FAQ

What should I expect?
Your visit to Pinnacle of Purpose will resemble other appointments you’ve had in the past. When you enter the office, you will be greeted by a receptionist. The receptionist will have you complete paperwork if you have not done so prior to your arrival. If you are unsure of how to answer some of the questions, you can wait until our visit to discuss. Once you have a good understanding of the questions asked and have completed your paperwork, we will dive into what brought you to therapy. Your therapist will ask questions about your relationships (children, marriage, family and/or friends) and your career. You will have an opportunity to understand your therapists clinical style to ensure you guys are a good fit (ideally this should occur during your FREE consultation).  You and your therapist will move into clearly defining therapy goals, including therapy focus, length and therapy methods.

Throughout your therapeutic journey, you will be asked to do “homework”. The purpose of these assignments are for you to incorporate what has been discussed in therapy into your day-to-day routine. It creates opportunity for reflection until you meet with your therapist again.

What if I need to cancel?
Life happens! If you have to cancel your appointment please do so 24 hours in advance. Otherwise you will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee.

 

Can you prescribe medication?
No. If you and your therapist agree medication is necessary,  your therapist will refer you to a psychiatrist or your primary care physician. If your psychiatrist or primary care physician feels it is appropriate to prescribe medication, we would like to speak with your therapist to ensure the best treatment plan possible. You will have to give your therapist permission to speak with other providers. Your therapist will forward you a “Release of Information” form via the client portal prior to reaching out to other members of your health care team.

 

Will my information be kept confidential?
Yes. The therapeutic relationship is built on trust, professionalism and confidentiality. However, our therapists are obligated to disclose if 1) there is immediate threat of harm to oneself or others, 2) a suspicion of child or elder abuse; and/or,3) in the case of court subpoena.
