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.

Marvelous Minds is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO. We are out of network with all other insurers (including Blue Choice PPO plans).
Clients are responsible for copays, deductibles, and any amount not covered by insurance. Before you schedule your first appointment please contact your insurance company to determine your coverage for behavioral health services. Some helpful questions to consider:
- What are my behavioral health benefits?
- What is the coverage amount per session?
- How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
- Will my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider? How much?
In some cases we are able to submit claims on your behalf to out-of-network insurers. When we are unable to do so, we will provide you with an insurance bill to submit to your insurer.
Sliding scale fees available to those in need.
