Do you accept insurance?
Kinnear Child Psychology currently accepts payment in the form of check and credit card. HSA/flex spending cards may be used as well. If clients would like to access their out of network insurance benefit, we would be more than happy to provide you with a superbill. By not accepting insurance we are allowing families to receive services in the way that best meets the needs of their child and family.
How many sessions should I expect?
Therapy is intended to be TIME-LIMITED. Children are in treatment an average of 8-20 sessions. Length is based on many factors including intensity/frequency of target behaviors, number of problem behaviors, age, and active participation in treatment (e.g. completing work outside of sessions). Ultimately, length of treatment is based on goal attainment and caregiver(s) feeling equipped to navigate behavior moving forward.
What can I expect in treatment?
Caregivers are considered the change agent and are expected to actively participate in sessions. Home practice between sessions is essential. We practice by the motto "If nothing changes, nothing changes", meaning we target the way caregivers respond, and the way the environment is structured, to modify behavior.
Majority of sessions will include the caregiver, however this may vary on a case-by-case basis.
Where do you see clients?
PCIT can be delivered in-person and virtually. Although the ENTIRE therapy can be delivered virtually, caregivers have the option to attend in-person appointments during the first phase. The second phase is ONLY delivered virtually.
Selective Mutism treatment may be best provided in-person, however virtual and/or school-based sessions may be appropriate on a case-by-case basis.
CBT/SPACE can be delivered in-person and virtually; case specific.
What is your cancellation policy?
Attending sessions consistently helps your family make quicker changes. However, we have worked with families long enough to know sometimes things prevent us from attending appointments. If that happens, please call to let us know that you cannot attend. Appointments canceled at least 2 hours ahead of the appointment will be rescheduled without a fee. If you provide less than 2 hours' notice, or do not contact us at all, you will be charged a $100 no show fee. All balances must be paid in full prior to the start of each appointment.
Do you collaborate with other providers?
Of course! Collaboration with other professionals is important in providing the best care for patients. Based on clinical needs, Dr. Kinnear will work with psychiatrists, physicians, educators/school staff, etc.
What if there is threat of bad weather?
Kinnear Child Psychology will follow Aledo ISD (AISD) for weather-based closures. If AISD is closed, we will be as well. Virtual appointments may be offered on a case-by-case basis. For school delays and early closures sessions may still be offered.
