EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a psychotherapy that enables clients to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes. EMDR uses eye movements to guide clients to process difficult emotions on a rational level and make it to where the client is able to recall a traumatic experience without the memory being completely debilitating. During an EMDR session, both hemispheres of the brain are activated which allows the brain to naturally process traumas (i.e., car accidents, surgeries, complicated grief, stuck points). It is also beneficial in working with anxiety, depression, and helping you achieve your goals.
You can get more information on EMDR therapy by speaking with an EMDR certified therapist - ask our office how you can schedule a session.
EAP, or Employee Assistance Program, is a program that offers a certain amount of free counseling sessions through a company contracted with your employer. You can find out if you are elligible for an EAP by contacting your employer to see if they offer these benefits. Each EAP company uses a different billing process, so it is important to have your EAP information ready for when you schedule an appointment. Before scheduling an appointment, you need to contact the EAP company to get an authorization to use their benefits. They will give you a list of counselors who accept their EAP then you call us at Copper Creek to schedule an appointment. You will need to know the name of the EAP you are using, how many sessions you are allowed and your authorization number if one is needed.
As a courtesy to you, each therapist here at Copper Creek Counseling will submit claims to insurance on your behalf. Prior to your first appointment, please confirm with your insurance company their policy related to counseling services provided by your counselor and your co-pay and deductible amounts for these services. Please bring this information with you to your first appointment.
Although your counselor may be in network with your insurance, that is not a guarantee of coverage. After submitting claims to your insurance, it may take a few weeks for payment to come through - this is why it is important for you, the client, to ask your insurance what you may owe for a session before your scheduled appointment, such as co-pays, deductible, etc.
You can visit our Financial page for more information.
