The CCCW charges clients on a sliding scale, based on need.  Clients who would like to request fees that are reduced from those printed below will be given instructions by their therapist on how to apply. Clients should understand that in order to receive a reduced rate for any service, they must provide certain income information to the center director. Also, as a training clinic, the CCCW does not accept medical insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid for payment of services. Clients are responsible for paying the entirety of their bill. The CCCW accepts cash, checks, and credit cards.

Please Note: All services at the CCCW are videotaped, for the purposes of training our students.  We understand that not all clients will be comfortable with this, but it is a requirement of our program.

Fee

Intake Prior to beginning counseling, psychotherapy, or vocational/career counseling, clients must undergo an intake evaluation. The intake is generally between 2 and 4 sessions and includes in-depth interviews with a therapist, as well as filling out some surveys. At the end of the intake process, clients will either begin their ongoing service (counseling or vocational/career counseling) or have a feedback session with 

$50 for the entire process, regardless of how many sessions it takes*

*Please note: the intake fee is generally not available for a reduced fee, except in special circumstances. Please discuss with the center director before the intake process begins to be considered for an exception.

Counseling and Psychotherapy We offer counseling and psychotherapeutic services to help improve the functioning of children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Services focus on individual, group, couples, and family work to address problems in living and adjustment, family relationships, social difficulties, and school problems (for children), among other issues. $40 per session
Vocational/Career Counseling We offer counseling services aimed directly at issues related to work and career, including major career decisions, job changes, improving relations and productivity at work, being a better manager, and other job-related issues. $40 per session
Psychological Assessment We offer psychological assessment/evaluation to help describe a client’s current functioning, the underlying causes of current problems or issues, and for clarification of diagnosis. Ultimately, the purpose of psychological assessment is to make concrete, specific recommendations for how an individual can improve her or his life. Components of assessments include cognitive strengths and weaknesses, an evaluation of personality, and dynamics of emotional functioning. These assessments can help clarify and understand problems in living and adjustment; social, emotional, and behavioral functioning in children, adolescents, and adults; family relationships; among other issues. 

Please note: currently, we do not have the capacity to provide assessment services to non-English-speaking individuals/families.

$1,000 for the entire process, including the report and feedback session
Neuropsychological and Psychoeducational Assessment

We offer neuropsychological and educational assessments/evaluations, which include the cognitive and emotional components of a basic psychological assessment, but also include a greater emphasis on strengths and weaknesses related to learning (including evaluations for learning disabilities and differences), memory, attention (including evaluations for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), giftedness (for school placement), and other related cognitive functions. These evaluations may be used for appropriate educational accommodations, testing accommodations, required preschool assessments, and treatment recommendations.

Please note: currently, we do not have the capacity to provide assessment services to non-English-speaking individuals/families.

$1,500 for the entire process, including the report and feedback session
Public Education The CCCW also serves as the arm of the Applied Psychology department at NYU for professional and community education. We will be inviting presenters to discuss topics of interest on relevant and timely professional areas of concern. We will also feature lectures to the general public in relevant mental health and assessment topics.
