  • What do you charge for therapy sessions?
    I charge $165 for a 55 minute counseling session. We keep your credit card on file and charge it the morning of your session. We do also accept most major insurances
  • How long will counseling sessions last?
    Each session is 50 minutes long. The duration of counseling varies based on the clients needs. Some clients will see tremendous improvement quickly and only need counseling for a couple months. Some people are best served having counseling as an ongoing self-care method and stay in counseling for years.
  • Will you accept my insurance?
    I am in network with Optum, United Healthcare, Blue Cross, Regence, Aetna, Mountain Health CO-OP, Select Health, and Medicaid. With all other insurances, I am an out-of-network provider. I can provide an invoice at the end of each month that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Usually you pay the full fee upfront and get a percentage of it back but it varies upon your insurance provider.
  • How do I schedule a session
    We have a few links on the home page of our site you can click on to schedule a session online. Or you can call us (208) 615-9828 or email matthew@gemstatewellness.com
  • Do you see both children and adults?
    Yes! I have extensive experience working with children and adults. I do focus a lot on children on my site and blog posts because it is a niche that is underserved and I want to make sure parents can find me when searching for help for their children.
