Fees for therapy are reasonable and affordable and vary depending on the specific professional service you are seeking – call us for a fee quote. We are generally a “pay in full at the time of service” Center, although we do work with certain out-of-network insurance carriers and will always present a receipt immediately following each session, along with instructions related to helping you get reimbursed by your individual insurance company within typically 2-3 weeks following each session. Payment for sessions (cash or check) is due at the time of your scheduled visit.
Q: How often and how long will I be in therapy?
The Center's therapy is short-term, action and solution-focused, which generally means that patients are seen once weekly until progress begins to occur, at which time sessions are scheduled less frequently for the purpose of maintaining treatment gains. Follow-up sessions are then scheduled once each month until you feel your goals have been met. In general, most of our patients are seen for approximately 10-12 sessions.
