During the mandatory intake session, you will meet with your therapist to discuss current concerns and treatment goals. You will also have the opportunity to learn how therapy works and ask questions. Appropriate next steps will be discussed at the conclusion of the intake session.
This session is typically requested to be scheduled on the same day of your initial contact with us, often due to a perceived crisis situation. Similar to the intake session described above, you will meet with your therapist to discuss current concerns and treatment goals. Depending on the nature of your concerns, your therapist may also coordinate with other mental health providers, such as psychiatrists and hospital staff.

Couple and family sessions are typically scheduled for a 90-minute session depending on your specific needs. Extended sessions are charged in 15-minute increments.

To maintain high quality, responsive services that maximize your privacy, UPC does not participate as an in-network provider with any insurance plans. However, many insurance plans provide reimbursement for out-of-network mental health services. UPC will provide a receipt for services, referred to as a “superbill,” that includes information needed to file for reimbursement with your insurance provider. You may want to consult with your insurance provider as to whether or not your plan provides out-of-network mental health benefits.
You are responsible for paying at the time of your session unless prior arrangements have been made. No subsequent sessions will be scheduled if there is an outstanding balance. We accept many major forms of payment, including credit cards, debit cards, cashier’s checks, money orders, and cash. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS. Please be aware we charge a $45.00 credit card decline fee if your credit card is declined for any reason. Payment policy will be provided to client and/or client's guardian prior to first appointment
Once an appointment is scheduled, that time is reserved only for you. If you are unable to attend a session, contact your therapist at least 24-hours in advance and there will be no charge. For sessions missed or cancelled with less than 24-hours notice, the regular fee will apply.
