Treatment begins with a comprehensive diagnostic clinical interview to identify risk factors, core issues, and maintenance characteristics of the presenting problem(s). This might involve several sessions of gathering information and assessment before prescribing a customized treatment plan. When treating minors, we will ask to meet with the parents or legal guardians before or after meeting with the identified child or adolescent patient.
Once the problem(s) have been clearly identified, we will outline our recommendations and begin treatment. When working with minors, we will almost always ask to meet with the patient’s parents on a regular basis to provide updates and coordinate treatment. Depending on the severity, intensity, and duration of the presenting problem(s), sessions may be either weekly or twice-weekly.

Payment & Insurance
Payment is due in full at the time of session in the form of cash or check, except for group therapy which is billed monthly. Patients can also pre-pay for sessions by credit card via the “Make Payment” link on the top right of this website. We are out-of-network with insurance.
After formulating a diagnosis, we can provide a monthly billing statement/receipt for patients to submit to their insurance for out-of-network reimbursement. After the deductible has been met, most insurance plans reimburse 60%-80% of the allowable amount for out-of-network mental health benefits. CPT codes to inquire about are: 90791 (intake), 90834 (individual), 90846 (without patient), 90847 (patient + family), and 90853 (group).
When initiating treatment, we are reserving a special time for patients each week. Except for emergencies, we request 48 hours advanced notice to cancel or reschedule sessions or the patient will be responsible for the full session fee.
If there is a need to discuss patient information with outside professionals, we will request written consent from the patient or his/her legal guardians. We will only break confidentiality in instances when the patient is a danger to themselves or others or when there is suspicion that the patient is being abused.
In the event of an emergency, patients should call 911 and/or go to the nearest emergency room. Patients should not call the office regarding an emergency as we do not provide 24 hour patient coverage.
