The initial assessment is consultation only.  At the conclusion of the session, Dr. Gould will discuss her impressions and recommendations – including whether or not she feels that the services she provides through this practice are consistent with your needs.


If Dr. Gould does not feel that the services she can provide through this practice are consistent with your needs, she will discuss options for a different provider and/or treatment setting with you.  She will not, however, prescribe medications, schedule a follow up appointment or provide other ‘ongoing’ services/interventions.


Psychiatric conditions/issues that are typically outside the scope of this practice include (but are not limited to):

  • New Onset Psychosis 

  • Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective Disorder

  • Primary Substance Dependence

  • Conditions that require – or are likely to require -- the use of injectable medications.

Services and Fees

Balanced Psychiatric Solutions provides comprehensive psychiatric assessments and ongoing psychiatric care.  We do not contract with any insurance providers and payment is due at the time of service.  We will be glad to provide you with documentation that you can file to get reimbursed for any 'out of network' benefits your insurance company may offer. 

While Dr. Gould will likely incorporate DBT strategies and principles into your treatment, Balanced Psychiatric Solutions does not provide comprehensive DBT.  If Dr. Gould believes that comprehensive DBT would be of benefit to you, she can assist with a referral to a qualified provider.

The focus of Dr. Gould's practice is with children, adolescents, and young adults.  Dr. Gould's practice is not accepting elderly or geriatric patients at this time.

A snapshot of services and fees is offered below.  Please review our General Office Policies for more details.  Office Hours By Appointment Only.
