Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take my insurance?

Most of our therapists are providers for the major health insurance companies. You can call the number on the back of your benefits card to see if a specific therapist is a provider for your insurance.

If you don’t accept my insurance, is there a sliding scale for payment?

Some of our therapists do offer sliding scale fees. You must speak with the individual therapist.

What does it mean if I have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?

Each therapist makes their own decision about whether to participate in EAP plans. You will have to check with the individual provider when making your appointment to find out if they will accept your EAP plan, or note that you want to use your EAP benefits on the Request an Appointment Form

After the initial session, what if I feel that the therapist is not a good fit for me?Can I change?

All of our therapists believe that the therapeutic relationship is crucial to a positive outcome in therapy. The client is always encouraged to ask for a referral if they feel unable, for any reason, to work with a particular therapist.
