Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are some questions that new clients often ask. Expand the answers by clicking on the question.

As an independent contractor, each therapist determines his or her own fees. Please discuss the specific fees with your therapist. If you are interested in reduced fees, you may be able to receive treatment from a Post-doctoral Resident under the direct supervision of Dr. Peterson. You may contact the Resident directly to determine if this would be an appropriate option for you.

Insurance is accepted by most providers at the Tampa Bay Center for Relational Psychology. Since we are independent, each therapist belongs to different insurance panels. Please discuss insurance coverage with your intended therapist. Some of our providers also accept clients with no insurance and some use a sliding scale for payment.

Payments are typically made by check or cash at the time of service.

Services are available by appointment on weekdays. Some evening appointments are also available.

Because therapy is an individualized process, your therapist will need to gather some information from you before being able to answer that question. Your preferences about goals and direction are also important to answering that question. We suggest that the first few sessions serve as an opportunity to gather information, become acquainted and formulate a plan together. A good time to ask your therapist about length of treatment is during the first few sessions.

A good place to begin is with the professional’s license and credentials. You want to find someone who received reputable training – usually from a graduate program accredited by the American Psychological Association – and that he or she is licensed with the state. The credentials of all of our clinicians meet these standards. Asking about the professional’s background or expertise in areas related to your concerns is always helpful. Probably the most important thing is the sense of comfort that you experience in speaking with the therapist. This aspect of selecting a therapist is a very personal decision. We always encourage you to ask questions and let us know if your therapy is beneficial for you.

You may choose to terminate therapy at any time. The first few sessions are designed to allow you to get to know the therapist and for your therapist to begin to tailor their approach to working with you. If you have concerns about your therapy, we encourage you to talk to your therapist about your concerns. He or she will make every attempt to help address issues in a positive and productive way or help you find an alternative. We also value a good “fit” for each patient and are interested to help you find someone with whom you work well.

More information about the training and approach for each clinician is available on the Meet Us page. You may also contact the therapist directly to discuss an approach that would be right for you and the dilemmas you are facing.

Each licensed psychologist at TBCRP is an individual practitioner, maintaining his or her own records and billing system, as well as full responsibility for your care. Information is not shared between practitioners unless you specifically sign a form authorizing release of information. Clinicians at the center do share certain expenses and administrative tasks. We also hold similar values about the importance of ethical and competent treatment, using methods that are effective, and respecting and collaborating with patients in their own care. If your clinician is completing requirements for licensure or for a doctoral degree, he or she is under the direct supervision of a psychologist and you or your family are patient(s) of that psychologist’s practice. This arrangement ensures that you will receive capable and competent care and may make treatment more affordable. The clinician will advise you of the supervision arrangements and give you the opportunity to clarify and ask questions.
