WHAT IS SEX THERAPY?
Sex therapy is a form of psychotherapy that is specific to sexual issues. Sex therapy can be used to address a variety of sexual issues. Individuals or couples of all races, religions, cultures and ethnicities often seek out the help of a sex therapist. Sex therapy is for anyone seeking help for sexual concerns regardless of gender, orientation, physical ability, age or marital status. In addition, sex therapy can help with sex addiction or compulsion, intimacy and infidelity.
WHAT IS THE FEE FOR A SEX THERAPY SESSION?
The fee for service depends on the particular service required. Individual sessions, group and family therapy sessions are also charged accordingly. Fees for evaluations also vary depending upon the type of evaluation you require. We ask that you call our office at 862-324-0029 for information regarding fees and any other questions you may have.
DOES INSURANCE PAY FOR SEX THERAPY?
Most insurance companies cover some or all of the cost of mental health care. Just as they do with other types of therapy, different insurance companies have different requirements regarding how they cover these services. We find that it is best to ask your health insurance carrier in advance your plan’s coverage. We do not participate with any health insurance companies but we will provide a receipt for out-of-network services for you to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement consideration.
DO YOU ACCEPT CHECKS OR CREDIT CARDS?
We accept a variety of payment methods including cash, check, Visa and MasterCard.
HOW LONG DOES SEX THERAPY TAKE?
The length of time that is required for any therapy to work depends on a number of factors. The type or severity of the problem, the individual’s response to the therapy, any other issues which may arise during therapy contribute to the duration of treatment. Each session lasts one hour. Certain types of evaluations may take longer but can be scheduled over two or more sessions.
HOW LONG BEFORE I GET AN APPOINTMENT?
We make every effort to see you as soon as possible when you call for an appointment. Some types of evaluation can be scheduled right away while others may require a few more days between the times you call and when we can see you. Please ask when you call for an appointment if you want to be seen sooner than is usual.
WHAT ARE YOUR OFFICE HOURS?
The therapists here at the New Jersey Center for Sex Therapy have varying schedules. We have daytime, evening and weekend appointments available. Again, we will make every effort to see you at your convenience. Our goal is to make therapy a positive experience for you.
DO YOU PRESCRIBE MEDICATION?
We do not have prescription privileges but we can refer you to a qualified physician who will evaluate you for appropriate medications, if needed. A combination of therapy and medication is sometimes the best course of treatment. Remember, medication usually only treats symptoms and does not get at the cause of your discomfort. Your therapist will be happy to discuss your medication concerns.
