  • Do you accept insurance?

    We are an out-of-network provider for insurance.  We provide all the information a family needs to submit claims to an insurance company for reimbursement. We also partner with two organizations to provide assistance in filing and managing insurance claims. They will also verify your benefits and manage pre-authorizations.

  • My child has already been evaluated. Do I need another evaluation?

    Yes. We will review the evaluation that your child has already received as part of our diagnostic evaluation but cannot rely on that report to determine treatment recommendations. Our clinicians need to meet with you and your child directly and make their own assessment. An accurate and thorough diagnostic evaluation is the key to recommending the most effective treatment.
  • How long will my child need treatment?

    Our clinicians are trained in evidence-based treatments, which are specialized forms of therapy that have been proven effective for children, usually over 12-16 sessions. We monitor symptoms to ensure treatment is working. Our goal is to get kids out of treatment and back to their lives.
  • What is telehealth treatment?

    Telehealth is essentially a session with a health provider that happens via technology instead of in person. In mental health treatment, that could include a diagnostic evaluation or a treatment session. Video calls are the most common medium, but telehealth sessions can also happen over the phone or via text chat. Just like in-person mental health treatment, telehealth can provide sessions for individuals, families or groups. Though the details of treatment may vary, telehealth sessions are generally available for most mental health conditions. Learn more about what telehealth looks like for kids.
