What to Expect:
The first step is to reach out to us, to schedule a free consultation call. This is about 15 minutes where you and your potential therapist will get to know each other. This process helps you and your potential therapist preliminarily assess your needs and assess if it is a good therapeutic fit.
After the consultation call, you and your therapist will schedule an initial assessment, which takes anywhere between 75-90 minutes. The therapist will complete a biopsychosocial assessment with you. There will be questions about your identity, family, general mental health, eating disorder symptoms/behaviors (if applicable), and more. After gathering all of this information, the therapist will be able to come up with a preliminary treatment plan and provide recommendations for your care that the therapist deems ethically and clinically appropriate. If our client is a child or adolescent we typically do an initial assessment with the parent/caregiver as well.
Once these two steps are complete, therapy sessions begin! Therapy sessions are about 50 minutes. However, you and your therapist may decide to meet for a shorter or longer session time.

Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill.
