Comprehensive Answers

Do you offer sliding scale rates?

We do not offer a sliding scale.  We do not accept insurance.  Insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis at the first session and payment is not guaranteed.  They also have some level of access to our records for various reasons.  We prefer not to work within the limits of a mental health diagnosis and we prefer that not even insurance companies have access to our confidential records unless requested by the client.   We have also found that clients who personally invest in their sessions have greater lasting outcomes.  Square invoices allow clients to pay with debit, credit, health savings or flex spending cards. We also accept Care Credit with advance notice.

How long does each therapy session take?

Therapy sessions typically last 60 minutes.  Some sessions such as initial sessions and couples' sessions may last up to 90 minutes.  The rates for virtual and in person sessions are the same.

Do you use Freudian or Jungian analysis techniques?

Stopping the Chase uses a combination of therapy models based on the clients' needs and desires.  These could include talk therapy, CBT, DBT, EMDR, Brainspotting, Gottman Method and other modalities as needed based on the clinicians' scope of practice.
