Frequently Asked Questions

Have Questions About Therapy

DO I NEED COUNSELING?

This is likely the most frequently asked question that we receive at LiveBeyond Counseling. In short, we believe it could be. Counseling is a highly personal, very specific thing between therapist and client(s) in which the client receives assistance determining their needs, goals, strengths, and abilities in order to improve their lives and the lives of those around them.

Every individual seeks therapy for different reasons according to their own story. We believe that anyone at anytime in their lives could face concerns that they are not sure what to do with and need to seek assistance from a counselor. And that’s okay.

HOW LONG WILL I BE IN COUNSELING?

Counseling is different for everyone. What we’ve found is that most of our clients only need therapy for a few months in order to get a good handle on their concerns and be able to thrive on their own. This means that 10 sessions or maybe just a few more could help you to improve your emotional and relational state for many years to come.

Some clients need more sessions than that, some less, but we promise to maintain the utmost integrity in creating a plan with you and helping you to get going in the right direction as efficiently and as effectively as possible.

WHAT WILL MY FIRST SESSION BE LIKE?

By the time you come in for your first session, you will have already called or emailed our Client Care Coordinator, received an email with your secure portal link, and completed your intake forms through the portal. It’s imperative that you complete those forms BEFORE the first session so that you can spend your time wisely in session from day one.

During your session, your therapist will facilitate a discussion about your goals for therapy, needs, strengths, and begin a plan to help you find hope and happiness. You’ll schedule your next appointment and perhaps agree on some first steps in reaching your goals.

WHY DO MANY CLIENTS CHOOSE TO PAY OUT-OF-POCKET FOR THERAPY EVEN IF THEY HAVE INSURANCE COVERAGE?

Many people feel limited by the choices available through their insurance so they choose to pay out-of-pocket or use a Health Savings Account. Many of our clients are willing to self-pay because they received a referral to LiveBeyond from a trusted source who knows the quality of our service.

Some clients self-pay because they feel better that information about their diagnosis and treatment is not being reported back to their insurance company and no outside company will be asking questions about their treatment.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

We have chosen not to be paneled with insurance companies because it helps us retain the autonomy we need to provide you with an excellent experience. Insurance companies place limitations on therapists about the length of sessions, covered diagnoses, and covered treatments. Insurance companies also require therapists to spend valuable time providing documentation to justify your therapy, including information about your diagnosis, treatment goals, and progress. We would rather provide a more confidential process and use that valuable time to make sure we are giving you the attention and excellent service you deserve.

DO YOU OFFER LONGER, MORE INTENSIVE SESSIONS?

LiveBeyond Counseling does offer longer, more intensive counseling sessions for clients who wish to front-load or get a head start on their treatment. Sessions can be extended beyond the typical 45-50 minute session (Rates: $120-$150/session) in multiple ways:

60 minute sessions – Normal Rate +25%

90 minute sessions – Normal Rate x 2

Multi-day Intensives – Some clients wish to focus more intensely in the beginning on counseling, often leading to more rapid results. Couples on the brink of divorce, individuals with significant anxiety, and others may benefit greatly from taking a few days and doing multiple sessions within each day, perhaps interspersed with other healing activities such as massage/spa, hikes, etc. As Intensives are significantly more labor intensive for staff and provide such great value, rates are calculated on request. Contact us for more information.

DO YOU OFFER MARRIAGE RETREATS?

LiveBeyond Counseling is in the process of developing a Marriage Retreat program in which LBCC will be providing marriage retreats throughout the year in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Retreats will provide a fun, engaging time in which small groups of couples can celebrate their relationships and progress in marriage counseling alongside LBCC staff in a less rigid, more relaxed atmosphere. All “graduating” couples will be invited to a marriage retreat as a sort of capstone event in their relationship investment with LiveBeyond.

Retreats will include: time in small groups and as individual couples with a therapist, couples massages, fantastic accommodations, delicious food, time outdoors, romantic moments, and more.
