Intake Paperwork

Prior to the intake evaluation session, clients receive an intake packet which they fill out and bring with them to the first session. These documents will be provided upon the scheduling of your first appointment.com.

Initial Evaluation Session and Goal Setting

An initial evaluation session takes approximately one hour, and during the meeting the therapist and patient assess the fit in working together while establishing a treatment plan which consists of clear interventions aimed at achieving collaboratively-defined goals.

Therapy Sessions

Subsequent sessions generally last 45-50 minutes, and follow the general structure of checking in, reviewing goal progress, covering new psycho-educational topics and material, and collaborative determination of the next round of between-session objectives. In addition to work completed during sessions, patients usually have between-session assignments which involve practicing specific techniques in support of pursuing their treatment goals.

Frequency of Therapy Sessions

Many clients begin with a series of weekly sessions, and then space out to biweekly or monthly sessions as they begin to meet their treatment goals by mastering their new skills. Clients work actively during sessions, and those who consistently practice tools and techniques between sessions show the largest and most rapid improvements.

Using Insurance

We Provide Superbills

We are not in-network with any insurance providers. For patients who would like to use insurance, our therapists can provide monthly “superbill” statements of service to patients who have a PPO plan and would like to receive reimbursement for out of network services. Patients interested in doing so are encouraged to contact their insurance company to determine out-of-network mental health benefits coverage including annual deductible amount and the percentage of total out of pocket fee reimbursed.

Cancellations

Patients must notify our therapists of cancellations at least 48 hours prior to their scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for their session.
