Student FAQs

Do you take insurance?

At Gait Counseling, we do not bill insurance companies for our services. Your counselor can provide necessary documentation for you to submit to your own insurance for any potential reimbursement for utilizing an out-of-network provider. We work directly with clients to create goals together, rather than communicating with insurance companies about diagnoses, treatment plans and length of therapy. Credit and debit cards are accepted.

Can I choose my counselor?

You may choose your own counselor, or we can match you with a counselor whom we think will best meet your needs. If at any time you feel the match is not a good fit, then you can request a change to another counselor in our network. We want to make sure that you find the best possible fit for your needs.

What can I expect in the first session?

Your counselor will want to begin getting to know you and will listen to you. We want you to feel heard. For middle school and high school students, your counselor will want to, wherever possible, involve parents in part of the session.

Are my sessions confidential?

All sessions are confidential, with the exception of an indication of grave danger. For middle school and high school students, your counselor will want to, wherever possible, involve parents in the counseling process. For college students, parents will only be involved with the student’s consent.
