When you schedule a call with an RICBT Intake Coordinator, they will get a feel for the issues you are hoping to address, and make some recommendations for which clinicians or programs might be good first steps. They can also help you to understand the cost of being seen at RICBT and whether your health insurance will help. They will also serve as your ongoing practice representative, to ensure you benefit the most from your therapeutic experience at RICBT.

Dedication to clients extends outside of the office with the RICBT patient portal, which allows you to check your appointments, update your demographic or insurance information, and complete questionnaires to check your progress.
