Common Questions

Do you accept insurance?

Yes, we accept most major insurance plans. However, it is a good idea to call your insurance company to check your specific plan benefits.  You can also call our office staff who can help understand your benefits.  

How does insurance work?

We will bill your insurance for you, and your insurance company will pay us directly.  You will be responsible for the balance the insurance company does not pay. 

How long does therapy take?

This is a difficult question to answer because of  the diversity of conditions we treat.  The length of therapy directly depends on  the level of severity of the condition and the type of condition we treat. 

What can I expect in a therapy session?

You can expect a comfortable experience that is professional and collaborative.  We utilize the most current techniques and research to assist in accurate diagnosis and focused treatment.  

Is therapy confidential?

The law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a doctor and their patient.  Information is not ever disclosed without written permission.  We make every attempt to maintain our patients privacy above the laws of HIPAA 

There are only several exceptions top this rule:

1. Suspected child abuse or elder abuse. The doctor is required by law to report the abuse to the appropriate authorities immediately.

2. If the patient is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s. The therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
3. If a patient intends to harm himself or herself. The doctor will make every effort to enlist the patient's cooperation to ensure their safety. If the patient is unable or unwilling to cooperate, further measures may be taken without the patient's consent in order to ensure their safety.
