FAQs

How Long are Sessions?

Typical sessions around about 50 minutes

How does the insurance process work?

We bill for insurance through our practice for in-network and most out-of-network providers. All copayments or deductibles are due at the time of service. If you have an out-of-network provider, full payment is due at time of service.

What does the intake process look like?

Once we confirm a first session, you will receive an email to log into our client portal and complete the intake paperwork (sometimes this email goes to spam or the promotions folder.) The first session is more of a ‘get-to-know you’ session. It is important that you feel comfortable with your counselor to get the full benefit from counseling. After the first session, we will look at scheduling future sessions.

How frequently are session?

This depends on each individual. We like to schedule weekly for the first 4-6 weeks to develop a rapport, but understand this is not always feasible. Most common after the 4-6 week period is every other week (though weekly and monthly are common as well).

What do I do with my kiddos during session?

Babies in arms or slightly mobile are welcome in parent sessions. Once the baby grows into a fully mobile toddler, this will be discussed on a case by case basis with the clinician. Some parents don’t feel they will get the most out of a session with baby – and that is OK too. We don’t want lack of infant childcare to be the reason not to take care of yourself.

If this session is for the child, we will discuss this at the intake. Often the intake will be with only the caretaker (to get a full description of concerns without harming the child) and the following sessions will include the child.

If the child is over the age of 14, then it us up to the teenager if a parent will be allowed in the session – sorry parents, it is the law.

What is your sliding scale?

Our sliding scale varies depending on clinician.
For fully licensed clinicians it is $90-130
Tentatively Licensed Clinicians under Supervision is: $50-85
Interns under supervision is: $20-$45

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, major credit cards and most FSA/ HSA plans. Copayments and self payments are due at time of service. Deductibles will be invoiced after reviewed by insurance
