To answer some of your common questions now, sessions are generally between 45-50 minutes long. Each of our therapists and nutritionists is highly trained and loves what they do.  Everyone has a different approach to how they treat mental health issues and each person has a specialty.  You can review the bio’s for each person to get a feel for them.  You can also request a 15-minute free consultation with any of our therapists.  We do take insurance in-network and out of network.  We can provide you with documentation for your insurance company should you be interested in submitting paperwork.  Our sessions generally cost between $125-150; however we have found with insurances, the cost to you is much less.  We have therapists on staff who offer a sliding scale.  If you need an assessment for court, such as a drug and alcohol assessment or immigration assessment, they will generally cost you between $300-2500, depending on your needs.  Again, by filling out the form above, someone from our office will call you and provide you with all the information you need.
