Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect at the initial visit?
A psychologist will meet with you to discuss your presenting concerns or general goals for treatment. Generally speaking, you will spend the first few sessions undergoing a comprehensive psychosocial evaluation (i.e., presenting concern, psychiatric history, social & occupational functioning, etc). At the end of the evaluation, you will be provided with treatment recommendations.
How long does a typical session last?
The initial evaluation and therapy sessions are typically 50-60 minutes. Assessments and psychological tests will vary in length depending on the type of test and objectives.
How much will it cost me?
Please contact us to discuss fees and services. Assessments and psychological tests will vary in cost depending on the type and batteries of tests involved. Payment is required at the time services are rendered, and may be made by cash, check, credit or debit card.
Do you accept insurance?
Some of our clinicians accept insurance (e.g., Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Humana, Tricare). For all other insurance companies, we are considered an out of network provider. This means that you will need to pay out of pocket and we will provide you with paperwork to file out of network. Generally, if you have out of network benefits, they will reimburse you at least 50% or more, and they pay you directly. You might want to call your insurance company to see what your out of network benefits are. No matter what, we can provide you with all the paperwork that you’ll need. Another option you have is to use your Health Savings or Flexible Spending Account.
How long will I be in treatment?
Treatment length depends on a number of factors, including symptom severity, therapy goals, type of intervention, progress, and client needs. Ultimately, the length of treatment will be mutually agreed upon between the client and psychologist after the initial evaluation.
