Sharon Gaffney Counseling
Frequently Asked Questions - FAQS
How Do I Get Started?
Please contact me to set up an initial appointment. The client-therapist relationship is the most essential part of therapy, so I encourage you to “interview” me during our first session together so that you can make an informed decision as to whether you feel we can work together.
What Can I Expect in a Therapy Session?
Every therapy session is unique and caters to each individual and his/her own specific goals. During a therapy session, it is standard to discuss the primary concerns in your life and to then explore ways for healing and transformation.

It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, which are 50 minutes in length. Sometimes individuals or couples who are going through a particularly difficult challenge may request more time per session or more than one session a week.
What Do I bring to my first session?
Once your first session is booked, you will bring the specified forms under the “Printable Forms” tab. Please also bring a copy of your insurance card as well as any pertinent health records.
What Type of Payment is Accepted?
Accepted forms of payent: Cash, Check, Health Savings Account, Mastercard, Visa, Venmo.

I also accept the following insurances:

· ComPsych
· Medicaid

Do You Prescribe Medication?
As a licensed professional counselor, I am not authorized to prescribe. In cases where I believe medication may be appropriate to consider, I will refer you to a physician for an assessment. For clients already under a physician’s care, I will work closely with that professional to ensure that care is coordinated.
