I had never been to therapy before. Dr. Fidler and his staff really made me feel at ease. I had a lot to deal with being in the military and having to talk about hard things from being deployed. I'm feeling better. I highly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions (7)

1 Do you accept insurance?

Yes, we accept many insurance and employee assistance (EAP) plans. You may call our office to inquire about whether or not we accept your insurance.

 

2 Are Psychological Testing and Evaluations covered by insurance?

Psychological testing and evaluations are minimally covered by insurance on a very limited basis, and often require preauthorization. There are several exclusionary diagnoses for coverage such as ADHD, Autism, or learning problems. Further, insurance companies require a diagnosis for the evaluation to be deemed “medically necessary.” Because insurance companies pay very little for evaluations, we do not accept insurance for evaluations.  Forensic evaluations are not covered by insurance.

 

3 How long will I be in therapy?

This is a very common question, but one that is not easily answered. Because everyone’s needs and problems are unique and varied, it is difficult to assess how long one will need therapy. It usually takes 4-6 sessions in order for your provider to affectively assess your situation. It is recommended that sessions be on a weekly basis. It is not uncommon for psychotherapy to last for one year or more, but this depends on the problems being addressed and the diagnosis being treated.

 

4 Why / how is therapy helpful?

Therapy can help individuals to overcome challenges, experience emotional growth, and feel more confident. Our goal is to help patients use existing strengths and resources to more effectively overcome stressors. We achieve this goal by teaching clients new ways of coping with or solving problems and by helping clients gain new perspectives or ways of understanding situations. Therapy should help clients feel more equipped and confident about life’s challenges. For some, therapy can target specific issues or problems, such as depression, anxiety, or trauma. For others, therapy can be seen as a way of better managing life, or a way to optimize satisfaction and achieve greater levels of happiness. Thus, therapy can be beneficial to a range of individuals.

 

5 What if I need medication, can you prescribe this for me?

Our practice focuses on the use of psychotherapeutic techniques that have been shown to be effective in treating many disorders effectively without the use of medication. However, there are times when psychotherapy is not enough and medication would be in your benefit. If this is the case, your provider will discuss these options with you and make some recommendations. In many cases your primary care physician can handle your need for psychotropic medications. However, some medications require more specialized training and monitoring; thus, a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner would be recommended to you and we would offer a referral for you.

 

6 What if I am not comfortable with my provider?

In order for therapy to be effective, it is very important that you feel comfortable and confident with your provider. It is important that a therapeutic alliance is formed between the patient and provider, as this is where the work and change takes place. As professionals, we make efforts to ensure you are getting the best treatment possible. Please discuss any problems or discomfort you are having with your therapist, and if needed, our clinical director.  We will see about placing you with another provider within our office, or offer you recommendations for other providers in the community.

 

7 Is what I discuss in therapy kept confidential?

Absolutely. Confidentiality is something that we as providers hold as our highest priority. Information you provide in therapy will be kept in your file, and will only be divulged or released upon your written authorization. However, you must know that there are some exceptions to confidentiality. These exceptions include: Danger to self or others; any reporting or disclosing of physical or sexual abuse against a child; or abuse against a dependent or helpless adult. Also, upon receipt of a Court Order, we are mandated to release records even without your written authorization.
