Should I come even if my spouse will not for counseling?
Yes. If you or your relationship is suffering, seek help now. Even as you begin a spouse will often join the process, especially as they begin to see you change. Sometimes people are afraid to come into therapy, they can draw on the strength of your initiating the process to overcome their hesitation to seek help.
What insurances do you accept?
Each therapist may be affiliated with different insurance companies. Members of our staff are contracted with the following major insurance companies: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Harvard Pilgrim, United Behavioral Health, Value Options. We can often work with your EAP plan, but prearrangements are usually necessary. Most HMO plans require preauthorization of services. We recommend that you contact your insurance company (usually an 800 number on the back of your card for Mental Health) and verify your benefits and ask if there is a co-pay or deductible
How confidential is this?
The Health Privacy Act (HIPPA) requires that we cannot disclose any information without your written permission unless there is a life threatening situation. As all of our therapists are licensed, we are mandated reporters and required by law to report life threatening situations and cases of child abuse.
