"I could never describe in 50 words or less the positive experience I have had working with Kia Wilson. Because of her practices, and methods I have become a huge advocate for therapy. She helped me navigate my emotions in a non judgmental manner, with the perfect balance of no BS. She knew when to push and challenge my belief systems, and when to allow me to process. She taught me how to develop healthier belief systems. She helped me process trauma. She opened my eyes to the toxic loop I was keeping myself in, and showed me ways to develop and heal myself as a whole. I loved her philosophies, and she brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. I always looked forward to our sessions, and I will be forever grateful for all that she taught me. I truly felt like I was talking to a good friend (with much better advice than your average friend of course). She made it very easy, and natural to develop a trusting relationship. THANK YOU!"

Our clinicians are familiar with the unique challenges of military and civil service families, personally as well as professionally.

You Aren't Alone On This Journey
Substance abuse can be a debilitating disease for the user and their loved ones. Approaching treatment from an empirically-based stance helps improve chances for success. As clinicians who understand that substance abuse is often comorbid with psychiatric conditions, successful treatment involves addressing both, along with a focus on overall holistic wellness.
Got questions? We’ve got answers!
Choosing an effective Psychotherapist is like choosing a life partner - chemistry and trust are essential to a successful working relationship. Our clinicians go above and beyond to create culturally competent and emotionally safe spaces for clients, striving to make their experience as pleasant as possible. Take a look at some answers to the most frequently asked psychology-related questions and requests below.
How long is each therapy session?
Individual therapy sessions are 50 minutes long. Family/couples sessions are between 60-90 minutes. Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) groups are one hour per week for 12 weeks. Sessions are conducted via a HIPAA complaint video conferencing software. You will receive the link to log on prior to the session.
What is your theoretical orientation?
As skilled clinicians, we pull from a variety of theoretical orientations to deliver a tailored experience for our clients; however, our foundation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Mindfulness. These theoretical orientations have proven efficacy in treating a variety of presenting concerns. As specialists, we have additional training and certifications (above what is required to maintain our licensures) in the areas of grief, trauma, DBT and teletherapy.
Do you accept insurance?
We offer services via private-pay and Anthem BC/BS insurance. All other insurances will be out-of-network; however, we can provide a "super bill" to you for direct reimbursement from your insurance company in accordance to your policy.
Why self-pay? With insurance billing, clinicians must diagnose you with a medical condition that becomes a part of your permanent medical record. For those who are concerned about their career/clearances, self-pay may be the preferred option. Also, as a clinician who specializes in trauma and mood/affect disorders, it may be difficult to provide the course of treatment we and the client deem necessary, as the insurance company oversees treatment planning. Self-pay allows you (as the client) to direct treatment.
How much will I get reimbursed from my insurance for out-of-network providers?
Reimbursement rates differ between insurance companies, so you should contact your insurance provider to obtain information on reimbursement for out-of-network therapy session; the number of out-of-network sessions that your plan covers; and whether approval is required from your PCP. I am able to provide a "super bill" for you to submit to your insurance company for direct reimbursement.
