The Details

Our first step is a free phone consultation to talk about your needs and to ensure that PTC is the right match for you and your family. Our goal is to get a sense of your current concerns and if the services we offer are going to be the most helpful option for you.

During that call, you’ll have an opportunity to:

  • Share about your areas of concern - Why are you reaching out?

  • Identify any goals you have in mind - Are there ways you can imagine things feeling better day-to-day?

  • Note any details about what you might be looking for in a clinician and treatment - Have you had past experiences you want to either replicate or avoid? Are there certain types of adults you’ve noticed your child gravitates to?

  • Ask questions about anything else you might want to know more about.

Once we decide to work together, we can schedule immediately. If for any reason, we’re unable to provide the support you’re looking for, we will help you find what you need.

Insurance

Insurance

I believe that my client and their caregivers should be the people making decisions about the course of mental wellness treatment. I also value my client’s right to privacy and confidentiality in our work together. Treatment should not be dictated by a managed care company, whose staff do not know you or your child.

Clients should be able to see me and decide whether or not they want a diagnosis (this is required for insurance reimbursement), how many sessions they want to utilize, (managed care companies may cut off payment for services they no longer deem necessary), and who they want to have access to their confidential therapy notes.

As an insurance-friendly practice, PTC is able to provide clients with all of the information and documentation needed to submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. All fees will be due at the time of service. For all of the details you need to contact your insurance company and find out more, check out: Out of Network Insurance Information.
