Please reach us at if you cannot find an answer to your question.
We are typically full, however, when someone has graduated from our program, we will open our schedule and reach out to individuals who have submitted an online form. We will contact you when we have an opening, and at that time we will explain the details of our program, review costs, and you can determine if you feel this is a good fit for you. We encourage you to continue seeking support, if we do not have availability. Openings occur every few weeks. Dr. Cordier in particular, has limited openings and limited availability.
The program is "pay as you go." We have a monthly program fee of $75 plus the copay or out-of-pocket cost of your individual, group or parent empowerment training if you are using insurance. The fee does not apply for out of network payments.
No. We do not offer specialized testing evaluations. We use biopsychosocial evaluation as part of the treatment program.
No. The cost of the treatment workbook is included in the session fees. The workbook serves as your guide through the therapy, as well as it provides examples and practice activities to practice skills.
No. However, the more you practice the better you get. We make recommendations, but ultimately, it's up to you. We will always practice and work in session, but the outside work can be very beneficial - :15 - :20 minutes or so, per week.
There are times when Parent Empowerment Training is not entirely necessary. However, depending on the child/teen's issues or age, combined with the counselor's recommended treatment plan.
We accept Anthem, Cigna, and Medicaid insurance.
The cost per session is $125.00 for Dr. Cordier, $95 for all other counselors - sliding scale with active insurance company. There is also a monthly program fee of $75.
If you have out-of-network benefits you may be able to be reimbursed by your insurance company for all or some of the cost. Upon request, we can provide you with a monthly statement reflecting your payments so you may submit it to your insurance company. You will not be required to pay the program fee because the fee is built into the cost of your session fee.
We do not verify benefits. Please be sure that you understand your insurance coverage, what your copay is or if you have a deductible.
It is the patient's responsibility to know their own coverage. Copays for service are typically the cost of your copay for regular doctor visits. We do not guarantee coverage, as it is always determined by your individual insurance company. Payment is due at the time of service. We will charge any back balance in full, unless a payment arrangement is made.
No. The program fee is not a billable service.
No. You may drop out of the program at any time for any reason. You are not responsible for any further payments so long as you have contacted the office to request to be taken off of the schedule. If we are not notified within 24 hours of your next session or you miss your scheduled appointments no show/ no call fees will be applied. It is important that you communicate with the office in order to avoid additional fees.
yes, regardless of reason. If you are 15 minutes late to a session, it is considered a late cancellation. No Call or No Show is missing a scheduled appointment. The fee for both is $95 per individual session scheduled, $50 for scheduled group.
The program works at the pace of the individual that is being treated. The program is structured with specific skills and the patient's application of the skills as they work through their individual issues. We also offer maintenace program.
This is a structured skill-based (psychoeducational) approach to therapy that combines elements of talk therapy. Trust and rapport are key to any good therapy and treatment outcomes. Talking and discussing events in a person's life is still an essential part of the treatment process.
Dr. Cordier visits are online. If you are to visit with him, you must work in a quiet isolated place and have access to a computer. You have the option online or in person with other providers based on provider availability. All children must be seen in person.
