Do you accept insurance?
TRCS, LLC., is a fee for service practice. This means we require payment at the time service is rendered. We prefer cash or check, but process payment with most major credit cards; Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover for your convenience. We do not bill insurance directly, but will provide our clients with receipts which include both procedural and diagnosis codes. Clients are responsible for investigating what their individual insurance companies cover and for submitting requests to their carriers for whatever reimbursement they cover. We are NOT a Medicare/Medicaid provider, so you are unable to summit bills to Medicare/Medicaid for payment, or to your secondary insurance carrier. However, each therapists is an independent contractor, with his or her independent tax ID or Social Security number. There is no Tax ID or Pin number for the practice as a whole. Your reimbursement will be based on your insurance company’s policy regarding their acceptance of your therapists individual credentials.

Can addiction be cured?
In my experience clients achieve sobriety through engagement in an individualized recovery plan. Recovery involves changes in cognitions, attitudes, and behaviors as well as increasing emotional resiliency. Through recovery, healthy habits are formed, triggers and high risk situations /people are avoided, providing the brain opportunity to heal from habitual use/acting out in addiction. Long term recovery is achieved by those committed to recovery.
How long does therapy last?
Therapy is a longer term commitment than counseling. Counseling is shorter term lasting weeks to months and addresses specific problems such as communication barriers, cognitive and behavioral issues, and stress management. Therapy helps individuals uncover and change what impedes the recovery process such as; habitual learned behaviors, unconscious unhealthy operating systems, and traumas.
Why can’t I speak with my pastor or chaplain about my problems instead of a therapist?
You can. However, therapists are trained professionals that offer assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health disorders. Chaplain and religious leaders provide guidance and education from the doctrine of ones specified faith. They are not (typically) registered psychotherapist and are not licensed to treat persons with Mental Health disorders.
