Each consultation begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your current challenges, life story, strengths, and hopes. Following this evaluation, you and Dr. Kaplan will come up with a treatment plan together based on your unique goals and needs.
Psychotherapy is most helpful when sessions occur at least weekly. Sometimes, Dr. Kaplan will recommend meeting for psychotherapy multiple times per week in order for you to achieve meaningful and lasting benefits. Each psychotherapy session lasts for 50 minutes.
For many psychiatric conditions, combining medications and therapy can lead to faster improvement. Dr. Kaplan prescribes psychiatric medication based on your individual needs and preferences. Often, Dr. Kaplan provides psychotherapy and medication together. Sometimes, Dr. Kaplan also sees patients for medication management only, particularly if a patient is already connected to another therapist. Medication-only sessions last for either 25 or 50 minutes.
Consultation for New Parents
Dr. Kaplan provides consultations for difficulties related to parenting infants and toddlers. These consultations include not only meeting with the caregiver individually but also observing the child and caregiver together. Based on this assessment, Dr. Kaplan offers recommendations for changes at home, and she sometimes suggests a specialized type of psychotherapy to strengthen the bonds between baby and caregiver.
Reproductive Mental Health Consultation
For women who are pregnant, who are considering becoming pregnant, or who are pursuing fertility treatments, Dr. Kaplan provides consultations and second opinions about psychiatric treatment and lifestyle modifications.
Because of Dr. Kaplan’s commitment to providing personalized, flexible, and comprehensive mental health care, this practice is not in-network with any insurance plans at this time. At your request, Dr. Kaplan will provide you with documentation to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network benefits.
