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. The results are what you create in the process.
Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes. This can vary based on your needs.
This varies based on your need 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 shared 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.
Sessions start at $120/50-minute session, which is calculated based on federal reimbursement rates. For specific pricing visit here.
In order to preserve your right to confidentiality and to determine your own course of therapy, we do not directly contract with any insurance company. If you have insurance and it allows for out-of-network providers, you may be able to submit for reimbursement on your own after payment for services. This will require formulating a diagnosis, which will then be entered into 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.
