If you are interested in counseling services, the first step is to contact our Intake Specialist, Rebecca Wood, at 215-563-0663 ext. 248 to schedule an intake appointment, which will take approximately one hour.
If you are insured, please bring your insurance card with you when you come in for your intake appointment. If you are not insured and you’d like to apply for a reduced sliding scale fee, please bring the following documents, as applicable: proof of income, last tax return, pay stub, bank statement. (If you have any questions about the process, please don’t hesitate to call Rebecca).
We believe therapy should be an affordable option for everyone. Most commercial insurance is accepted. However, as insurance plans vary greatly, we will look into your benefit allowances. A sliding scale is available for clients without insurance coverage. We also participate in the PA Medicaid program (CBH). You may qualify for funding available through our community partnerships. Our behavioral health registrar, Hannah Dolinger, can answer any questions about these options. Hannah can also assist with appointment check-ins and scheduling follow-up appointments. Hannah can be reached at: email@example.com or by phone at 215-563-0663 ext. 511.
Note: If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, the Philadelphia-area crisis hotline number is 215-686-4420, and they are on the line 24/7. (If you are out of the area, the National Crisis Hotline is 1-800-273-8255).
