Can I pay with insurance?

How do I pay?

What if I don’t live in the area?
The possibility of remote sessions can be discussed at the initial telephone call.
How will NRT help?
This kind of therapy goes quickly to the causes of the feelings and beliefs which interfere with being fully alive and creative. Many traumas in our lives—abuse, accidents, serious illnesses and hospitalizations, breakups, to name a few—leave us stressed out with depression, troubles sleeping or eating, unhappy relationships, worrying… The cause might be a single event or a pattern of events, in this life, in our childhood, in our past lives, or any combination.
What if I don’t believe in past lives?
That’s okay—it is not necessary in order for NRT to be effective. Some have even conceptualized such journeys during treatment as metaphors for working on psychological issues.
Will there be medications prescribed?
No. Some ways of promoting healing after NRT sessions may be suggested, but there will be no medicine prescriptions written. In fact, Dr. Judge is not accepting any new patients for regular psychiatric treatment, and will only be doing NRT in her private practice. If you are already in treatment, you are strongly urged to continue seeing your own therapist or therapeutic team while you work in NRT.
Is NRT for everybody?
There are some exceptions. For example, it will not be effective if a person is actively abusing substances—drugs or alcohol—so they would have to be clean and sober for a couple of weeks, and be in a 12-step program before beginning. These things can be discussed further when we first talk on the telephone.
