You Have Questions, We Have Answers
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have insurance you’re probably covered! We work many major insurance companies. If we determine that you have in-network or out-of-network coverage, we do all the work for you, so that you can focus less on costs and more on your well-being.
Whether or not you have insurance, we encourage you to give us a call to discuss your options tailored to your specific situation. Call: (212) 575-GROW (4769) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start your journey with Kip Therapy.
We work with a wide variety of clients. Many of our clients are struggling with anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, substance abuse, identity issues, body image issues/disordered eating, and career and life transitions.
We work hard to serve clients who have typically felt misunderstood by other psychotherapists—especially the LGBTQ+ community. Because marginalized communities so often experience significant stress and trauma related to their identities, our therapists work from a trauma-informed approach. You can learn more about the issues we work with, as well as the individual, relationships, and teens and family counseling we provide here at kiptherapy.com/focus.
The best way to start working with one of our therapists is to call (212) 575-GROW (4769) or email email@example.com. If you are unsure which therapist you want to work with, our call specialists are there to help guide you.
We also encourage you to take a look at our therapist page. You may decide that more than one therapist may better meet your needs—in that case, please let our call specialists know which therapists you’d prefer working with, and they’ll do their best to guide you (depending on availability, schedule, insurance coverage, and other factors).
During the first session, your therapist will focus on developing a relationship with and understanding of you. This may include a more detailed understanding of what is bringing you to therapy, the history of what you might be struggling with, and what your goals are for treatment. Your therapist will also review Kip’s policies and procedures and what you can expect from treatment.
We suggest working with one of our therapists for 3-6 sessions to get a feel for their personality and style. If you’re struggling to connect or feel comfortable with your therapist, we suggest you speak with your therapist about what is and isn’t working for you. If you’d still like to explore other options, we will happily work with you to match you with someone that better fits your needs. Just email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do! While most of our clients choose to work with their therapists virtually, we have opened a new location at Columbus Circle in New York City to meet with clients in person. Contact us to find out which therapists are available to meet with you in our offices.
While we would love to be able to work with clients no matter where they reside, regulations require us to work with clients who reside in New York State.
Let’s match you with the right Kip expert.

Everything you need to know for a great experience with Kip therapy.
Ensuring that all of your information and sessions are private and safe with us is one of the most important parts of building a strong relationship between client and therapist. The only situations where we can break confidentiality is if a client is actively suicidal, homicidal, and/or if a child is suspected of being abused or neglected.
We ask that our clients come to session every week, and we are not able to do biweekly sessions.
No Surprise Billing
We ensure transparency and clarity in the billing process for therapy services. It means that clients will not encounter unexpected or hidden charges for their therapy sessions. With a commitment to upfront communication, our billing practices provide a clear breakdown of fees and services. This approach allows clients to have peace of mind and focus solely on their mental well-being during their therapeutic journey, without worrying about unexpected financial surprises.
If you need to cancel a session, we require at least 24 hours' (1 days') notice. Sessions that are missed or cancelled without 1 days' notice incur a $100 fee for each occurrence. Weekends are excluded; therefore, appointments scheduled for Mondays must be cancelled by the prior Friday. Sessions may be rescheduled for a date within 1 week of the original appointment, based on calendar availability and your therapist's discretion. We require 12 hours' minimum notice to reschedule an appointment. A session may be rescheduled only once. If for any reason you cancel, or do not show for, the rescheduled appointment, then there will be a $200 charge: $100 for the original appointment and $100 for the rescheduled appointment.
