We are a family-style group practice comprised of locally grown mental health professionals who provide high-quality psychotherapy to people in and around New Paltz, NY. We see the good in all people so that they can see the good in themselves.
What sets us apart from the rest?
We value the power of knowledge. Our therapists don’t just give coping strategies and homework assignments, they provide important background information about the specific issue you are facing. Presenting concerns may include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relational sssues, family members with addiction, and so much more. We like to explain the underpinnings to help answer the “why” questions that often emerge in therapy. We offer outdoor therapy sessions, mindfulness walks on the rail trail, and hiking therapy groups.
We work creatively with our clients by building on their strengths. If a client has a passion for drawing and storytelling, we will incorporate it into the therapeutic process. It isn’t uncommon for our therapists to have their music loving clients bring songs to session that help convey how they feel, or have our theatrical clients write a monologue to someone in their lives who they are struggling with.
Our Core Values
Relationships – We focus on connecting and collaborating through embodying inclusivity, approachability, availability, community and heart in all of our endeavors.
Excellence in Quality of Work – We never sacrifice quality of work, no matter what. We go above and beyond to provide a sophisticated service with top notch therapists. We strive to continually improve our offerings through seeking out education and training whenever possible.
We make therapy enjoyable! We understand that therapy is not only made up of difficult growing moments, but it can also be fun and creative. We are changing the way people think of therapy; we work hard, but we also find joy in the process. A trusting, safe environment allows for full expression of the self. Another way we infuse life into our work is our emphasis on nature. We offer hiking groups, mindfulness meditative walks on the lovely rail trail, as well as outside sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new clients?
We are not currently accepting new clients (as of 6/21/22). We will likely have availability again around mid-July. Please email us if you would like to be added to our waitlist and we will reach out as soon as we have availability.
What can I expect to get out of therapy at IMHC?
You will receive the undivided attention from a certified mental health professional who is 100% dedicated to helping you reach your therapy goals. Not sure what your goals are? No problem! Part of our job is helping you organize your thoughts, feelings and motivations to help you get on track.
How much does therapy cost?
We are committed to making top-quality therapy accessible to as many people as possible (our fees are well below the median rate for our area, and we are working to increase the number of insurances that we can accept). For individual therapy, out-of-pocket session rates range from $85-$150 depending on the provider. We offer reduced-rate sessions with our practicum and intern student counselors in order to make mental health care accessible to as many folks as possible while training the next generation of star therapists.
Do you take insurance?
Effective July 2022, some of our therapists will be accepting Aetna, United Healthcare, Oxford, Oscar, BlueCross BlueShield, and Kingston Trust Fund insurances. To find out if your plan covers our services, you may call your insurance provider directly and inquire about your coverage for outpatient mental health counseling. You may also ask us when you call our intake line. If your therapist does not accept insurance or you have an insurance type that is not listed above, you may qualify to be reimbursed for a portion of your payment by submitting an Out-of-Network claim. To find out more, call your insurance company and ask about your “Out-of-Network Benefits”.
Can I come in for a consultation?
Please do! If you are shopping around for the right fit, we welcome you to set up a consultation with any of our therapists. This is a great way to “try on” a provider before committing to the process. Keep in mind that regular session fees apply to consultations.
What if I need to cancel my session?
Life happens, right? If you need to cancel, we won’t hold it against you. We will always reserve your appointment slot for you, no matter what. Please inform us with more than 24-hours’ notice if you need to cancel in order to avoid the cancellation fee.
