Will I be in therapy forever?
Dr. Lish, clinical psychologist, works with you with the goal of feeling better as soon as possible so that you can “graduate” from therapy. Many clients feel significant improvements within a few weeks.
What is exposure therapy?
Exposure and Response Prevention treatment (ERP treatment) has been proven to be the gold standard in treatment for OCD, anxiety, panic attacks, and other anxiety disorders.
In therapy with Dr. Lish, she will work with you to gradually become comfortable doing the things that your condition prevented you from doing previously. Depending on your needs and goals we may practice social interactions, driving, running errands, going to school, and more.
Do you take insurance?
Dr. Lish is an in-network provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. If you have Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, check your health insurance card. If the toll-free telephone number for “behavioral health” is 1-800-524-4010, 1-800-444–2426, or 1-877-566-2583 then you are eligible. Please include this number, as well as the behavioral health copay amount, also on the back of the card, in the “message” section of the contact form.
If you have a different insurer, Dr. Lish can provide a superbill. Check with your insurance company to see whether your out-of-network benefits include therapy or whether it is possible to arrange a single case agreement. It never hurts to ask. If you do not have Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance you must pay before each session by cash, credit, or debit card.
Private clients can pay with cash, credit, or debit card (no checks). Each 55-minute sessions costs $200.
