How frequent are therapy sessions and how long does therapy last?

Each person’s situation is unique. Your treatment plan will be individualized to best meet your unique needs and goals. Some people may have only a few sessions. Others may see a therapist as part of their recovery or wellness plan for years. Most people are somewhere in between.

Your counselor can make recommendations, but ultimately, it’s your decision about when to discontinue or resume therapy. Many people stop and start therapy several times as needs arise throughout different seasons of their lives. We support your decisions and have clinicians ready when you need them.

In what areas does your clinic specialize?

Our professional counselors treat a wide range of mental health conditions. Browse our directory to see some of their specialties. If you don’t see what you’re looking for or have questions, reach out to our Central Access Team.

Can I choose my therapist?

Yes! Review our list of therapists to find someone who you think fits your needs. Then, contact our Central Access Team to get started. Or, if that person is not available or you are not sure who to choose, talk to our Central Access Team for help in finding a specialist who is right for you.

Do you offer telehealth appointments?

Yes. You can choose in-person and telehealth therapy. Talk with your counselor about which option is best for you. We want to make your therapy as accessible, convenient, and flexible as possible.

In-person mental health therapy is offered at our Bloomington clinic. If you are also a client in Progress Valley residential or outpatient substance use treatment, you may receive therapy for co-occurring conditions in Bloomingto or at one of our other locations.

How much does therapy cost?

With a qualifying diagnosis, insurance typically covers part of all of therapy costs. Plan details vary, so you may have to pay for part of your treatment through a deductible, copay, or coinsurance.

We also accept self-payment for therapy. Some people elect this option because it provides more privacy and flexibility regarding your diagnosis and treatment frequency and duration. Our Central Access Team is happy to answer your questions and discuss insurance eligibility and options.

Which insurance plans do you accept?

Progress Valley accepts many types of insurance. Call the Central Access Team or your insurance provider to discuss details.
