Finding a Therapist Experienced in Your Area of Concern is Important

Our therapists are caring psychologists, marriage and family counselors, drug and alcohol counselors, clinical social workers, and psychotherapists, who are highly experienced and successful in treating a variety of problems like yours. Many therapists have advanced training and supervision in areas such as relationship issues, family problems, anxiety, depression, childhood problems, substance abuse, and other difficulties. Therapy is provided in a respectful, confidential atmosphere by an independent therapist who is active, goaloriented, and non-judgmental.

Many of our therapists are in-network on insurance panels, including EAP’s, HMO’s, PPO’s, EPO’s, and POSs including Aetna™, Cigna®, Blue Cross Blue Shield®, Health Net®, Magelian®, UMR®, GHI®, Value Behavioral®, United Health Care, Oxford®, Devon®, Beacon Value, Emblem Health, AmeriHealth, QualCare, Medicare, and Beech Street®.

Fees can be adjusted with consideration for your circumstances. Call our offices so we can help match you with a therapist who fits your needs.

Some plans allow you to choose and out-of-network therapist, who can offer more confidentiality and often longer treatment.
