Each of our Founding Therapists and the 12 Affiliate members of the PARC Group are New York State Certified and Licensed therapists with many years of advanced clinical training and extensive experience in the field. Many have published, taught and supervised other therapists at renowned psychotherapy training institutes in New York. If you wish to find a PARC therapist of a particular gender or sexual orientation, please indicate this when you call to make an appointment.

Our therapists are located in Manhattan, Westchester, Nassau and Southampton, Long Island.
PARC is committed to helping you find solutions that work for you. Some couples receive the greatest benefit from short-term, goal-oriented therapy, while for others a longer period of therapy is indicated. Similarly, some individuals’ issues are better suited to group treatment, while others are better approached individually. If you are interested in therapy, contact us and a PARC therapist will meet with you to help you determine the course of therapy that is best for you.
PARC is independent of managed care and does not accept payment directly from insurance providers. However, if you have out of network coverage from your insurance carrier, your mental health benefits may be reimbursable and we will provide you with the appropriate statement for submission. Check with your carrier for details
PARC is committed to privacy and confidentiality. We are a personal service and work out of network, independent of managed care. This allows us to guarantee the confidentiality of all consultations and records. We do not email or electronically transmit any of our records. As a PARC client, no one will be advised of your participation in counseling unless you specifically request it in writing. We report to no one but you.
If you and your therapist determine that individual therapy is indicated for you or your partner, we will make an appropriate referral to an experienced, skilled, and licensed clinician.
If after careful evaluation by your assigned PARC couple’s or individual therapist, it is felt that medication is indicated, you will be referred to a reputable psychopharmacologist with whom he/she works for a medication evaluation. You will be given a prescription for medication if indicated.
If it is necessary to cancel your appointment, we require 48 hours’ notice. Appointments are in high demand, and your timely cancellation will give another person the opportunity to have access to our services. Please contact the therapist 48 hours in advance of a cancellation, otherwise we must bill you for the session fee. Thank you for your cooperation.

More About Insurance:

Did you know that, if you are labeled with a mental health disorder by your insurance company, it can follow you for many years?
Using your insurance to pay fees automatically places you and your private information in massive databases that are accessible to almost everyone. This information can show up in job applications, promotions, life insurance applications, disability applications, credit applications, and many other ways.

PARC's services are private and confidential.
