COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT THERAPY

Sarah perl, Daring Way, therapist Tribeca Brooklyn Heights

I’M HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTION YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THIS PROCESS

One of the greatest indicators of success in therapy is the relationship that you have with your therapist.   While theoretical orientation, post graduate training, niche, and years in practice are important, it often comes down to “the goodness of fit” between a therapist and a client that is the most essential component to healing.  Given this, it can be beneficial to have consultations with a few clinicians initially, which can help with gaining clarity about who you’re most comfortable with.
When you initially reach out, you will nearly always hear from me within one business day, often sooner.
Office hours are by appointment.  I am in my Tribeca office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and am in my Brooklyn Heights office on Wednesdays.  Please call 518.894.8512 to schedule an appointment. 
At a minimum, sessions are once per week.  It can also be beneficial to meet twice per week as this creates increased continuity and momentum of your work.  I typically do not work on an every other week frequency.
An initial consultation is 1 hour and ongoing individual therapy sessions are 50 minutes.
The length of time that someone stays in treatment is unique and depends on factors such as what’s bringing you in as well as what your personal goals are.  I believe that the decision to end treatment can be made collaboratively between you and I, however ultimately the choice to stop is yours.
Mostly, yes!  I like to be very transparent about the instances in which I am required by law to break confidentiality. If you are at serious risk of harming yourself or someone else or if there is suspected abuse or neglect, I am not able to keep that a secret.   If you would like for me to collaborate with another medical professional or another person, I have a Release of Information form for you to sign that grants permission to share information dictated by you.

PAYMENT INFORMATION

Cash, check or all major credit cards as well as health spending account (HSA) and flexible spending account (FSA) cards.  Payment is collected weekly at the end of each session.
I am not an in network provider on any health insurance panels at this time.  If you have out of network benefits, I am able to help you in deciding if using out of network benefits is a good option for you. I provide the documentation necessary to submit claims for payment reimbursement.

To determine if you have mental health coverage, the first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier.

Check your coverage carefully by finding the answers to the following questions:

  • Does my plan cover services for out-of-network mental health providers?
  • What is the deductible I have to meet before reimbursement can occur?
  • What percentage of treatment do I pay when seeing an out-of-network mental health provider?
  • Is there a maximum amount of sessions that are able to be reimbursed per year?
  • Is it the calendar year that is used to de-mark coverage periods or another time specifier?
  • Which form do I use to submit a claim and where can that form be found? Is it the CMS-1500 form?
  • What address do I send claim submissions to?
  • Is pre-approval required from my primary care physician before receiving services?
When you use your out of network benefits for therapy with me, you pay for sessions along the way and then submit claims at the end of each month, requesting reimbursement.  I provide monthly invoices with the information needed to submit your claim along with the necessary form.  If you are unfamiliar with this process, I would be happy to orient you further and/or answer any questions you may have.  In the unlikely event that your insurance company denies your claim, you are responsible for the cost of the sessions that have occurred to date.
