Unlike most mental health practices, KCPC only provides treatment approaches that have demonstrated the highest level of support. This means that our therapy services have demonstrated the ability to be the premier treatment for a condition that not only effectively treats the issues but generally does so in a much shorter time than many other less-supported treatment approaches that are often selected based upon therapist personal preference rather than scientific evidence.
Unfortunately, a lack of treatment success can often be due the therapist having a limited level of training and providing treatment that was not well-supported by science or providing merely supportive therapy that might have felt beneficial shortly after the session ended but never really addressed the actual issue. While patients, and parents of children who are in therapy, generally need to be ready to commit to different ways of doing things, finding a therapist who is committed to and well-trained in empirically-supported treatments is not always that easy, and many people seeking services are unaware of the important difference in levels of training clinicians might have and the efficacy of certain treatment approaches. Patients will be provided services by a doctoral-level psychologist who has received specific education and experience in empirically-supported treatments and has a strong personal and professional commitment to providing the highest quality of care available.
Psychologists at KCPC do not accept any insurance. Prospective patients who wish to use insurance should check with their insurance company to determine their out-of-network benefits to see if they can expect any amount of reimbursement. However, paying out-of-pocket for effective treatment can easily be less expensive than paying office co-pays for extended period of time for ineffective treatment. For example paying for ineffective treatment with little benefit for 52 weeks at $50 co-pay/session= $2,600, while paying out-of-pocket for 16 sessions that are more likely to be beneficial is only $1,600. Consequently, it is possible to save $1000 dollars and receive benefits in only 16 weeks that are unlikely to be achieved in one year of supportive therapy.
