Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is your financial policy? Do you accept insurance?
A: Blake Mitchell & Associates is a fee-for-service clinic, which means full payment is expected at the time of service. We do not accept insurance payments; however, we are happy to provide a receipt after each appointment that includes information needed to receive compensation from most insurance providers.
Q: How often do you expect to see someone?
A: The short answer is that the frequency of treatment varies with each individual. However, several general guidelines are suggested. Weekly appointments are ideal, especially at the beginning of treatment, primarily in order to gain relational comfort and consistency. Following the initial stages of treatment, the frequency will vary depending on the unique needs of the individual.
Q: How long does treatment typically last?
A: The short answer is that the duration of treatment varies with each individual. For acute symptom relief, treatment can typically be effective within the first several weeks. For more long-standing concerns, the length of treatment can extend for longer periods of time.
Q: Do you ever recommend medications? Do you prescribe medications?
A: On occasion we recommend someone for a medication evaluation. BM&A does not prescribe medications. However, we can make referrals to several outstanding psychiatrists in the area.
