All new patients must go through our new Pre-Assessment Questionnaire to establish care with a medical experts from Evolve Psychiatry's clinical team. All established patients must complete the interest form above to allow our Patient Sccess team to prepare for your assessment.

Is counseling only offered to patients who are on medications?

Patients collaborate on a treatment plan with their psychiatrist which can include either only medication management, only counseling, or both.  Patients are always offered in-depth education and recommendations on their options but the eventual decision is left up to the patient. Our goal will always be to minimize medications.

How soon will I be scheduled for the assessment?

Our team will verify your mental health benefits for therapy services and contact you for scheduling within 48 hours of submission.

How much does the assessment cost?

Depending on patient's insurance benefits coverage, patients can expect to pay their usual copay unless they have an unmet deductible.  For out-of-network patients who wish to pay privately, please see our private pay options. The exact financial responsibility will be quoted, in advance, at the time of scheduling.

How long is the counseling assessment?

Patients can expect to meet our a supervisor on our Therapy team for approximately 45 to 60 minute assessment.

Will I have to fill out another intake or repeat my psychiatric history all over again?

Once you are scheduled, our Counseling Supervisor will preview all available Evolve Psychiatry and outside medical records in advance of the appointment to ensure a seamless and value-adding experience. If there is anything you would like to add to your medical records, you can upload them to your On Patient portal.

What will I be discussing in the meeting?

  • Explore your current mental health status

  • Review your counseling history, if any
