FAQ'S

Where is Full Spectrum located?

 

Full Spectrum offices are located in Manhattan's East 30's, a short walk from the B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, W, 6, 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains. We are able to provide remote and telehealth psychotherapy to clients anywhere in New York State. Coaching and consultations are available globally.

 

What is creative arts therapy? Does Full Spectrum also offer regular talk therapy?

Creative arts therapy is a profession that uses active engagement in the arts to address mental, emotional, developmental, and behavioral concerns. Creative arts therapists are trained both in verbal psychotherapy as well as creative arts modalities. Creative arts therapists tend to be strength-based, trauma-informed, person-centered, and innovative in their approaches to treatment. No previous experience or expertise in the arts is required to benefit from creative arts therapy.

 

Therapists at Full Spectrum are available for creative arts therapy as well as traditional talk therapy. 

 

What does LGBTQ affirming psychotherapy mean? What if I don’t identify as LGBTQ?

 

LGBTQ affirming psychotherapy speaks to the depathologization of LGBTQ identities and the celebration of resiliency and pride from a mental health perspective. We focus on meeting the needs of diverse LGBTQ communities young and old through strength-based therapeutic practices. All therapists at Full Spectrum have extensive experience and post-graduate training focused on the unique clinical needs of LGBTQ individuals. Full Spectrum is a trans-led practice, and many of our therapists identify as LGBTQ. 

 

While we are especially skilled and savvy at meeting the needs of our communities, all are welcome in the practice regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. 

 

Will my insurance cover my therapy?

 

Many insurance plans provide full or partial coverage for our services. All of our clinicians are in-network with Cigna, Welfleet, and Consolidated Health Plan (CHP). 

 

If you are covered by an insurance plan other than Cigna, Welfleet, or CHP, you may be eligible for partial reimbursement from your insurance company if you have out-of-network mental health benefits.

What are the fees for therapy?

 

Out-of-network 45-minute individual sessions range from $200-$250. Longer sessions are prorated and group therapy rates are lower. If your clinician is in-network with your insurance company, your session may be covered in full, or you may be responsible for a copay each session. We are not able to make any changes to the copays associated with your plan. 

 

Full Spectrum is committed to working with individuals and families who are not able to afford our full session fees, whether they lack out-of-network benefits or are uninsured. All of our clinicians offer generous sliding scale weekly appointment slots. Please contact us for more information about sliding scale openings or any other questions regarding fees and accessibility.

 

 

We are currently offering in-person and virtual sessions. Our therapists and staff have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. We practice thorough cleaning protocols in between sessions, and use medical grade H13 HEPA air filtration in our therapy rooms.
