For New Clients: What to Expect
Dr. Batista devotes a great deal of time getting to know you. At your first visit, you will spend about an hour and a half with her exploring your medical and mental health history, what your goals are, and prior experiences in treatment, if any, and she will recommend any routine diagnostic tests that may be needed. Before your visit is over, she will develop a plan with you that addresses the goals you have identified and will answer any questions you may have.
In addition to sessions in the office, your treatment will include access to Dr. Batista by phone and email (and at times video conferencing or text messaging when necessary) to touch base regularly and keep you on track with your plan and treatment. In contrast to traditional practices, communication when outside the office is very much welcomed.
Freedom from insurance contracts permits her to spend as much time with each individual patient as necessary. Rather than the standard “15 minute visit” so often covered by insurance companies, a typical session with Dr. Batista is 45 minutes, or more, depending your individual treatment plan. Longer, more relaxed visits, facilitate greater attention to your needs.
Dr. Batista will:
- Provide compassionate and comprehensive mental health care
- Always advocate for your interests over those of an increasingly complex, impersonal healthcare system
- Coordinate the care you may need from other specialists
- Help you to understand your health concerns and gain accurate, relevant information to help you in your treatment
Info for Clients who are already in therapy or coaching:
Dr. Batista takes pride in providing the best quality treatment to suit your needs. If you are already working with a therapist, Dr. Batista is able to coordinate with your current therapist to assist with your treatment, for example in providing consultation for medications or a second opinion regarding your diagnosis or treatment plan.
You do not need to end treatment with your therapist in order to work with Dr. Batista.
Given the importance of physical health to your mental health, Dr. Batista will also coordinate your treatment with any other medical professionals who are working with you, such as your primary care doctor.

Info for patients with insurance coverage
Dr. Batista practices outside the insurance-based system. Freedom from insurance contracts permits her to spend as much time with each individual patient as necessary, and to keep her practice size small so that she can be available to individual clients when needed. Rather than the standard “5 minute visit” so often covered by insurance companies, a typical session with Dr. Batista is 45 minutes, or more, depending your individual treatment plan.
If you have an insurance plan with “out of network benefits” your treatment with Dr. Batista may be eligible for reimbursement through your insurance. Dr. Batista will help you to seek reimbursement to the full extent possible and also help you to understand your medical benefit eligibility. You will be responsible for submitting claim to your insurance using the itemized invoices provided by Dr. Batista.
