Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you in-network with my insurance?
A: No, all services are self-pay with the option of receiving a superbill for you to provide to your insurance for reimbursement. This is provided for therapy clients only.
Q: Do you provide in-person services?
A: All services are virtual.
Q: What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
A: Therapy services provide a diagnosis, treatment plan and are available for insurance reimbursement. Therapy tends to combine both goal-oriented direction with exploring how past history, trauma and family/cultural/intergenerational impact current levels of functioning.
Somatic Coaching focuses more on current and goal-oriented direction while incorporating body and movement into each session.
Both therapy and coaching honor the mind-body connection with a focus on what the body brings forward in each session and working with the nervous system.
Q: What can I expect in a session with Jacquie?
A: After the initial intake where we will discuss more background and history, sessions will blend psychoeducation, body-based and body-led interventions and "coming up for air" as Jacquie calls it to process what is happening in the body. Jacquie believes in a collaborative approach to therapy meaning you will work together in establishing the course of sessions. If home-play was discussed in previous sessions, reviewing how this went over the previous week will also be incorporated as you work together to see what tools/resources/interventions feel best for your body.
Q: What is Home-play?
A: This is a term Jacquie uses instead of the traditional "homework". One approach to learning or incorporating new skills is the concept of play and experimenting. This means trying something out, seeing what happens and being open to whatever ways it may land. Play tends to invite in curiosity vs. work which can feel rigid and obligatory. This is why Jacquie will invite you to call it home-play rather than homework.
