Frequently Asked Questions

What is therapy like?
In the first session, your therapist will gather some background history and address with you what has motivated you to seek therapy. From there, your therapist will work with you on developing a personalized treatment plan and goals. You will be able to ask your therapist any questions that you might have. Counseling usually begins once weekly, then, as times goes on, less frequently. For some children or individuals, twice weekly is better-suited and can be discussed after the second session.
How can therapy help me?
Here at Center Point Counseling, we believe that everyone goes through a period of time in life when they could benefit from speaking with a therapist. Friends and family can provide excellent emotional support, but a counselor can give you a trained, and more objective, perspective on your life. Therapy offers an open and safe environment for you to freely explore what is troubling you and address your problems and concerns. Therapy has been proven to provide long-term and life-changing results.
How long do counseling sessions take?
The intake session can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. The following session usually last between 45 and 50 minutes, although some insurance companies will allow for 60 minute sessions.
Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between client and therapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter, often only discussed in the therapist’s office. You can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone, including other agencies, without written consent. Wilheit therapists are able to speak with staff at your school when needed (i.e., this is part of the informed consent your parent/guardian signs when they give permission for treatment). Any other disclosure requires written consent.

However, Georgia State Law and professional ethics require therapists to report in the following situations:

  • Suspected sexual abuse (including statutory rape), physical abuse, or neglect of children and elders
  • If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person.
  • If a Judge orders the therapist to testify in court
  • In the event of a medical emergency, emergency medical professionals will be contacted immediately.
