Common questions about therapy:

You find your self struggling to be yourself. Your every day life is suddenly affected. You may experience difficulties sleeping, concentrating, being productive at home and at work. Despite trying everyday to get out of this mode, you find that you are "stuck" in this mode. You try your hardest to find the answers to what is affecting you and you are unable to understand what is taking place. This is the time where therapy can help.

Most sessions last 50 minutes. Couples counseling is different than individual and adolescent counseling. More time is needed to most effectively address the needs of the relationship. Couples sessions can be provided in both 1 hour and 1.5 hour sessions depending on the intensity of treatment desired.

It is our policy to disclose all fees during our first contact, before you make your first appointment.

  • Please note that payment is due at the time that services are rendered, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
  • Accepted forms of payment are  checks, cash, Visa and Master Card.

When you meet with your clinician for the first time, an intake interview will take place. This is the beginning of the information gathering process. Some of the typical questions that are asked are about your physical health, what brings you to counseling and symptoms that you are experiencing.

We will begin to formulate some goals for counseling and steps to take to get there. This also gives us an opportunity for us to get a sense of what it's like to work together.

If, at the end of the first session, we decide for any reason that your needs would be better served by someone else, we will do our best to provide you with more appropriate referrals.

Only psychiatrists and other medical doctor's are licensed to prescribe medication. Our center has close working relationships with local psychiatrist who are knowledgeable, ethical and caring.

Medication is not always recommended for clients. However, if at any point during treatment the symptoms or conditions worsen, medication may be a viable solution for symptoms that become unmanageable such as non-situational depression and/or anxiety. However, please keep in mind that the final choice is always yours.

Our therapists will work closely with your psychiatrist and/or medical doctor to make sure that you are receiving the best care for your needs.

We are out of network with most insurance companies but in certain circumstances we are able to work with your insurance provided you have a PPO plan that allows for out of network benefits, and the out of network benefit has been met.

We can provide you with a Superbill or account statement that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please ask your clinician for specific information on how to navigate this.

Some of our clinicians may be in network with specific insurance plans like Cigna. As of August 1st, 2020- Sarah Rohan, LMHC was accepted into the network with Cigna and is presently accepting new clients.

What are the benefits of paying out of pocket?

Paying out of pocket for therapy rather than using insurance benefits can be advantageous for several reasons:

Confidentiality
Access to your records is usually limited to you and your counselor. However, some managed care companies require periodic chart reviews by their Quality Assurance Department. Additionally, all managed care companies require your counselor to provide a diagnosis and submit treatment plans when requesting additional sessions on your behalf. Ask your counselor for more information or to see the reporting forms if you are using a managed care plan and have concerns about your privacy.

Flexibility:
There are no restrictions placed on how you choose your counselor and what services you design in partnership with your provider. The plan of care and the payment of services are discussed and set by mutual agreement.

Autonomy:
The length of care, frequency of sessions and other aspects of work you do together are entirely up to you and your counselor

Cancellation Policy
It is our policy to charge for appointments that are not kept.  We ask clients to notify the office via voice mail within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment in case of an emergency. Please remember that the time is set aside exclusively for you.

Online therapy also known as Telehealth is a way to have your counseling session from the privacy of your home or work from your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device (IOS or Android)

Online therapy is as effective and helpful as live sessions. For many, being able to have counseling from the safety and warmth of your home is quite appealing. Research now indicates that virtual talk therapy as a result of COVID-19 has become an important way to receive therapy services.
