It is our intention to provide services that will assist you in reaching your goals. Based upon the information that you provide and the specifics of your situation, we will provide recommendations to you regarding your treatment. We believe that therapists and clients are partners in the therapeutic process. You have the right to agree or disagree with our recommendations. We will also periodically provide feedback to you regarding your progress and will invite your participation in the discussion. Due to the varying nature and severity of problems and the individuality of each client, we are unable to predict the length of your therapy or to guarantee a specific outcome or result.
The length of your treatment
The length of your treatment and the timing of the eventual termination of your treatment depend on the specifics of your treatment plan and the progress you achieve. It is a good idea to plan for your termination, in collaboration with your therapist. We will discuss a plan for termination with you as you approach the completion of your treatment goals. You may discontinue therapy at any time. If you or your therapist determines that you are not benefiting from treatment, either of us may elect to initiate a discussion of your treatment alternatives. Treatment alternatives may include, among other possibilities, referral, changing your treatment plan, or terminating your therapy.
Insurance is not accepted in lieu of payment for services. However, upon request, you will be provided with a CMS 1500-Health Insurance Claim Form to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Your reimbursement amount will depend on the type of coverage you carry.
