Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What if I want to see you for psychotherapy and you don’t accept my insurance?

You can call your insurance company and ask if you have an “out-of-network” benefit for mental health services. If you do have this benefit, your insurance company will reimburse you for some, or all, of your out-of-pocket expenses that you pay to this office. We can assist this process by sending a claim directly to your insurance company on your behalf. If you do not have an out-of-network insurance benefit, we can offer services at our private pay rate. We can send you a list of rates if you complete a Contact Us request.

Will you help complete paperwork for school services like 504 or IEP requests, or other providers if I need you to?

Yes. There are some services that this office may perform which are not covered by your insurance plan. These services may include report writing, consultations with other providers, IEP meeting attendance, phone calls, etc. These fees are detailed in our intake paperwork which you will be required to sign upon initiating services. Your mental health provider will ensure that any out-of-pocket expenses are discussed prior to commencement of services.

Do you offer telehealth?

Yes, we offer both telehealth and in-person appointments. 

Do you provide medication?

Adrienne Nash, PMHNP-BC provides medication management to her clients only as an add-on to outpatient therapy. She does not prescribe for those who are not actively working with her in therapy.

What is the difference between a counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, etc?

The short answer is:

A counselor, therapist, clinician, social worker, psychotherapist, psychologist are all terms used to describe professionals that use evidence-based practices to alleviate emotional pain and suffering through psychotherapy (talk therapy). 

A psychiatrist, or psychiatric nurse practitioner, are medical professionals that can also prescribe medication to help manage symptoms.

Will you need to talk to my school, psychiatrist, PCP or others?

How many sessions will I need?
