Frequently Asked Questions
Does Fircrest Behavioral Health accept insurance?
Yes, for counseling services.
What should I expect for the first session?
The first session involves a continuance performance test (which measures sustained attention and response time), full medical history, and a communication of what the client would like to work on through the sessions. The goal of this session is to set the groundwork for future sessions and give the technician information in order to develop an accurate and personalized protocol for each client.
Before the first session, the client will receive intake paperwork including: limits of confidentiality, informed consent to treat, personal disclosure statement, and the office policies. The counselor will then read through the intake so they have an understanding of what the client wants to work on in advance to the session.
During the first session, the client will receive the cancellation policy, limits of confidentiality, and mandatory reporting. The counselor will walk through these with the client and answer any questions in addition to setting expectations for future sessions.
Fees vary per practicioner. Please consult the practicioner's profile page or contact the practicionor directly to learn more about their specific fees and whether or not they have a consultation fee.
What is Symptom Tracking and why is it important?
