Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does woman emerging file insurance?

    • We do not file insurance. However, if your insurance provider reimburses for out-of-network providers (client’s responsibility to talk with insurance provider), we can provide you with a Super Bill for services. This typically includes diagnostic and service codes, plus dates and cost of services. Please feel free to call with questions.

  • does woman emerging accept clients other than women (men, children, couples, etc.)?

    • Yes! While our specialties lie within adult women’s issues, we also have a heart for some of the particular issues adult men face. All clients are accepted based on appropriateness of fit (whether or not we’re the ones to best serve you based on our clinical expertise and training), so please call for a free consultation to see if we can help you. Check back often, as Woman Emerging’s Masters Level Interns may offer various specialties. At present, we do not accept children, adolescents, couples or families.

  • what about woman-identifying?

    • If you identify as female, you are absolutely welcome to attend ANY of Woman Emerging’s events for women (womxn). We want to be a safe, supportive, and loving space for ALL, so we do hope you’ll join us.

  • lgbtqia friendly?

    • Yes, yes, and YES. We want to explicitly note that while we do not have clinical specialties in LGBTQIA issues (we can make referrals if that’s what you’re looking for), we want to be a safe place to land for ALL people. Over the years we have been honored to serve many people in the LGBTQIA community.

  • is woman emerging counseling faith-based? how is spirituality integrated?

    • Our counseling services are not faith-based, nor are any of our workshops, events, or other community-based platforms. Our services are purely based on evidenced-based clinical practices. AND, as part of a clinical perspective, we consider spirituality to be an important part of healing, so we ask our clients about the role faith/spirituality plays in their lives so that we can be sure to integrate this into the healing process. If the client does not identify with a faith or spirituality belief system, we honor that also. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have further questions.
