We are small and privately run, which means the intake and therapy process is simpler and more private. We work with many insurance companies, but are comfortable offering a sliding scale for folks whose insurance does not cover our service or who would rather not have their diagnostic information provided to insurance companies for their own peace of mind.
We are also in an easily accessible location in Community Corners in Ithaca, NY where there is both parking and public transportation access. This location provides some anonymity as you enter the counseling office while still being close enough to locations such as Ithaca, Cornell, Dryden, Moravia, and Aurora to make getting there easy.
For far-away families of local college students, with your student’s permission we can work with you to sustain and/or improve the quality of your relationship with your college student while they are in therapy here.
