Appointments can be scheduled either by calling me at 973.801.7968 or emailing me at bgalen31@gmail.com. I always return calls within 24 hours. If you don’t hear from me, it means I somehow missed your message. Please call again.

Please take advantage of my free ½ hour consult to see if I am the right therapist for you.

IF YOU ARE IN CRISIS, DO NOT WAIT FOR A CALL FROM ME. CALL 911 OR GO DIRECTLY TO YUR NEAREST HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM.

Cancellations:

    • I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, so that I may offer the time to others seeking appointments.

Insurance

Questions to ask your insurance company:

  1. For out of network benefits, what is my coverage?
  2. Do I have a deductible?
  3. How much of the deductible have I already met?
  4. Is a referral necessary?
  5. How many sessions per year will your insurance cover?

I DO NOT ACCEPT INSURANCE IN FLORIDA AT THIS TIME. I TAKE AETNA IN NEW JERSEY

However, if you have out of network benefits, I will submit to your insurance company on your behalf.

Forms

Once we have decided to work together, you can download and  fill out my treatment agreement, a confidentiality agreement, an intake form and a general questionnaire. (They can be found under Resources on this website) There may be occasions when I have other documents for you and I will send them via email.

Payments

  • A $50 deposit is required for the first appointment 24 hours prior to the first appointment.
  • Payment is due at time of service. (This means the day of service- within 24hrs of the service.)
  • A sliding scale may be available based on need. Please discuss with me before our first appointment.

I accept payment by two methods:

  1. I accept payment by credit card. (in person or on the phone)
  1. Checks, with prior approval.
