FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long would I need to attend therapy? That really depends on you. Some concerns can be addressed in just a few sessions, while others may take longer. You are always involved in your treatment, so we can work together on your treatment plan to fit your schedule.
Do you take insurance? I do take CareFirst (Blue Cross), Magellan and PHCS/Multiplan. I would be glad to discuss options and/or contact your insurance provider in order to find a solution that works for you.
