Where do you see clients?
My office is conveniently located at the Ridge Hill Mall in Yonkers, NY. There is easy access to the free way, convenient garage parking, and food options if clients want to grab a quick bite before or after a therapy session. Parents or baby sitters have a safe and fun place to walk around while their child is in session.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You have a few great options. You can call me at 702-204-7513, email me at email@example.com or send me a message via my website. Be sure to leave me a good number or the best way to contact you and also suggest a few times when I can call you. I will get back with you within 1 business day.
What should I expect?
An initial consultation will last about 90 minutes and will include a full diagnostic assessment. Inquiry will surround the following topics: current difficulties, medical, family, work and relationship history, past treatment including hospitalizations, your goals for treatment.
Sessions following the initial assessment are typically 45-50 minutes.
Longer sessions are indicated when working on exposure therapy for OCD, panic, or phobias, however this will be explicitly discussed prior to scheduling appointments. In rare cases when children or sometimes adults are unable to tolerate a full 45 minute session due to extreme anxiety or mood disturbance, shorter sessions may be offered to help them ease into treatment. Again, this will be discussed prior to scheduling.
How often do I come?
Treatment needs for each client are different. Weekly appointments are most typical, however more or less frequent visits will be recommended when needed.
What should I bring?
Once we connect and schedule an appointment, I will send you a link to your own secure “patient portal.” You will be asked to set up a secure log in and complete the required paper work on the portal. I will have access to your forms on the portal, so you do not need to print these out. It is helpful if you brought hard copies of any medical reports, medication lists, previous psychological evaluations or discharge summaries from in-patient psychiatric stays.
Do you take insurance?
No, I do not take insurance. However, I can provide you with a Superbill to submit to insurance for out of network benefits so that you can receive reimbursement directly from your insurance company.
What forms of payment are accepted??
Check, Credit Card and Cash are all accepted.
