1. Clinical psychology may be confused with psychiatry which generally has similar goals (e.g. the alleviation of mental distress), but is unique in that psychiatrists are physicians with medical degrees. As such, they tend to focus on medication-based solutions, although some also provide psychotherapeutic services as well. In practice, clinical psychologists often work in multidisciplinary teams with other professionals such as psychiatrists, occupational therapists, and social workers to bring a multimodal approach to complex patient problems.
2. We accept both cash and insurance. We provide services for most of the major insurance companies including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United Behavioral Health, PacifiCare, Tri-west, APS, Magellan, and Medicare.
3. Sliding scales may be an option depending on the therapist or psychiatrist.
