When you choose to become a client at Rise Up®, you will be heard. You will create your path forward with our team teaching skills, promoting strengths use and encouraging you along the way. The journey of counseling is yours, and providers will facilitate the strengthening of your own voice as guidance to pursue your unique path.
Our clients come to us feeling anxious and overwhelmed with thoughts focused on worst case scenario “what ifs” keeping them up at night. Stress has taken a toll on the body, including intense digestive and cardiac experiences. Self-doubt and judgments dominate. Avoiding in order to accommodate anxiety has impacted lifestyle, often limiting trying new things, decision making, meeting new people and living the best life possible.
Does this sound familiar? If so, contact Rise Up® to begin rising up above the grip anxiety has. You can expect to gain from counseling a sense of self and confidence in your ability to manage symptoms and stressors. Our clients learn skills that allow them to increase self-advocacy, participation in social situations and improved decision making strategies.
Jessica Packard, LCPC, started Rise Up® in 2017 after years in the field in clinical work and management. As Jess states, "Because of my personal and professional experience, I know we are more than a diagnosis, we are a whole body and being. We are strong because of challenges, not in spite of them." Jess is honored when clients feel they can share a piece of themselves and is in awe of the strengths that she sees in her clients. Her goal, and the goal of Rise Up® is to build on these strengths to enable growth.
Strengths awareness and attention to the whole body underlie all treatment modalities used at Rise Up®. You can expect to work with your provider using traditional methods, such as CBT, along with expressive art and sand tray. To learn more about evidenced based practices, see the FAQ section below.
Values at Rise Up® are placed on client care, staff care and community connections equally. Not only do we assist our clients, but we also provide quality training for clinical interns, enabling a unique experience for them in private practice to create their own opportunities.
Managed care has increasingly dictated and impeded treatment options, so Rise Up® has made the decision to end all contracts with insurance providers. In order to provide quality client care focused on strengths rather than disease, Rise Up® is a fee for service only practice and does not accept insurance or submit documentation for out of network benefits.
We do not have a sliding scale, however sessions with interns who are working on completing training and licensure are offered at a significantly reduced rate of $30.
The client payment process is easy with our secure client portal where credit/HSA card information is entered in order to reserve sessions. The card is charged after each session without taking your treatment time! (Please know that missed sessions will also be charged.)
If you are scheduled in Suite 103, your waiting area is on the second floor.
If you are scheduled in Suite 102, your waiting area is on the first floor, connected to the treatment room in the back of the building.
One of Rise Up’s waiting areas is on the second floor, and the other has three steps, however, both offices are on the first floor and one is ramp accessible. Please let your provider know in advance if you or a family member has a preference to use the ramp for access to the building. We will plan ahead to accommodate your needs.
No, we do not provide crisis or emergency support. Each provider has business hours that will be reviewed with you and they are not available outside those hours.
In the case of an emergency, please call 911. If you or someone you love is experiencing a crisis please call the crisis hotline at (888) 568-1112.
We care about you and want the best support possible in times of crisis!
