Sentier Psychotherapy offers diagnostic assessments with a focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by a licensed masters level clinician for clients aged 16+. These assessments do not replace psychological testing and are not comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations.
Autism Assessments at Sentier are intended to screen for ASD when clients have symptoms that are possibly affecting their ability to access full functioning at work, school, and in relationships. Autism Assessments at Sentier can also provide diagnostic clarity if an existing diagnosis does not seem to capture their full experience. This can also be a supplement to existing therapeutic treatment.
Further evaluation may be required by some educational institutions and workplaces or for disability benefits and/or academic accommodations.
An Autism Assessment at Sentier occurs in four parts:
Mary Maggie Devorak, MS, LMFT is a Masters level therapist at Sentier who provides Autism Assessments. Mary commonly works with folks with neurodivergence in the therapeutic setting. If a client desires to establish ongoing therapy with the therapist for their Autism Assessment, that may be an option based on Mary’s caseload and availability as well as client needs.
Sentier Psychotherapy is an out of network provider with many insurance companies which means that we do not bill insurance companies directly. Your Autism Assessment may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical/flex spending or health care savings accounts. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. If you are interested in using your health insurance for this Assessment, please call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services. Sentier will provide you with a receipt at the end of each session which you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network coverage/reimbursement. Sentier can also submit some claims electronically for client reimbursement; please ask when you contact us for scheduling.
Please see our Questions page for a list of questions to ask your insurance provider when calling to ask about out of network insurance coverage.
