What to expect in a counseling session
If this is your first experience in counseling, try to relax. My role is to provide a safe and comfortable setting in which you will be able to discuss your concerns. I have some training, but you are the expert on you. My role is to collaborate with you to find solutions. I will ask you to complete a few forms that will help me understand you better. I will provide you with confidentiality information and inform you of your client rights and responsibilities.
Claudia McGrath no longer bills any insurance for her services. If you have a Health Services Account, she will be able to provide you with the needed documentation for you to receive reimbursement through your HSA account. Payment for sessions is due at the time of the service through either PayPal, Venmo or by check.
If you are a Microsoft employee and plan to use Wellspring EAP for your services, Claudia will bill Wellspring EAP directly for your services.
Claudia McGrath's Approach
My approach to working with clients is respectful, collaborative, and solution focused. I have a very thorough assessment and screening process and I do refer to other mental health, medical and service providers when appropriate. I have a special interest in women's issues, shame resiliency, grief, trauma, individual, mental health, family and couple counseling. My goal is to assist you with attaining agreed upon treatment goals and improve coping skills, insight, and functioning. I do not offer any addiction group therapy or DUI seminars in my practice.
