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.

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 of counseling. When a personal therapist works with you through individual therapy sessions or individual counseling sessions, you will feel empowered to regain control of your life. The therapists can offer ways to control undesirable habits or ideas and assist in identifying challenges in your life. Additionally, Individual counseling can help you in the following ways-

  • Individual counseling sessions offer people a place to voice their issues and be heard. In a culture that discourages emotional expression, psychotherapy advocates for it, which is incredibly healing all by itself.
  • You can work collectively with your therapist to eliminate, alter, or lessen any psychological symptoms—for instance, despair, worry, lack of motivation, etc.
  • Helps to change 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 treatment typically last a few months to even years. The frequency and duration of personal counseling will mostly depend on your needs, treatment goals, and progress.

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.

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.

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.

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.
