Before Your First Appointment...
- If you have insurance, call your insurance company to verify your benefits.
- Click the button below to get the intake form and the credit card authorization form. If you are using an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), you do not need to complete the credit card authorization form.
Your First AppointmentA lot of people are nervous before their first session. Please share with your therapist what does or doesn't work for you. This is not just your initial assessment. This is the time when you assess what your therapist can offer you. Remember, you're the most important person in your session!
For information on Cedar Tree's privacy practices, please read:
Your appointment is confirmed at the time of scheduling. We make every attempt to send you appointment reminders via text if you have consented on your intake form to receive text messages from us. Please be advised that text messages are not necessarily a confidential form of communication, so we will not communicate with you for any other purpose than reminders. Not receiving a text message is not an indication that your appointment is cancelled, so please come to your appointment regardless of whether you receive a reminder. In case of a missed appointment, please see our missed appointment policy below.
Payments and Insurance
Unless other arrangements have been made in advance, your payment or copay is due at the time of the session – major credit cards, checks, and cash are accepted. We accept most major insurances for both behavioral/mental health services and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). Please remember that not all therapists accept all insurances and that fees vary by therapist and type of session. You can ask about it when making your initial call to us, or you can check with your insurance company. Please remember it is the responsibility of the client to verify their benefits prior to obtaining services.
For your convenience, we will file with up to two insurance companies on your behalf.
For private pay clients as well as for copays/deductibles, we accept cash, checks, money orders, all major credit cards, and Apple Pay. There is a $20 fee for checks returned for insufficient funds.
Sorry, we do not accept Medicare or Medicaid insurance.
Accounts more than 60 days overdue will be referred to a collection agency. In such cases, the collection agency will have personal identifiable information for you, such as name, address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security Number, dates of services, and amounts due. They will not have access to your clinical records.
