Do you accept insurance?
Kamisha is considered "out-of-network" and can provide a "Statement of Reimbursement", also known as a "Superbill", upon request, should you choose to use your health coverage and would like to receive reimbursement for out-of-pocket payments.
Please be advised, that if you would like to use your Out of Network Benefits, you will need to sign a consent to release information to your insurance company. In addition, your therapist will need to provide a diagnosis of medical necessity for your insurance company to reimburse you for your out-of-pocket payments for your therapy sessions.
is Kamisha's therapeutic approach?
Kamisha's therapeutic approach is culturally sensitive, direct, and collaborative. She uses a framework of intersectionality to support her clients on their wellness journey. It is also important for her to guide her clients with recognizing how their childhood experiences, models for relationships, and attachment styles impact their current relationships. Kamisha often uses an integrative approach of evidenced based treatment techniques from both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Brief Solution Focused Therapy when working with individuals; in addition to implementing techniques from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method for her work with couples.
What is Sex Therapy?
Sex Therapy is a form of talk therapy intended to help individuals and couples resolve sexual difficulties and improve their relationships. Sex Therapy is designed to get to the bottom of sexual issues and reverse them.
Sex Therapy may be recommended for personal conflict issues related to sexuality and sexual trauma; conflict about the relationship including consensual non-monogamy/polyamory and infidelity; out of control sexual behaviors (i.e., sex and pornography addiction); and help with a variety of physical and emotional issues that interfere with sexual satisfaction, such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, and pain. A Sex Therapist may assign activities, such as physical touch, use of dilators and enhancers, and establishing open communication to discuss relationship stress and sexual and intimate needs.
What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy?
Coaching focuses on areas outside of trauma and mental health and you should seek Therapy for healing and processing past emotional injuries. Coaching focuses on "how" to work toward a goal, and Therapy focuses on "why" certain behaviors and patterns occur. Coaching is short-term and focuses on the future, and therapy requires a time commitment to process the pass and present. Coaching empowers you to achieve goals while therapy helps you learn to resolve core issues. Coaching sessions are structured to facilitate progress and therapy sessions vary based on modality.
can I expect during the therapy process?
Your therapist will contact you via the telephone number provided for a 15 minute phone consultation to ensure the best therapeutic fit. All intake documentation can be completed electronically and is required within 24 hours of scheduling the intake assessment. Treatment starts with an assessment, after which you and your therapist collaborate to create a treatment plan and work together efficiently to meet your goals. The therapy sessions are scheduled weekly until therapeutically appropriate to decrease to every other week.
Each person expresses different concerns and goals for therapy, therefore therapy will be tailored to meet your specific needs. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development.
It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process. The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life. Therefore, beyond the work you do in therapy sessions, suggested tools may be provided for you to use outside of therapy to support your process, such as, reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, listening to a podcast, engaging in intimate activities with your partner, logging behaviors, or acting on your goals. People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes, are open to new perspectives, and take responsibility for their lives.
