What conditions or problems do you treat?
We specialize in the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related conditions, Anxiety Disorders (including Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Phobias), Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors (including Trichotillomania and Skin Picking Disorder), Tourette's and Tic Disorders and childhood behavioral difficulties.
Do you prescribe medication?
While we do not prescribe medication, we refer to and collaborate with local psychiatrists and other prescribers when medication is indicated.
Do you accept insurance?
Weden, Weintraub & Associates is considered an Out of Network provider, which means that we do not have any formal agreements with insurance companies regarding the provision of services to their members.
While we do not accept insurance, many clients find that a portion of their session fees are reimbursed by their insurance company, depending on out-of-network coverage. We encourage you to contact your insurance company to inquire about mental health coverage and out-of-network benefits for your specific insurance plan.
We provide our clients with the necessary information (superbill/invoice) that they can submit to their insurance company should they wish to seek reimbursement.
How long will it take?
Behavioral therapy is considered relatively short term therapy, meaning that a goal of treatment is to have a client only in therapy as long as needed for significant behavioral change, as opposed to a long term model. While the average length of treatment for most conditions with which we work is 6 months, treatment may require less or more time depending on the problem severity, complexity and adherence and commitment to the treatment process.
If you or your child are receiving a comprehensive assessment, then you should expect to receive the final report within 4-6 weeks.
I want to get the most benefit out of therapy. What can I do to help?
We are so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your (or your child's) success, as commitment to the treatment process is more predictive of success in therapy than one's symptom severity.
