If you are interested in obtaining an evaluation the first step is to contact us by phone or email.
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-606-2663. If we are not able to answer the phone please leave your name, phone number and the best time to reach you, and we will call you back. The initial phone conversation will take a few minutes. We can answer any questions you may have, and we might ask you:
- What kind of care are you looking for (psychotherapy for an adult or child, medication management, integrative medicine care, biofeedback, second opinion, etc.)?
- Are you currently on medications?
- Do you prefer our Brooklyn or Manhattan location?
- Do you have health insurance and do you have out-of-network benefits for mental health through your insurance? (for more information, see Insurance)
You are invited to fill out the Initial Evaluation Patient Information forms prior to your initial interview. You can request these forms by email or mail when you schedule your initial appointment. Filling out the forms prior to your initial appointment can facilitate the initial interview, yet it is completely optional.
You have the right to privacy. All your personal information and records are kept confidential. We are committed to protecting your privacy and will not release your information without prior written consent. The only situation where we may be required to compromise your confidentiality is in the case of emergency, a situation of imminent danger to your life or the life of another person.
Adult Initial Evaluation
In the initial appointment we will talk about your current concerns and key background information. Please bring any prior records you would like to share, a list of prescription and over the counter medications, and the intake forms.
Adolescent Initial Evaluation
In the initial appointment, we will meet with the teen alone for part of the time and with the parents alone for part of the time.
Please bring any prior records of any psychological testing or prior evaluations, a list of prescription and over the counter medications, and the intake forms if you filled them out before the appointment, and the names of your pediatrician and any other health care providers.
Child Initial Evaluation
The initial appointment is with parents only and the second visit is with your child. Please bring any prior records of any psychological testing or prior evaluations, and the intake forms, and a toy for your child. The third appointment is an opportunity for feedback and treatment planning with the parents only.
Thank you for your interest.
