Professional Services

In an initial interview you will be invited to talk about the problems that concern you. Dr. Benveniste will listen, explore the situation with you and then offer an initial assessment and preliminary recommendations. Those recommendations in the first session may include specific strategies for dealing with the problem, an invitation to continue the evaluation process, if need be, and/or possible referrals to professionals in other related fields that may be useful to call on in dealing with the current problems.

If a patient chooses to continue the evaluation process he or she can expect to meet for a few more sessions after which there is likely to be a recommendation for psychodynamic psychotherapy, counseling, couple’s counseling, or parent consultation depending upon the needs of the case and preferences of the individual.

Fees: $180/ session
Sessions are typically 55-60 minutes.
