Olivia Carelli, Psy.D, Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Compassionate Psychotherapy for Adults, Teens, and Families
What should a new client know about working with you?
I will have my office reach out to you before your appointment to complete some intake paperwork. This paperwork is important, as I read to find all about you! Sessions run 55 minutes to an hour. When working with teens, the first session is always held with the parents only. Subsequent sessions will be held with the teenagers, and sometimes family sessions if recommended. I may also provide parenting support sessions without the teen present. When working with patients with eating disorders, I use a Health At Every Size, anti-diet approach. Depending on the severity of your eating disorder, I may ask you to see a nutritionist to ensure we are providing you adequate care. I also like to correspond with your psychiatrist and general practitioner.
Some insurance plan types (PPO) reimburse part of the session costs. To confirm your benefits, check your insurance website. Our office can also help you with this and provide a super bill for reimbursement.
What is your typical process for working with clients?
After intake, we typically begin with weekly 55 minute sessions. As you progress in therapy, we can transition to biweekly or monthly sessions. I can provide both in-person and Telehealth.
I am not in-network with any insurances, however superbills can be provided for reimbursement by heath insurance companies to those with out-network-benefits. At this time I am accepting new patients and looking forward to hearing from you.
