Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the sessions?

Sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes and last between 53 and 59 minutes.

What should I expect at my first session?

The first session is focused on making sure each client understands their rights and responsibilities and setting expectations for working together. The remaining time is spent starting on the initial diagnostic assessment and settling on the client’s desired treatment goals.

What documents do I need to bring?

Our system will offer new clients the opportunity to complete their intake forms and upload photos of necessary documents prior to their first session. For clients who prefer to do that in person, a government-issued photo ID and HUSKY card are required at intake.

What types of trauma can you help?

According to the American Psychological Association, trauma is “an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, crime, natural disaster, physical or emotional abuse, neglect, experiencing or witnessing violence, death of a loved one, war, and more. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.” Our team members are trained to support clients who have experienced any of those examples of trauma, as well as others not listed, including domestic violence. Specifically, every member of our team is a Certified Sexual Violence Crisis Counselor and Advocate in the State of Connecticut and is specially trained to support victims and survivors of sexual violence.

How does HUSKY insurance work at the clinic?

Adult prospective clients who have HUSKY insurance will have their coverage verified by our team before the first session wherever possible, and otherwise before a second session. For clients whose coverage is confirmed, no further action is required on the part of the client. Our team will take care of all billing and reimbursement matters. 

It is important to note that HUSKY prohibits providers from charging any fee directly to the client, including for no-shows and late cancellations. As such, it is important for our clients to know that attendance to scheduled sessions is very important, and that a pattern of missed sessions can result in termination of services. Those policies are outlined in the documents provided to the client at intake.
