additional information

We want to ensure all of our clients’ needs are met when they come in for their appointments, in between appointments, and upon completion of their therapy. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about usage of your insurance. We will also provide you with resources, both logistical and reading/listening materials, as needed or requested. Some of our clients have more logistical and resource-based questions about care management needs, we are happy to assist with those needs as well. All of our therapists are trained in case management and have worked in community and hospital-based settings. Please let your therapist know how we can best support you.
