Psychologist Session

COMMON QUESTIONS

If you don't see the answer to your question, please feel free to contact me.

 

WHAT TYPE OF THERAPY DO YOU DO?

The approach to therapy depends on the client's needs. Dr. Weingarden has training in a range of therapeutic approaches including psychodynamic, interpersonal and cognitive behavioral.

HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET FOR THERAPY SESSIONS?

Weekly is typical, however some individuals opt to meet twice weekly, or less frequently when finishing therapy (every other week or monthly).

HOW LONG DOES SOMEONE STAY IN THERAPY?

Therapy can be time-limited or longer term. Time-limited therapy is appropriate when the client has a specific problem to be addressed, and the problem is appropriate to address in a brief therapy. More typically, people do not set a specific end for therapy.

WHERE IS YOUR OFFICE?

Dr. Weingarden offers both telehealth and in-person session. In-person sessions are held in Aspinwall, at 101 Emerson Avenue, Pittsburgh PA, 15215.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT?

I accept payment after the session through a HIPAA compliant webpage (your client portal). In most cases, you receive an invoice the following day, or after your insurance processes the bill. I can also accept cash or check.

WHAT IF I'M EXPERIENCING A CRISIS?

Please call 911 if it is an emergency. For mental health crises, call Re:Solve Crisis (888) 796-8226. If calling emergency services is not immediately necessary, clients can contact me directly. If I cannot answer immediately, I will call back at my earliest opportunity. I do not take emergency calls for non-clients - such calls should be directed to the emergency contacts listed above.
