Answers to Common Questions

What is Avoidant Personality Disorder (AVPD)?

AVPD is a mental health condition characterized by long-standing feelings of inadequacy, extreme sensitivity to what others think about them, and social inhibition. People with AVPD are plagued by a fear of rejection and criticism, leading them to avoid social situations and close relationships.

How do I know if I have Avoidant Personality Disorder?

Diagnosis should be made by a qualified mental health professional, based on a thorough assessment. Common signs include intense fear of rejection, social withdrawal, low self-esteem, and reluctance to engage in new activities or take risks due to fear of embarrassment.

Can Avoidant Personality Disorder be cured?

While there's no cure for AVPD, effective treatment options, including counseling and sometimes medication, can help manage symptoms, improve social skills, and increase self-esteem, significantly improving quality of life.

What are the costs associated with counseling or therapy sessions at Foundations?

At Foundations, each counseling or therapy session costs $200, or you can opt for a double session at $360. We also provide additional savings through our Healing Journey Packages, which are prepaid sessions available in bundles of 5, 10, 15, or 20, offering discounts that increase with the number of sessions purchased.

Does Foundations accept Insurance?

Foundations will provide any necessary documentation for you to submit for reimbursement with your insurance company. This approach ensures greater privacy, avoids mandatory diagnoses, offers more therapist choices, and promotes tailored session lengths, facilitating a personalized therapeutic experience without external constraints or documentation shared with insurance companies.

What if I need to reschedule my counseling session?

There is no charge for any session cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.

Are you available in the evenings or on weekends?

What does Avoidant Personality Disorder counseling involve?

Counseling typically involves psychotherapy methods like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to address negative thought patterns, enhance social skills, and gradually expose individuals to feared social situations in a controlled manner to reduce sensitivity to potential rejection or criticism.

What if I'm too anxious to start counseling?

It's common to feel anxious about starting therapy. Many counselors offer online sessions or can work with you to create a comfortable, supportive environment that respects your pace and boundaries.

Can online counseling be effective for AVPD?

Yes, online counseling can be highly effective, especially for those with AVPD, as it allows participation from a safe, familiar environment, which can sometimes make it easier to engage in therapy.

Will I have to participate in group therapy?

While individual therapy is often the primary mode of treatment for AVPD, your counselor might suggest group therapy as a way to practice social skills in a safe, therapeutic setting. Participation is always at your discretion.

How can family and friends support someone with AVPD?

Support can include encouraging them to seek counseling, being patient, offering unconditional support, avoiding criticism, and gently encouraging small steps towards social interaction.

What's the first step I should take if I think I have AVPD?

The first step is reaching out to Foundations for an assessment. Acknowledging you might need help is a significant, brave first step towards recovery.
