Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Your Areas of Expertise?

Our clinicians have expertise in a variety of forms of psychotherapy as well as other useful approaches including mindfulness meditation, Lifestyle Medicine, and Psychopharmacology (medication) if indicated. Some of the specific psychotherapy techniques in which our clinicians are trained include Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Group Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Supportive Psychotherapy.

Every treatment is highly individualized for each client. As we offer both skillful prescribers and psychotherapists, we are able to treat those considering therapy, medication, or both. This facilitates coordination between your clinicians, as well as the opportunity for consultation with an interdisciplinary team with expertise in areas such as couples and family therapy, group therapy, and lifestyle medicine.

We treat a wide range of life issues, psychological symptoms, and psychiatric diagnoses, including anxiety, depression, issues with attention and procrastination, stress management, relationship difficulties, challenging life transitions, problem solving, and career and professional counseling, amongst others. We treat children ages 6 years and older for medication, 12 years and older for psychotherapy, and adults of all ages.

Do You Accept Insurance?

We do not participate directly with insurance. However, we do offer an invoice for out of network benefits, which typically reimburse anywhere from 50-100% after meeting a certain deductible.

Since every insurance plan is different, you may want to call your insurance company directly to ask how much you will be reimbursed for your visit. Below is a guide for the questions to ask your insurance company for the most accurate information:

  1. Does my plan include out of network benefits?
  2. What is my deductible, if any?  (A deductible is the amount of money you will need to pay before your insurance company will provide you with reimbursement for our services.)
  3. Depending on the services provided, you can expect to be reimbursed different amounts. Insurance companies use codes to reference specific types of service. Here are the codes we use on your out of network receipts. Depending on the service and the credentials of your clinician, you will be eligible for a different level of reimbursement.

Where Are Your Clinicians Licensed?

The majority of our clinicians are licensed in NY and NJ. In addition to these, individual clinicians are licensed in states such as CT, NC, CA, and FL. When you inquire, please ask us if we can accommodate your state of residency.

What Can I Expect From My First Appointment?

Prior to your first appointment, our Clinical Coordinator, Alli Malamut, will talk with you to gain a basic understanding of your current needs and goals. Her goal is to select a therapist for you that matches your psychological and/or psychiatric needs, preferred style and temperament.

At your first visit, you will be asked about the nature of the current difficulties as well as your personal, family, and medical history. We will make every effort to understand what you are feeling, and identify what you value most, and what is getting in the way of your progress and life satisfaction.

We are interested in learning about your goals and hopes for therapy, and you will have time to ask any questions you may have. Towards the end of the appointment, you and your therapist will formulate a plan for future treatment, and you will have a chance to collaborate to ensure your treatment is headed in a direction that feels appropriate, convenient, and workable with your life circumstances.

How Often Will I Need To See My Therapist?

This will depend on your preference and your therapist’s recommendation, as well as scheduling and availability. Talk therapy sessions are 45 minutes and, at least initially, are typically once a week. Medication therapy usually lasts 30 minutes. Depending on how stable your regimen and dose are, followup can be once a month to once every three months.

The length of your treatment will be up to you, based on your issues and goals. In order to ensure that your treatment remains productive, from time to time you and your therapist will check in with each other in order to make sure that treatment remains focused on your goals and continues to help you move forward.

When Are Your Prescribers Available?

Our therapists and prescribers have availability for both in person and virtual visits. Availability varies, depending on the therapist, but we do our best to accommodate you expeditiously within the same week of your request. Our therapists see patients Monday-Sunday with daytime and evening hours, depending on the therapist.

Are There Issues You Don't Treat?

At TMP we do not offer emergency treatment. If you need immediate care, you might consider accessing an emergency room or other crisis center.

While our clinicians have expertise in working with individuals on a wide range of issues including difficulties with substance use, we don’t provide specialized treatment focused on alcohol or drug addiction.
