Frequently Asked Questions

What insurances do you accept?

The Center is in network with Aetna. This means that if you have Aetna, you can use your insurance benefits to pay for the sessions. In most cases you will have a copay as well. Some of our therapists are on Cigna and BCBS, but not all. If you have out-of-network benefits, we can provide a receipt for you to submit your charges to your insurance company for reimbursement. However, we cannot guarantee reimbursement by  the insurance company.

How do I make an appointment?

Call us at 713-973-2800.  Our office manager will ask some basic questions and provide you with intake forms to complete. You’ll receive a call from the therapist to schedule your intake appointment. We ask that you complete the forms prior to your first session so that you can have the benefit of the full session time. If the forms aren’t completed prior to the sessions, your therapist will work with you to help you complete them.

Will I continue to see the therapist who I meet at the intake appointment?

Your first session is an intake session. During this session the therapist will ask questions to understand your goals and the reasons you are seeking therapy. The therapist who talks with you during your intake appointment may continue as your therapist or may choose a different therapist for you.
