Jodi S. Rosenfeld, PsyD
Frequently Asked Questions
What are your specialties?
Areas of special interest to me include anxiety (with extensive experience in treating OCD, Panic Disorder, Phobias and Social Anxiety), LGBTQ issues, women's issues, Deafness, later life issues and living with serious illness/palliative care. This, however, is not an exhaustive list. I am trained in and greatly enjoy working with many different kinds of clients. If I am not the right match for your specific needs, I am happy to make an appropriate referral.
What age clients do you work with?
I work with late adolescents and adults.
Can we talk before I meet you?
Yes. I offer a complimentary phone consultation where we can discuss what you are looking for as well as logistics such as fees and scheduling.
What can I expect from a first session?
All sessions (including the first one) are 50 minutes. In our initial meeting, I will ask you to fill out some basic information about yourself and will review my consent for treatment and HIPAA privacy forms. Those things take just a few minutes. Then I begin the process of getting to know you - who you are, where you've come from, and what changes you hope to make in your life. Within the first few sessions we will have treatment goals and a roadmap of how we will get there. It is essential to me that you feel safe and heard throughout the work we do together.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance; however, I will provide you with the necessary paperwork to submit to your insurance company so that you might be reimbursed. To check on your coverage, you should contact your insurance carrier and ask if you have coverage for out of network mental health/psychological services. Be sure to ask about your annual deductible and how much they will cover per session.
What are your hours?
I currently see clients in my Phoenixville office between the hours of 9:00 and 3:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I also have evening hours one day per week.
Do I need to take medication?
Many people with anxiety and depression find medication helpful. Some studies suggest that a combination of medication and psychotherapy is more effective than either one alone. As a Pennsylvania licensed psychologist, I do not prescribe medication. However, I do work closely with psychiatrists and other physicians who prescribe psychotropic medications. If this is something you are interested in, I am happy to speak with you further about it.
