What happens after the initial referral?


Our intake process starts with a short questionnaire to identify each client’s unique needs and preferences so we can best match them with the right provider. If needed, a Care Navigator will follow up with a live consultation call.

Our Client Experience team will reach out to the patient on the same day their referral was received to answer questions and start their onboarding process.

What is the typical time to care for referred patients?


Time from referral to first visit depends on the client’s needs, but typically we’re able to get a new client into care within 10 business days.

If my patient doesn't have insurance coverage, what is the cost for care?


Individual and relationship therapy in California starts at $205 per session.

Individual and relationship therapy in New York starts at $180 per session.
