Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if a group is a good fit for me?

You can start by reading through the group descriptions on our website. In addition, all of our groups require an intake session to review your history, establish personal goals, and assess if the group is likely to be a good fit for you. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have. If either you or the therapist think the group isn’t a fit, we will do our best to provide you with recommendations. 

Can I continue to see my individual therapist?

Yes! In fact some of our groups require that you also be seeing an individual therapist on a regular basis. In some cases we may recommend a specific type of individual therapy.

I'm on medical leave from college or I'm taking a gap year. Can I still join a group for college students?

Yes! Our college groups include enrolled students as well as students on medical leave or taking a gap year. We do require that you have graduated high school in order to join one of our groups for college students. 

Are your groups welcoming for people who identify as LGBTQIA?

Yes, we strive to create an inclusive environment in all of our groups and very frequently have group members who are part of the LGBTQIA community.

How does payment work?

Village Psychology is an out of network provider, and we do not contract with insurance companies. Upon request, we will provide a statement that you can submit directly to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. You would need to check with your insurance company to find out the details of your plan, and we cannot guarantee reimbursement. It may be helpful to provide the procedure codes for the services you are inquiring about. Common procedure codes for our services are “90791” for an in-person intake session and “90853” for an in-person group therapy session. If the service is held via telehealth, the procedure codes are “90791-95” for a telehealth intake session and “90853-95” for a telehealth group therapy session. You may also want to find out if you have a deductible.

Can I participate remotely?

Yes, as long as you are in Massachusetts, you can participate via telehealth. All of our groups are currently held online using secure video-conferencing.

When do the groups start?

Most of our groups are rolling and have start dates available every 6-8 weeks when there is space. Please inquire for details about upcoming openings and start dates.
