Welcome to Dwyer-Elias Counseling and Therapy, P.C. (DECAT, P.C.)

Appointments are usually scheduled for 50 min. Frequency of which an individual is seen will be determined by you and your therapist. You may discontinue treatment at any time, please discuss any decisions with your therapist. Voicemail is checked regularly, however, in the event of an emergency and you are not able to reach your therapist, please go to the nearest emergency room.

If you need to reschedule your appointment, please give the office 24 hours notice. The office voicemail is confidential and a private message can be left.

It is in your best interest to check with your insurance carrier before your first appointment to verify your coverage including; (1) deductible and co-pay amounts, (2) whether pre-authorization is required before you are seen. Co-pays will be collected at each visit.

Prior to your appointment, think about what is bothering you. How long? Has it changed? What have you tried to make things better? What has been successful? What has not been helpful? Write down significant dates and bring them with you to help you remember more clearly.

Consider what outcome you would like from coming to therapy. Coming to your appointment prepared will make your time more productive and will give you some clarity as to what you hope to gain from coming to therapy.


I look forward to meeting you.
