Therapy for Therapists

shaman, girl, gothic

The research shows that most therapists, mental health clinicians or counselors get into this field because they deeply care about helping others AND have experienced many of the same challenges we help our clients with. The challenge for us as successful therapists is that we often do not have the same high-quality supports we provide our clients and have to rely on our internal reserves to avoid burnout, vicarious traumatization and compassion fatigue. For new therapists, building confidence can be a major obstacle to professional development and success. You know it’s true. Who will care about you in the same way you care about your clients? At Total Ideal U, fellow therapists, we promise it’s about ALL of you.

Grace enjoys opportunities to equip groups with information, skills, tools and resources. She has presented for parent and community groups around mental health topic areas and at various national and state conferences for helping professionals in the area of anti-racist social work practice, transgenerational trauma and racial trauma.

Your Rights Under the 2022 No Surprises Act

  • You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
