Frequently Asked Questions

 

How can I get started?

Starting can sometimes be the hardest part, so let's try and make it easy.  Contact, call or email us to book a 60-90min intake session.

Do you take insurance?

We do not take insurance.  However, upon request, we will gladly submit a superbill that you may supply to your insurance carrier for third party reimbursement.

My son is 10 years old and he could really use a male role model, can you help him?

Valiance's approach is designed to support emerging adults and young professionals.  Although there's a great need for children and adolescent support, we unfortunately don't feel like we're the best people to do that work.  Valiance does not see clients under the age of 16.

What exactly is the difference between coaching and individual counseling?

Coaching is focused on supporting behaviors that improve physical health.  While the mind/body balance is precisely what we are hoping to improve, coaching in isolation is designed to help support performance and betterment.  While the results of coaching can often be therapeutic, Valiance's coaching service is not therapy.


Coaching delivers individualized results that meet your needs, wherever you are.

Counseling is the practice of forming strong, confidential, and personalized relationships to help support one's psychological and emotional health and wellbeing. 


Although trust is important in both coaching and counseling, counseling is focused on improving mental health.

Does telemental health work and what can I expect?

Although the sensation of engaging in services via live video or live phone calls is undeniably different, what you lose in some areas, you can also gain in others.

Research suggests that clients who engage in telemental health report similar outcomes compared to those who engage in person. 

With ease of access being the primary advantage, telehealth allows clients to engage in services with ease.  Sessions can be conducted from the comfort of your own home without feeling the effects of having to travel to an office or other pressures associated with an office visit.

All sessions at Valiance can be conducted remotely for your convenience. 

I think I need everything you're offering, can I do that?

100%.  We recognize the importance between physical well being and mental health.  We also recognize that adjusting and preparing for what's ahead often requires this balance.

Let's talk through what you're looking for and we can chart a course where that balance is achieved.
