New Client Appointment Request

All of the therapists make their own appointments.

We are not a participating provider for Medicare, Non-Managed Medicaid, or Health Republic.

If you have a managed care plan with Fidelis we ask that you call member services and verify that your Outpatient Mental Health Benefit is covered by Fidelis and not Medicaid. You may also login to the Fidelis website to verify your benefit. You can click here to be directed there now. If the benefit is not covered you would receive a bill.

If you are requesting an appointment for your child, please use the adolescent appointment form.

While we make every effort to accommodate your request for a desired therapist, due to insurances, specialties and licenses we may be unable to accommodate.

Insurances Accepted:

  • MVP
  • Empire Plan
  • Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Blue Shield of North Eastern NY
  • TriCare
  • Fidelis
  • Aetna (out of network)
  • Cigna (out of network)

It is the clients responsibility to verify coverage, eligibility and co-payment.


Please call us at 518-374-3514 to request a first time appointment.
