What is the initial process for couple or marriage counseling?
Typically, the first session is joint. Then we meet with each of you individually to get each person’s perspective on the problems and learn about you. We will then meet together again, at which point we will share with you our impressions. We will decide together whether we are a good match and what the goals of treatment would be.
What are your fees?
Our fees depend on the length of the session and services provided. We offer sliding scale fees for people with financial constraints and please feel free to ask about this.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We currently accept checks, cash, Visa and MasterCard.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance. If you are interested in obtaining reimbursement through your insurance carrier, we will provide you with the appropriate receipt on a monthly basis.
What are the benefits of videotaping?
Occasionally, one of our therapists may ask if you are interested in having your sessions videotaped. Videotaping is a useful tool to allow the therapist to review the session afterwards, to identify patterns not obvious during the session, and to improve his or her own clinical skills. Of course, this is completely voluntary, and there will be no difference in treatment if you do not wish to be recorded at any time.
Videotaping will never be conducted without you having read and signed a consent form first. The consent form explains the extensive steps taken to protect your confidentiality at all times. Video is only ever stored on physical computer and video equipment located in the offices of CPID. Video is never distributed by email or backed up to external sources such as cloud storage or internet-based offsite backup.
