Thank you very much for your time & consideration.

This is our most rapid method of communication to help serve you as quickly as possible.
This will help us reach you at convenient times for you.
Kindly please briefly describe any situations/mental health concerns involved and if you are seeking individual, couples and/or family therapy.
Our therapists see clients of various age ranges - this only helps with identifying maximum options for you. For family/couples counseling, you can indicate N/A.


Note: Licensed Residents in Counseling (post Masters degree) & Interns in Counseling (Masters students) are under supervision
*SPECIAL NOTE on RESIDENTS*: Residents are in network with 3 Medicaid plans: Anthem HK+, Optima Fam. Care & Optum/UBH Comm. Plan; processing in all other Medicaid plans. If not on these, residents can be seen for a co-pay equivalent fee or, if you have no copay or no insurance, for a negotiable sliding fee.


If not applicable, please indicate N/A. Provider name, plan & co-pay information helps us identify placement options we would have to serve you.
