Getting Started

“The experience of emotional overwhelm is similar to that of a shaken bottle of soda. Inside the bottle is a tremendous amount of pressure. The safest way to release the pressure is to open and close the cap in a slow, cautious and intentional manner so as to prevent an explosion.” (Rothschild, 2010)

We believe that a face to face conversation is the best approach to determine good fit.  The first step to get started is to contact us and set-up an initial consultation. At this meeting, we will gather information, discuss your concerns and clarify goals.

When treating children and teens, the clinician will first meet with parents, follow-up with one or two individual meetings with the child, and then regroup with the family to discuss findings, recommendations and develop a collaborative plan for proceeding.

Billing and Payments:

At this time, we are not on any insurance panels. However, we do have the ability to bill your insurance provider on your behalf the same day of service. If you have PPO coverage, your insurance will pay for our services at their out-of-network rate and you will be responsible for the difference (co-pay). We recommend that you contact your insurance company to find out the out-of-network rate for counseling. The CPT Codes that you need to inquire about are 90791 for the Initial Assessment, 90837 for ongoing individual and 90847 for family therapy sessions.

Payment can be made by check or credit card and is due the day of service.

The rate for an initial assessment/appointment is $175 an hour, ongoing traditional 50-minute sessions is $150. Therapist bill for a 60-minute session, but sessions end at the 50-minute mark in order to allow for proper record keeping and billing time.

The T.E.A.M Treatment Model recommends longer sessions for more rapid results and these are available and billed at $150 an hour. Please be advised that your insurance company may only reimburse for up to 60 minutes of treatment.
