What to Expect – Testing Clients
Each child and their parent(s) or caregiver(s) will start with a 60-minute interview to assess the reasons for testing, gain an appreciation for your child’s (and your) needs, and plan the assessment, individually tailored to your family. Testing is typically scheduled in 2-to-6 hour slots, on 1 or more days, depending upon the age and capabilities of the child, as well as the reasons for testing. Testing occurs in the mornings, so it is important to get a good night’s sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast. Wear comfortable clothing and don’t forget any requested medical or academic records. Please feel free to bring snacks and/or a cherished toy to help your child feel more comfortable. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
What to Expect – Therapy Clients
Your first therapy session is an hour of “getting to know you”. Your therapist will ask lots of questions about your needs, preferences, and goals for therapy. You will have the opportunity to inquire about the therapeutic process and what your involvement will be. Our goal is to forge a collaborative relationship so that we can develop an effective treatment plan.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to update any necessary forms. Also, please be prepared to discuss any changes in health since your last visit so we can provide you or your child the best care possible.

It is important to know what your plan coverage is, as qualifications for insurance coverage may differ due to the uniqueness of each patient’s care plan. Please contact your insurance company to ask about your behavioral health benefits. Even when you have BCBS PPO they will sometimes carve out the behavioral health benefits and outsource them to another provider who may be out of network for Marvelous Minds.
Currently, our practice accepts the following insurance plan(s):
