FAQ

Psychology FAQ | Center for Integrative Psychology West Bloomfield, MI - Boy_Smiling_Wide_Open_FAQWhat kind of people does the center tend to work with?

The Center for Integrative Psychology has extensive experience with children six and older, and we enjoy working with people throughout the adult lifespan. We have seen thousands of teenagers and young adults, as well as individual adults and couples. The people who come to our center tend to be bright, successful people who have areas in their life where things are not working as well as they could. They are motivated to change and have the courage to look at the patterns of their own thinking and take action to make things different in their life.

What days are available for client appointments?

We see people in our West Bloomfield office on weekdays from nine in the morning with our last appointment starting at seven in the evening. We work Tuesday through Saturday. On Saturday we see people from 9 to 4.

How often would I come in?

We usually see people once per week, sometimes more frequently if there is a crisis. As treatment progresses and we began to see good clinical change then we begin to space appointments over time to move towards ending therapy.

What is the length of treatment?

The average number of sessions is 20, although there is a very large range based on individual circumstance. We continue treatment until the individual feels comfortable that they have made the life changes necessary to function without continued therapeutic support. The brain optimization techniques tend to move things along more quickly and decrease the overall length of treatment.

How long does a session last?

  • The first psychotherapy session typically takes an hour.
  • Subsequent psychotherapy sessions are usually 45 minutes.
  • The first neurofeedback assessment takes about an hour. Subsequent LENS neurofeedback treatment sessions typically take around 15 minutes.
  • Neurofield treatment sessions last between an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half.

What are the fees?

  • Initial session $250.
  • Psychotherapy session $150.
  • LENS or Neurofield treatment sessions with Psychotherapy $200.
  • QEEG Neurofeedback Assessment $491.

Will I be reimbursed by the insurance company for supplements because they are being recommended by a mental health professional?

No. Supplements are not included in the prescription benefit by any insurance company and are always an out of pocket expense.

  • Check
  • MasterCard
  • Visa

How does this work with insurance?
 
The Center for Integrative Psychology is on panel with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO/Community Blue, Cofinity/PPOM, and Aetna.
 
We ask that you pay your deductible and co-pay at the time of service and we will electronically submit for you the claim to the insurance company for psychotherapy. Some insurance companies will pay us directly, while others will send reimbursement to you. You are responsible for knowing the details of your own mental health coverage and for payment for services not covered by the insurance company.
 
Neurofeedback is a benefit paid by BCBS PPO for children under 18 with the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD. No other  insurance company covers neurofeedback so for all others it is an out of pocket expense.
