***IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ***

If you are not currently credentialed and individually contracted with specific insurance panels, there may be a waiting period between completing our hiring process and being able to see clients. We will complete this process for you, but please understand that we have no control over how quickly each insurance company processes provider applications and credentialing. Some companies take up to 120 days to complete their process. While we do not create or utilize client wait lists, there may be opportunities available to begin seeing clients sooner (those who are covered under non-insurance related contracts, are private pay, or who are willing to use their Out of Network benefits). This; however, cannot be guaranteed.
