Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer a consultation before committing to meeting for a first session with a therapist?
Yes we do offer a 15 minute consultation after you initially reach out for services with one of our therapists. The consultation will answer any other questions you may have about the therapist/ process of therapy. We do encourage clients if they decide they would like to move forward after the consultation, to meet with the therapist for at least 3 sessions to truly see if the therapist and client are a good therapeutic fit for each other.
Do you offer virtual sessions?
At this time, we are a fully virtual private practice that offers services to residents in the New York state area and New Jersey state area.
Do you accept insurances?
We are accepting limited insurances in the State of New York: Aetna, Cigna, Oscar, Oxford, and United. For clinicians that are licensed in the state of New Jersey the insurances accepted are: Aetna, Cigna, Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey, Oscar Health, Oxford, and United Healthcare. This practice is also an out of network provider for those clients that do not have the insurances listed above. We are more than happy to provide you with receipts that you can submit to your insurance to potentially get reimbursement if your insurance covers out of network mental health services.
What are the benefits to paying out of pocket?
Mental health care is considered an investment in yourself and overall quality of life. With that investment of paying out of pocket, there is an extra layer of protected confidentially when it comes to your mental health care. If you go through insurance, insurances have access to all your notes when asked for, so that is an area you are not protected from HIPPA. This can impact your right to privacy. Additionally insurance companies can place limits on the amount of sessions allocated per diagnoses, which can impact accessibility to ongoing treatment as needed.
What is the out of pocket cost per session?
Our out of pocket cost for individual and adolescent therapy ranges from $110-$130 per 50 minute session. Our out of pocket cost for couples and family therapy ranges from $175-$200 per one hour session.
