Who do you treat?
We have a commitment to inclusiveness and welcome clients from all walks of life. We have therapists who specialize in working with children, adolescents/teens through adulthood. We also have therapists trained to work with couples and families.
What are the COVID Guidelines at Peace of Mind Therapy?
Our office staff is taking calls and responding to emails and intake questionnaires Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00am-4:00pm. Our physical office is open as well, though not all of our therapists are seeing clients in person at this time. Please check with your therapist prior to coming to our office. We also have safety guidelines we require you to review and sign prior to visiting our office. View them here.
When do I need to submit my intake paperwork?
Your electronic forms will be emailed to you and will expire within three days of delivery. Without receipt of completion, we cannot schedule you. Once we receive your completed forms (within 3 days), we ask that you be available by phone or email to discuss scheduling. Due to the volume of intake requests we receive daily, submission of paperwork alone does not guarantee you a session at Peace of Mind Therapy. We appreciate your willingness to be promptly available to discuss scheduling after we receive your submitted paperwork, as our clinician calendars and their availability are changing daily.
What insurance do you take?
We are currently an in-network provider for the following insurance plans: Quartz, GHC, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, The Alliance Network and Beacon Health. For individuals without insurance or with carriers not listed, contact us to discuss available payment options.
What kind of issues to you treat?
The clinicians at Peace of Mind Therapy are generalists and are therefore trained to work with a wide variety of client concerns. View a list of some the common concerns we work with and the techniques we use.
What should I expect in the first few sessions?
As we journey through therapy, we’ll offer you tools and skills that we’ve found helpful and you can use in life. As we progress, you’ll begin to see changes in your relationships, outlook on life and the feelings you’re experiencing. No two experiences are alike, but we’re excited to partner with you as you process the challenges you’ve experienced.
My child has a therapy appointment via Telehealth. How does that work?
If you have scheduled your child for a Telehealth appointment, we ask that you, the parent/caregiver be physically present and available during your child’s scheduled session. Our therapists would like you to check in at the start of the appointment to make sure your child’s session is setup properly (confidential space, good internet connection, visibility of the therapist, materials for therapy if engaging in art or play therapy, etc). Your involvement and participation in your child’s therapy is vital to the success of your child’s treatment.
What is the cost?
If you chose not to use insurance or are unable to use insurance, we bill at an hourly fee. We do collect out-of-pocket payments after each session rather than billing our clients.
What is your cancelation policy?
We require 48 hours advance notice for any cancellations. For our Monday appointments, we require notice on Thursday during our business hours to cancel. After hours Friday or over the weekend will be considered a late cancellation unless your appointment is Wednesday the following week. We prioritize that hour for you and we need time to adjust to fill our session slots if you cannot make it. All late cancellations will be charged a fee of $120.
What does an Substance Use Assessment entail?
It involves a one-time, hour long interview where the individual is asked to disclose their substance use history to discern a diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Upon completion of the assessment, the individual will be given treatment recommendations and treatment referral options. Collateral information may need to be obtained, which would require the individual to provide consent for the assessor to contact others that can verify the information discussed in the assessment.
Is a Substance Use Assessment covered by insurance? If not, what is the cost?
At this time, substance use assessments are an out of pocket cost of $450. This amount is for a two-hour session with a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. If the assessment requires additional time, there is a cost of $60 per half hour beyond the two-hour assessment.
Who we Serve
While we primarily see individuals (kids, teens, and adults), we also serve couples and families. No matter who we see — we look at you as a whole person, not a broken one. We are all doing the best we can amidst our challenging circumstances. Sometimes we just need extra support and a safe space to process our experiences.
