Frequently Asked Questions

Need help selecting a therapist? We can help.

Fully licensed: Clinician who has a master’s degree in counseling, has completed at 3000 hours of professional counseling work, and has been licensed to practice independently.

Associate license: Clinician who has a master’s degree in counseling and is licensed to practice under the supervision of a fully licensed clinician toward completion of the 3000 hours required for full licensure.


Counselor intern
: Clinician who is currently enrolled in a counseling graduate program and is practicing under the supervision of a fully licensed clinician while they complete the final practicum/internship requirement for their master’s degree.

Not typically. Counselor interns may need to record or have their supervisor sit in a few sessions during their internship, but this only happens with consent of the client. Unless you consent, you will meet with your counselor one-on-one.

“Supervision” refers to counselor interns and associate-level clinicians consulting on cases with their supervisors who can help ensure that you are getting the best possible care and assess the counselor’s clinical skills.

Chill Counseling is an inclusive practice that respects and affirms all clients, and is especially passionate about supporting clients from marginalized and minority identities. Some of our clinicians may be a part of or have experience working some communities more than other clinicians. You may voice any concerns during your consultation, and if there is not a clinician at Chill Counseling that is a good fit for you, we will reach out to our network to send you referrals that may be a better match.

Finding a therapist you connect with is important–and a priority for us! Our therapists offer a free 15-minute consultation for those who want to get a feel for the therapist before committing. We  also provide a consultation guide to help you consider various questions to ask the counselor you have selected, and questions to ask yourself. You may decide on a therapist based on a number of factors (their fee, their experience, shared identity, your intuition, etc.). If you determine our none of our therapists are a fit, we will try to connect you with other therapists in our network.

At this time, Cori Hill accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Aetna, and United Healthcare only. 

Our other therapists are not in network with any insurance companies. However, their self-pay rates are much lower and sliding scale is available for those with financial challenges.

We are happy to provide you with documentation to help you seek reimbursement from your insurance company, but we encourage you to check your benefits first by calling the member services number on your insurance card. You will want to know about coverage for mental health outpatient services.

If you have already attempted to book in the online scheduler, there are some things to keep in mind.

  1. Clinicians’ schedules vary. While some are available evenings and weekends, others may only be available weekday afternoons. You can look at our operating hours for more information.
  2. We only book up to two weeks out. This is to ensure current clients are able to d maintain consistent appointment schedules and to ensure we accept new clients who are ready to get started.
  3. Availability changes sporadically. Client’s occasionally reschedule or graduate from therapy. You can continue to check back.
  4. Some clinicians may be full. You can request to be added the therapist’s waitlist or request a referral to another clinician within or outside Chill Counseling.

At this time, our clinicians are not contracted with most EAP programs. Cori is contracted with LyraHealth and Optum EAP.

 

If you are not working with Cori and/or your employer has a different EAP program or you are not working , you can contact the EAP program to ask if they will extend your benefits to services here. Keep in mind, many EAP programs usually limit the number of sessions.
