Frequently Asked Questions

What's On Your Mind?

If you don't find the answer here, please reach out to us through the contact form.

Do you offer face to face sessions in an office?
No, this practice is entirely teletherapy-based and all sessions are conducted via a secure platform. We believe that teletherapy provides unique advantages for the type of treatments we provide. We are experts in teletherapy and have been teletherapy-based for several years.
How do I know if you are licensed in my area?
We have clinicians permanently licensed in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Massachusetts, New Jersey, & Tennessee. We will be adding more states in 2021. Additionally, we are able to see patients in various countries around the world depending on licensing laws within the country. Feel free to reach out and we can check on the specifics of your country. We currently offer services in English only, but are able to coordinate with qualified interpreters for an additional fee.
I don't see my state or country listed. Can you still provide treatment?
No. Due to strict licensing laws in the United States, a therapist can only provide treatment in states where they hold a license. We are strong advocates for policy change in this area. For now, please look into our other, more flexible, options such as groups and CBIT School. If you are located outside of the United States, feel free to reach out and we are happy to look into the licensing requirements of your country/region.
Do you accept insurance?
Like most specialists, we do not accept any forms of insurance due to its limitations on the unique treatments offered. However, we support patients through the single case agreement process. A typical single case agree with your insurance can reimburse you 50-100% of your fees depending on the quality of your policy. You will receive a detailed guide to this process within your initial paperwork. All fees are due at the time of service.
How do I get on the waitlist?
After looking over the website, confirming a therapist is licensed in your state, and that we meet your needs, you are welcome to send the patient's first & last name, date of birth, and email address through the contact form. From there, you will receive access to the patient portal where you can complete the necessary paperwork to be added to the waitlist. A 15-minute phone consultation is also offered at no cost and information can be gathered there as well.
I'm interested in treatment for my child. Do I need to participate?
Yes! Parent participation is essential. In most cases, for children under the age of 18, a parent-only evaluation is the first step of treatment. Depending on the age of the child (especially teens), it may be beneficial to have the parent join at the beginning and end of the session. We will make these decisions as treatment progresses.
Will you support me between sessions?
Please avoid the use of email for clinical questions or concerns. Should you have a brief clinical question between sessions, please utilize the chat feature of Vsee. 1-2 brief emails per week are welcomed. If more time is needed a phone call or treatment session may be scheduled and charged accordingly. This is not an on-call practice and if you experience a mental health emergency, you are encouraged to first reach out to the crisis hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
What is parent training?
Parent Training is appropriate for parents of children are not yet old enough to benefit from individual treatment or are invested in the process. Parent Training is especially beneficial for parents of children with OCD and Tourette. Parent Training is already an essential part of treatment, but can be used as a stand-alone option in the aforementioned situations.
How long will treatment last?
The length of treatment is unique for each patient and their individual needs. However, the treatments we provide generally last months, not years, with some learning life changing skills in as little as 10-12 weeks.
What role does medication play in treatment?
Although we do not prescribed medication, we understand that many benefit from a combination of therapy and medication, than either alone. If you are already working with a psychiatrist, we will gladly coordinate care. We also have relationships with many outstanding adult and child/adolescent psychiatrists in various states and can make referrals when appropriate.
