    • Checking your benefits

      • Before your  first session, please call your insurer to find out about your individual plan.  You can learn about your benefits by asking the following questions:

        • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

        • Do I have a mental health deductible and has it been met?

        • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

        • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

  • Cancellation policy: If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment and you have not notified your therapist at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay an $80 cancellation fee.  Insurance benefits do not cover the cost of missed appointments.  Therefore, the cost is your responsibility.

"Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today."
