honoring and healing the biopsychosocialspiritualenvironmental wholeness that is You!
New Mexico only. Licensed Psychologist Associate – supervised practice
Therapy really doesn’t “work.” It’s a collaborative journey that we take together and I share with you what I have learned that helps people in your situation. You choose how and if you would like to use it. The results are what you create in the process.
Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes.
This varies based on your needs and preference. Typically we start weekly for a few weeks at least, and then modify this with appointments scheduled at an interval that works best for you.
All information is HIPAA-protected and thus confidential in accordance with State and Federal laws, whichever is most restrictive. There are some legal exceptions to this, which are disclosed in our Consent to Virtual Psychotherapy form. While you must sign this to proceed with your first session, we are happy to provide for review at any time.
Please see important related information under Do you take insurance to the right.
Sessions are offered at $120/50-minute session. For specific pricing visit here.
See insurance information, below.
We currently accept Medicaid and Medicare as payment in full, plus applicable co-pays if any.
You may submit for reimbursement after full payment has been made if you have another policy that allows for out of network providers.
Finally, you may also be able to use your Medical/Health Spending Account after full payment has been rendered.
Please keep in mind that if you choose to use insurance or another third party payor, we can no longer guarantee confidentiality as we have no control over the databases and other computer systems that your insurance may use. Utilizing an insurance company will also will require formulating a diagnosis, which will then become part of your insurance record.
This comes down to the relationship. There is never a committment to continue after we meet, even if you have prepaid a package. Full refund will be made for any unused sessions. Generally speaking, give it two sessions to decide; but, if even after the first session something feels “off,” listen to your gut and decide accordingly.
By the same token Dr Mark will be honest as well; If for any reason he feels that you would be better served elsewhere he will discuss this with you.
Like all other variables, this is ultimately up to you. Dr Mark will make individualized recommendations as you go, but you will make all final decisions.
All sessions are virtual via Webex HIPAA-secure video platform. This platform has video and phone-in options. Video is preferred and used most often.
We are physically located in Santa Fe, NM and therapy services can only be offered to individuals who are in New Mexico at the time services are rendered due to licensing constraints.
