The Center provides therapy on a fee for service policy. Individual treatment is currently $35 per session, and the fee for an evaluation is $150. For individuals unable to afford services, a payment plan or reduced fee schedule/scholarship may be considered.Payment for evaluations is made on the day of appointment—checks, credit cards, or money orders are accepted. If therapy or training services are recommended, a charge for each session will occur, and these payments are made prior to starting each day’s appointment. The Center does not accept insurance, and prompt payments are necessary to ensure continued services.
To Schedule an Appointment:
Please note: An evaluation completed within the last six months and recommendations for services are required prior to starting therapy.
The Center maintains a waiting list for prospective clients for evaluations and therapy sessions. To secure a slot on this list, please:
- Complete an “Intake Form,” which can be accessed via the link below (select “Child Intake Form” if completing this for an individual under the age of 18). Please answer all the questions as completely as you can; the information on this form will be confidential.
- Forms can be completed electronically and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. To complete this form by hand, select “Intake Form—Fax”, and fax the completed form to 617-373-8756.
- Once Intake Forms are received, we will begin the process of scheduling and planning an appointment for you (or your child). This may take several weeks or months, depending on the length of our waiting list and factors of University scheduling. Please be sure to email or fax any recent evaluation reports or relevant documentation to accompany the Intake Form. If there are any difficulties opening the links, please call the Center at 617-373-2492.
