Our parenting program is tailored to your needs and it consists of educational meetings and phone consultations involving instruction, implementation of the parenting plan, follow up discussions and on going parental support. Please inquire by email if you are interested..
It is important that parents and therapist take the time to talk thoroughly about your child's history, needs, areas of concern and treatment goals. The parent's intake process might take a few sessions prior to the beginning of the child's treatment. This meeting is 60-75 minutes long.
We offer a free of charge face-to-face 20 minutes initial consultation to prospective clients who are considering working with us. We believe that it is important that the whole family (clients and their parents) take their time to make that important choice. During the initial consultation parents and children will visit our office space and have the opportunity to know more about the therapist's work. We believe that 20 minutes is a reasonable amount of time for an initial contact. However, If you would like to discuss your child's current issues more in depth and to hear the therapist's initial impressions about your child's case it is suggested that parents schedule an initial full session.
Disclaimer: Please be advised that the consultation is an informal meeting and that the therapist's legal implications toward the client will only start after legal Consent to Treatment is established and our Office Policy is fully discussed.
Methods of payment:
We accept cash and personal checks.
If you would like to use a credit or debit card you will be responsible for an additional processing fee of about 3.5%.
That is because most PPO plans allow the client to seek treatment with professionals out-of-network or not contracted with them. If that is your case I can give you a receipt or "superbill" that you will submit to your insurance in order to be reimbursed.
Please inquire if you have out-of-network benefits for Behavioral Health (Psychotherapy) and get to understand the benefits of your insurance plan before contacting me.
Some important questions to ask your insurance provider are:
What is the deductible for your policy (amount of bills you must pay before your insurance provides coverage)?
What amount or percentage your insurance will pay/reimburse you for each session?
What is/is there the maximum number of sessions allowed per calendar year?
What is/is there the maximum amount paid for sessions per calendar year?
Which diagnoses they cover (you will need to be given a diagnosis in order to receive reimbursement for therapy services)?
