Initial Intake Interview
The first interview will take about an hour. I will be asking questions and giving you an opportunity to fill me on your concerns.
If the therapy is for a child, the first meeting is with his or her parents, so I can get as much relevant background information as possible before meeting with your child. By the end of the first meeting we will have an initial treatment plan.
I do accept Medicare, but I do not participate with private insurance companies. As such, I would be considered an out-of-network provider with any of these third party payers. It is important that you contact your insurance company to ask about reimbursement rates for an out-of-network, licensed Psychologist. I ask that payment is made at the time that services are rendered.
Payment can be made by check or credit card. A sliding scale fee can be negotiated under certain circumstances.
