Intake Process

If you would like to become a new client, please call us at (617) 471-5686. One of our staff will be happy to speak to you and gather your contact information, your circumstances, and the service you are requesting. If we are unavailable when you call, leave your name and phone number, and we will return your call as soon as we are able. Typically within two weeks of when the initial intake process was completed, a therapist who is best suited for your needs and availability will call you back to arrange your first session together. If your insurance is accepted at our agency and you plan to use it with us, please be prepared with your insurance information when you call. If you have no insurance or if full payment would be a hardship, you are invited to use our sliding scale which can make our services affordable. Further information about this service will be discussed during your intake.
