can offer strategies to manage undesirable habits or thoughts and help identify challenges. Additionally, individual counseling can:

- Provide a safe space for voicing concerns and being heard, promoting emotional expression in a culture that often discourages it.

- Collaboratively address and alleviate psychological symptoms such as despair, worry, or lack of motivation.

- Assist in changing problematic behavioral patterns.

There are many distinct types of counseling, and various circumstances require various mental health therapy techniques. Some of them are listed below.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) - Although initially meant to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), several counselors now use it for treating chronic anxiety, depression, and other issues.

Mindfulness Training: Thoroughly dispensed mindfulness training can help you cope better with the severity of a situation. The treatment includes learning how to relax tensed-up muscles, especially in response to a trigger, appreciating simple everyday pleasures through practical exercises, reducing the monotony of daily routine, and more.

Experiential Therapy: Experiential therapy is more immersive and holistic for its takers than other forms of treatment. Experiential therapy emphasizes action over talk, helping clients unlock alternative modes of healing.

Relapse Prevention Therapy: This form of cognitive behavioral therapy helps people develop skills to prevent a foreseeable relapse. RPT plays a crucial role in a successful rehabilitation program.

Mirror Therapy: Mirror therapy is primarily directed toward amputees and stroke issues. It is used to create the reflective illusion of the affected limb to trick the amputee's brain into thinking that movement has occurred in the removed limb without pain.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy- A relatively new dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, emphasizes the development of new abilities to lessen obstacles. Mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional control are all skill modules.

Solution-Focused- The personal therapist works one-on-one with clients to analyze how they have handled issues in the past, potential exceptions, and potential next steps.

Existential Counseling - Existential Counseling in individual therapy sessions offers a holistic approach to individual counseling sessions that existential therapy attempts to provide. It's a treatment approach that aims to objectively examine the entirety of the individual's experience rather than simply the past.

Individuals can confidentially discuss issues or events with a skilled professional or personal therapist during individual therapy sessions. While individual counseling for adults may not always solve problems, it does provide people with the tools they need to deal with them more effectively. Other mental and behavioral health treatments, including family therapy or drug abuse counseling, may be combined with these types of individual therapy.

 Individual therapy programs or counseling treatments typically range from a few months to several years. The frequency and duration of personal counseling are tailored to your specific needs, treatment objectives, and progress over time.

Your initial individual counseling session with a Lifebulb therapist or counselor goes beyond simply gathering background information. We understand that taking the step to seek help can be challenging, which is why our first session focuses on providing the support you need and demonstrating that the therapy process can be effective with mutual effort and commitment.

 Accessing a therapist or counselor should be simple and efficient, which is why our process is straightforward. You can browse through our therapists' bios to find the best fit for you and schedule either a virtual individual counseling session or an in-person session online. Alternatively, you can call our office, and one of our team members will assist you in finding the right therapist or counselor based on your needs and goals. Whether you choose online therapy or in-person counseling, your therapist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan aimed at helping you achieve your specific goals.

In case of an emergency, dial 911 immediately. Although Lifebulb does not operate as a crisis center and our therapists and counselors are not emergency services, we recognize that urgent situations can arise unexpectedly. You'll have direct access to your therapist via email and phone, and they will endeavor to be available to assist you promptly. Depending on your individual counseling treatment plan, your therapist may also provide you with resources or contacts to address situations that fall outside the scope of your therapy sessions.

Upon booking a session with your designated personal therapist or counselor, you'll receive an email confirmation containing your appointment details, including the date and time, along with a link to access the virtual individual counseling room. Simply click on the provided link and log in to the virtual platform a few minutes prior to your scheduled session. Your therapist will be waiting to meet you there at the appointed time.

Scheduling an individual counseling session with us is straightforward and convenient, offering various options to suit your preferences. You can reach out to our office directly, where a team member will assist you in booking with the therapist best suited to your needs. After reviewing insurance details and pertinent policies, we'll promptly email you a confirmation of your session, whether it's scheduled for in-person or virtual counseling. Alternatively, you can browse our website to select your preferred therapist and choose a session time that aligns with your schedule. We'll then follow up with you to confirm all appointment details. You can also find us online by searching for terms like 'individual counseling near me,' 'personal counseling near me,' 'counseling in my area,' 'individual counseling services,' 'individual counseling for adults,' or 'counseling treatment.'

 At Lifebulb, our individual counseling therapists and counselors offer specialized support for a diverse range of mental health needs and concerns, both in-person and online.

Yes. All of our therapists can provide the best online individual counseling services to our clients.

 We utilize a HIPAA-compliant video counseling platform integrated into our Electronic Health Records System, ensuring a seamless experience for clients engaging in online therapy sessions. Scheduling individual counseling sessions with us is straightforward. You can either call our office or request a specific session time through our website. A team member will then assist you in booking with the most suitable therapist or confirming your online session details. We'll also review insurance information and any necessary policies, sending you a confirmation email with your session date and time, whether it's for in-person or virtual therapy.

We have a flexible cancellation policy. Call our office, online therapy center or reach out to your counselor or therapist 24 hours or more before your online counseling session time to cancel or reschedule any appointment at no cost.

Individual counseling is frequently a prolonged journey that can contribute to enhancing overall mental well-being. Research has shown that therapy can improve emotions and behaviors and is linked with positive adaptations in the brain and body. While there's no guaranteed "cure," therapy can facilitate positive lifestyle adjustments.

We accept many major commercial insurance plans for individual counsleing, including Aetna, Amerihealth, Cigna, Optum Health, United Healthcare, Tricare, and others. If you are still waiting to see your insurance listed, we would be happy to verify your benefits to see if we can accept them, and if not, offer you an affordable self-pay rate.

At Lifebulb, we operate without any ongoing membership or fees. Everyone deserves to receive the best possible individual therapy experience. And those benefits should come free of any ongoing out-of-pocket fees simply for engaging in therapy. With us, your only individucal counseling session costs will be those set by your insurance provider or our low self-pay rate.

While many practices accept only self-pay clients or out-of-network benefits, at Lifebulb, we aim to keep your costs low by accepting most major insurance plans. Often the out-of-pocket expense per session is a low copay determined by your specific insurance provider and plan. We also offer a self-pay rate lower than many practices for those without insurance or simply preferring not to use their healthcare benefits for in-person or virtual individual counseling.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely picky about who we hire to help you achieve your individual therapy goals. But we understand that every therapist may not be the perfect match for every client. If your therapy experience is less than you hoped, we will help you get set up to see someone you prefer.

We take the responsibility of maintaining your privacy seriously. Lifebulb is considered a covered entity under HIPAA guidelines, which means we are subject to all HIPAA rules and regulations.

Therapists that don't enjoy their workplace are often, unfortunately, unable to provide their clients with the best possible level of counseling and personal therapy. That's why at Lifebulb, our individual counseling therapists are our top priority. This means that your counselor or therapist can provide you, their client, with the best possible service because they enjoy the work they do in session with you, where they work, and who they work with.

Our virtual individual counseling sessions are all conducted by our therapists in private spaces, and our video platform is contained within our HIPAA-compliant Electronic Health Records system, so your face, voice, and data are always private and protected.

At Lifebulb, our biggest difference lies in our therapists. Many practices, large and small, often put growing businesses before growing people. It may sound simple, but at Lifebulb, we treat our therapists like valuable people that provide valuable individual therapy services and individual counseling services. What does that mean for our clients? While we believe therapists and counselors, regardless of where they work, do their best for their clients, we've found that therapists who genuinely enjoy where they work are able to provide higher-quality services to those they help. To that end, our primary goal at Lifebulb is to provide our therapists with the best possible environment in which to operate. In doing so, we believe Lifebulb clients are best positioned to accomplish their therapy goals through in-person individual counseling or virtual individual counseling.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely selective about the therapists we hire because we know choosing the right therapist can make all the difference in our clients reaching their individual counseling goals. Our therapists are all educated at the masters level and above and have received several years of hands-on training before becoming fully licensed clinicians. Even among the pool of highly trained therapists, we only work with those who align with our core values. That way, we know your therapist will go the extra mile to help you and offer the best online therapy or in-person individual counseling.

Lifebulb has several locations for providing in-person individual counseling services and is adding more regularly. We also provide telehealth or online therapy session services for those who may live distant from our offices.

All our counselors are highly educated and trained and have received their full clinical licensure from practicing individual counseling. We also thoroughly interview each of our therapists, ensure that they pass a background check, and train them in-house to work with us. Additionally, we ensure that each of our counselors and therapists participates in ongoing education to continue to provide the best in-person and online individual counseling services possible and to offer all possible benefits of individual counseling.

It is important that our clients work with the best possible fit as a personal therapist for their specific needs. This is why we provide detailed bios of our individual counseling therapists for our clients to review before reaching out to us. If you have a specific personal therapist in mind to work with, we would be happy to schedule you to see them. We also understand that our clients don't always match perfectly with their therapist, and in the case of a less-than-great fit, we will help you to find the right match among our team and, if necessary, provide the best referral we can to someone more suited to help you beyond our walls.

A professional counselor is a master- or PhD-level mental health professional approved by a state licensure board to diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The exact name of a professional counselor's license can vary by state, but some of the most common are: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).

We do employ licensed clinical psychologists, as psychologists can offer personal therapy services, such as individual counseling psychological testing, that many other license types are unable to offer. Many times, your counselor or therapist can work in tandem with a psychologist to provide therapy and psychological testing when necessary to better provide for your specific needs or goals. In this way, we are able to better provide for a wider range of your needs.
