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" once a month, which you can submit to your insurance to be reimbursed. Rates on average are $100 to $250 a session depending on the reason and duration, and are covered out of network usually at a rate of 60%-70% depending on your plan. No specific reimbursement details can be provided by the office, so please ask your insurance carrier any specific questions about your coverage.
Any other administrative questions can be asked after requesting via secure messaging once you become a patient by making an appointment. To be able to focus on patient care, this is the preferred and most efficient method of contacting the office.
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.

You will then be contacted soon after requesting with a confirmation and intake forms required before the time of your appointment.
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.
