FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM WORKING WITH INSPIRED FOR THERAPY SERVICES?
You can expect warmth, empathy, and an evidence-based approach to your identified needs. These services are provided on an individual basis (e.g. group therapy is not currently offered). Logistically, the first session includes a discussion of: confidentiality and the limits of confidentiality, Inspired policies, an overview of therapeutic approach, a discussion of what brings you to therapy, and next steps to take. Essentially, the first session is laying the foundation and getting to know each other to determine if we are a good fit. If it is agreed upon that we are a good fit, we would develop a plan for the scope of our work together.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES FOR CONSULTATION AND THERAPY SERVICES?
Given the unique needs of individuals and organizations, our rates are variable for consulting services and will be determined after receiving your completed information sheet and free 15 minute phone consultation.
Rates for therapy are aligned with the degrees and experience of the provider and are $175 per hour. There is no sliding scale for services.

DO YOU ACCEPT HEALTH INSURANCE?
No. This allows us to have a smaller caseload and offer specialized service that is tailored to your needs. If you wanted to pursue “out of network” benefits through your insurance provider, let us know immediately upon expressing interest in therapy and you will be provided with documentation that you would need to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement from them.
WHY IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY?
At Inspired Consulting & Psychological Services, we value your time and set aside time that is solely reserved for you. Thus, we require 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel your appointment. If you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, a cancellation fee of $85 will be charged to the card on file. Additionally, if you no-show for an appointment, a missed session fee of $85 will be charged.
DO YOU PROVIDE IN-PERSON SERVICES?
No. Currently, our consultation and therapy services are 100% virtual. Yet, at the time of scheduled sessions, therapy clients typically need to be located in Missouri. It should be noted that, due to recent PSYPACT legislation, Dr. Sconyers may be able to provide telehealth in additional states. If you are outside of Missouri and seeking therapy services, let Dr. Sconyers know this in your free phone consultation to determine your eligibility.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY OR CONSULTATION SESSION LAST?
Unless otherwise indicated or agreed upon, therapy and consultation sessions last approximately 50 minutes.
