What do I need for an initial consultation?
If you are coming into the office for your consultation, please log into the Client Portal (see welcome email for instructions) and view your documents. On the day of your appointment, please bring identification, insurance card, and any previous evaluation reports, Individualized Education Plans, progress reports, or other therapy-related documentation.
If we are conducting an initial consultation over the phone, it is most beneficial to have therapy-related documentation or other specific information ready to reference during our call. Before this appointment, please log into the Client Portal (see welcome email for instructions) and view your documents.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes. We are an in-network provider with Cigna, Blue KC (Preferred Care Blue PPO, Blue Care HMO), TRICARE, Home State Health, Medicare, Humana, United Healthcare, and MoHealthNet (Missouri Medicaid).
