How do I choose a therapist?
Therapy isn’t effective if you do not feel comfortable with your therapist. We are happy to schedule a 15 minute introductory meeting with you to allow you to ask any questions you may have.
What does therapy cost?
Our fees are on par with other psychotherapists in the greater Boston area. If you are paying out of pocket and need financial assistance, we offer a sliding scale. Please call us for more information.
Do you take my health insurance?
Check with us regarding your specific plan. We take many of the popular plans including:
– Blue Cross Blue Shield (including HMO Blue)
– United Behaviorial Health
– Harvard Pilgrim
– and many more…
We also can bill your insurance if you have “out of network” benefits. Call us for more information.
How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
While we are listening to you and learning about your circumstances to see who would be the best fit for you, it is your opportunity to evaluate your therapist and see if he or she is the right fit for you as well. We welcome your feedback as to what would be most helpful for you. Many times we hear that our clients want to leave with strategies, so people will often request a more directive approach etc.
If I come to your office for an initial consultation, what can I expect?
We are committed to finding a good fit for each client that comes to Quadra. Sometimes a client wants to have an initial consultation to see the office, meet the therapist, and ask a few questions before starting therapy. Initial Consultations last approximately 15 minutes during which the client can address their questions to the therapist regarding the therapeutic process.
How often and how long do I come to individual therapy?
The answer to this is different for each person. Most clients come weekly or every other week. It usually takes a few sessions for the therapist and client to share enough information that they can begin to start the process of change. Our therapists work collaboratively with you so that you experience growth; the removal of obstacles and the laying down of a new foundation in the areas that are important for you.
