Counseling Intake & Individual Therapy: $150/session
The counseling intake is a 60 minute comprehensive session focused on understanding historical and present-day clinical concerns, preliminary diagnoses (if desired), and personal goals for treatment. Individual therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length and conducted via secure video; HIPAA-compliant phone sessions are available as needed.
Autism and ADHD Assessments: $800-$950
Neurodiversity-affirming assessments are offered for adults seeking to expand understanding of their own identity and neurotype. While self-diagnosis is embraced within the Autistic community, assessments are offered for individuals that find formal evaluation to be an important part of their own self-exploration journey. Additional information on the evaluation process can be found at the following link: Autism and ADHD Assessments
Gender-Affirming Care Letters: Free
Aligned with the Gender Affirmative Letter Access Project (GALAP), we are committed to providing a minimum of one pro-bono assessment and letter writing service a month for individuals in Pennsylvania or Maryland seeking gender-affirming medical care.
“They said I could pass as normal, that I was clever and no one would ever know. They lied.
Not about passing. The lie was hidden beneath, in the desire for me to be the same as them.
I am extraordinary. They should have helped me soar, be more of me, not less.”
― Anna Whateley
Authentic Therapy Services is an Out of Network Provider.
While understanding the implications for clients with active health benefits, ATS is a values-driven practice focused on providing affirmative treatment services that are not always aligned with the deficit-based medical model of managed care.
We have chosen to prioritize our clients’ right to privacy and their role as primary-decision makers regarding diagnoses (or lack thereof), confidentiality of treatment records, and genuine treatment needs. Given our work with neurodivergent, LGBTQIAP+, and other minority communities, providing out-of-pocket services allows us to minimize the risk of harm, including (but not limited to) rejection of coverage based on reviews of private health information by complete strangers.
As an Out of Network provider, clients will be billed at time of service and are responsible for all upfront payments. ATS is readily prepared to offer monthly documentation (known as “superbills”) for clients to submit to their insurance for reimbursement. For more information, please review our guide Out of Network Benefits and Good Faith Estimates.
