Services are provided to individuals, couples, and groups who are experiencing a range of social/emotional stresses due to troubled personal or family experiences, depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, addiction, or low self-esteem, and under/unemployment.
Referrals come from a variety of sources including past and present clients, other therapists, churches, colleges, and professional schools, hospitals and hospices.
Fees / Insurance
In order to make counseling affordable we work on a sliding scale. The fee is determined based upon the client’s individual financial situation. The fee schedule ranges from $35-$150. The initial intake session is $60. We believe there is great value in the self-regard that comes from paying a just, fair and affordable fee for treatment. Scholarships that help subsidize payment are available on a limited basis.
Some insurance plans are accepted. Consult your own plan to see if out of network mental health coverage is provided. Some of our therapists are Medicare providers. We do not accept Medicaid.
Fees are determined in consultation with your therapist at your first visit. Payment is generally requested at the time of each session.
Confidentiality & Privacy
All treatment is held in the strictest confidence according to the law. Confidentiality and privacy practices forms are provided upon your first session. Our office is set up with individual counseling rooms and a large conference room for groups that are comfortable and quiet.
Please call 212-889-4042 to discuss the possibility of beginning treatment. A brief phone interview is our first step to determine if our services can meet your individual needs. Once you have completed the phone intake, it generally takes approximately one week to schedule an initial meeting with a therapist. Because of the high value we place on personal connection, we do not accept e-mail requests for initial treatment interviews. If this is an emergency, please be advised to call 911 or to go to your nearest emergency room.
