When requesting an appointment, a card is requested for payment. No charges are made until the evening prior to your scheduled session. If you wish to use your insurance as out of network, the patient email on file will receive a "Superbill" which they can submit to their insurance once a month to be reimbursed. Rates on average are $100 to $250 a session depending on the reason and duration. Again, any administrative questions, such as fees, can be asked after requesting via secure messaging. To be able to focus on patient care, this is the preferred and most efficient method of contacting the office. Note, not all plans cover all services, such as Couples therapy or for some sexual dysfunctions with organic causes.
If you are interested in couples therapy via telehealth, Dr. Valentino prefers to see each patient individually first, but you have the option of booking as a couple initially if you prefer.
Please remember you must be in New York state to receive treatment by Dr. Valentino as a psychologist, as that is where she is a licensed. Sex therapy consultations for individuals and sex related programs for businesses can be provided virtually in other states, on a case by case basis.
Below you can request your First Session by clicking the red button below.
You will then be contacted soon after requesting with intake forms before confirmation of your appointment and fees (before charges are made).
This is to ensure confidentiality.
PLEASE REQUEST A TIME THAT WILL WORK FOR YOU WEEKLY IN THE EVENT YOU ARE PLEASED WITH THE EVALUATION, AS DR. VALENTINO'S SCHEDULE IS VERY FULL, AND WEEKLY THERAPY SESSIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR OPTIMAL CARE IF YOU WISH TO CONTINUE TREATMENT.
