Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of treatment do you provide?

    At Needham Psychotherapy Associates, we provide individual, couples, family and child therapy as well as workshops.  Visit our provider page for more detailed information on each of our providers client population, clinical expertise, and insurance plans.  

  • Can I use my health insurance for treatment? 

    To make our services accessible, many NPA providers accept payment through some insurance plans. Visit our Clinician Page for further information about which insurances are accepted by clinicians. All health insurance policies cover mental health services under guidelines that refer to “medically necessary” services. Some insurance companies may carve out their mental health benefits to a managed care company (i.e., Optum is the company that provides mental health benefits for United HealthCare). Insurance will typically provide coverage for face-to-face sessions with a licensed clinician for a diagnosable mental health problem. Your policy will specify how much the company will pay the provider for services, and the amount, if any, of copayment that is your responsibility. Your policy may place a limitation on the number of sessions that you can receive. If you use the allotted number of visits authorized by your plan, your clinician may seek authorization for additional sessions from your insurance company.

  • How do I make an appointment?

    Call our central intake line at 781-449-7522. If we have providers available, we will return your call within three business days.  Alternatively, you may contact any of our providers directly.  If no providers are available at the time of your call, consider one of our workshop offerings.  

  • What if I need help urgently? 

    If you are in need of urgent psychiatric care or are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, please call 988 (mental health crisis support line), 911, or visit your nearest emergency room.
