How do I know if I should seek therapy?
The decision to seek therapy is a personal one. There are a variety of options in finding solutions to life's challenges. Psychotherapy with a clinical social worker positions the client as expert, and as an individual in a social environment. Therapy can be a safe place to work through your challenges, manage your emotions, reduce any problematic symptoms, strengthen communication and build other skills.
Are you accepting new clients?
Yes. Appointments are available in the day and evening, with some weekend availability as well. Please note, there may be a wait to see a therapist. Feel free to reach out to inquire about availability. At this time, Chrisula is booked and has a wait list for new clients.
How long is a session and how often would we meet?
Sessions are typically 45 - 55 minutes in length, and typically clients come in to be seen weekly. We can always discuss if you believe you may need to be seen with more frequency. If requesting treatment using EMDR, our sessions may need to be up to 90 minutes in length.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Payment in the form of cash, check, and all major credit cards are currently accepted.
What insurance do you take?
Chrisula and Nicole are currently in network with Horizon BCBS, Cigna, Aetna, Oxford, Oscar, UMR, and United Healthcare. Kimberly is currently out of network as she is under the supervision of Chrisula. We also offer a very reasonable sliding scale fee for clients who are struggling financially but want to participate in treatment. Should you see a therapist that is out of network with a particular plan, we would be happy to check your benefits and submit claims on your behalf. **Please note: we are not in-network with Medicaid and Medicare plans, such as NJ Family Care, UHC Community Plan, etc.
Will I need to submit receipts to my insurance company?
We typically handle checking client benefits prior to scheduling an initial appointment, submit claims electronically daily, and take care of any insurance questions or need for clarification from the third-party payor. Clients rarely, if ever, need to submit invoices or "super bills" to their insurer.
