Frequently Asked Questions

Who can be seen for therapy?
What you share in your therapy sessions is confidential, which means that the information stays between you and your therapist. The only exceptions to confidentiality, in which your information is mandated by law to be reported, are 1) in cases of child, elder, and disabled person abuse or neglect; 2) if you are at risk of seriously harming yourself or someone else; or 3) if your therapist is subpoenaed to testify in court. Outside of these three exceptions, you must release in writing any information that you would like to be disclosed to someone outside of the relationship between yourself and your therapist.
What is the session rate?
Session rates vary between providers and generally range from $120-$175/session.
Do you accept insurance?
No, we don't take insurance. If you want to take advantage of your insurance benefits, receipts can be submitted for out-of-network reimbursement, as well as assist you in meeting your annual deductible.
How long does therapy last?
The therapy process can vary in length depending on your needs. Therapy sessions typically last 50 to 90 minutes, although can be longer or shorter as needed. You and your therapist can discuss length of time needed for therapy in more detail during your initial session and throughout therapy.
How often do we meet for my therapy appointments?
Appointments can range from as much as three times a week to once every few months depending on your personal need for therapeutic support. Your therapist will make recommendations about what may be most appropriate to ensure that your needs are met.
Why is your practice called Heart Space Counseling Center?
We want our clients to achieve a heart-centered life, and that is what our therapy helps people to do!
Madison Hedlund describes living a heart-centered life, focused on the heart space, in the following way: "When you are heart-centered, you listen to your feelings without letting them control your every move. You listen to your feelings with maturity and grace. You don’t spend money you don’t have just because you felt like buying that new shirt. You aren’t throwing fits just because you are angry, and you don’t eat a whole cake just because it looks good. The heart-centered feelings we are talking about are deep satisfaction with life. They are the richness. They are better than the fleeting feelings, and when aligned, those little temptations to stray from our values feel less pulling. The more connected you are with your heart, the more your life will reflect a life of peace."
