How long is a session?
A: A standard psychotherapy session is 45-50 min. 10-15 min is reserved to give the professional time to document the session, return phone calls, prepare for the next client, etc. We respect your time and make every effort not to be late. Please help us by respecting the time limit for your session. Keep in mind that some insurance companies also set limits on how long of a session they will pay for.

Do you take insurance?
A: We take some limited insurance. We always recommend you check with your insurance first to see if we are covered providers and how much they will cover. If we don’t take your insurance, you may still be able to be reimbursed if your company offers out-of-network benefits, but you will be expected to pay the full fee up front. Please call your insurance company first to find out if you will have a copay or deductible, as we cannot determine that during your session.

Do you take Medicaid?
A: Unfortunately, no.

Will you prescribe me medications?
A: No, we are psychologists, not psychiatrists, and in Pennsylvania psychologists are not licensed to prescribe medications. We are happy to work with your physician if that is needed.

How often and for how long will I need to come?
A: Generally speaking we meet with clients once per week, but this can be adjusted depending on your needs. Psychotherapy can last anywhere from one session to years, depending on the nature of the problem. We’re happy to talk about prognosis with you, but most people get the most benefit in 10 to 20 sessions.

What should I bring with me to the first visit?
A: Often nothing is needed, if we are billing your insurance you need to bring your insurance card, otherwise some other form of payment. If you are taking medications, it is often helpful to know what they are so that we know what you’re taking. Depending on the situation, past records including brain scans, neurological reports, previous psychological evaluations, school records, or other relevant records may be helpful to bring.

Do you work with couples? children?
A: Yes!
