Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance?

Inner Trek is a self-pay practice which means we are out-of-network for insurance providers. There are a variety of reasons we are a self-pay practice, including increased flexibility for the client. If you have a flexible spending account or health savings account, often times you are able to use this money on counseling related services. We can provide you with the necessary documentation (called a super-bill) should you like to submit an out-of-network claim.

What can I expect at the first session?

The first session is primarily used to get to know you, help you feel comfortable and informed about the counseling process, and to make sure the counseling relationship feels like a good fit for you. Just because you meet with a counselor one time doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with that person. After the first session, we want you to feel more comfortable and hopeful about the person you’re meeting with and the journey you’re undertaking. We’ll also answer any logistical questions that you have, like scheduling, frequency of sessions, communication, and payment for sessions.

What if we are planning on meeting outside and it's raining or snowing?

Someone once said, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”. We want our therapeutic work together to be effective, and sometimes there can be significant benefits from still meeting outside even if the weather is rainy or cold. We do prioritize safety for all individuals and groups and as a result will take precautions to make sure inclement weather does not jeopardize anyone’s safety. Talk with your counselor about your preferences about this, and you and your counselor can come up with a plan to make adjustments to accommodate your preference.

If inclement weather comes up during an extended therapy event or trip, guides take precautions to keep all participants safe. Inner Trek does not cancel trips due to cold or inclement weather, but may adjust plans or locations in the event that weather may impact safety of participants or established goals of the trip or event.

Do you offer Christian Counseling?

Christian counseling means a lot of different things to different people. We are Christians and we are counselors. As an ethical mandate, counselors do not impose any personal beliefs on clients. Rather, our counselors will meet you exactly where you’re at regarding your faith or understanding of spirituality. In the case that you’d like to integrate your spiritual or faith framework into the counseling process, your counselor will be ready to do that in a way that fits for you.
