Treatment FAQ

Treatment Plan

Consultation & Psychotherapy:
Therapy begins with an evaluation of your particular needs.  After an initial consultation session, you and your therapist will have identified key issues and your therapist will provide a recommendation regarding treatment plan.  Should we decide to work together, we will schedule once or possibly twice weekly sessions as needed.  The length of treatment will depend upon the focus of treatment and whether we are addressing a short-term goal or an issue that benefits from a more open-ended approach.

Fees & Insurance:
Fees will be discussed during the initial consultation.  You may also feel free to contact us directly in advance with any questions concerning fees and insurance.  While we do not bill insurance companies directly, if you have a PPO or another plan that allows you to select an out-of-network provider, you may be eligible for reimbursement.  While you are responsible for payment at the time of service, we can assist reimbursement by directly submitting a billing statement to your insurance company on your behalf.

Insurance benefits (e.g. deductibles and coinsurance) can vary significantly according to plan and employer.  Your employer may also revise your benefits during the course of treatment.  For this reason, we recommend verifying the extent of your out-of-network mental health (aka “behavioral health”) benefits prior to consultation as well as tracking any changes in coverage regularly thereafter.
