Nancy Wender,  LCSW

Consultation/Scheduling of Sessions

The initial consultation is 1½ hours in length, and at the conclusion of the consultation, treatment recommendations will be offered and discussed. For subsequent sessions, meeting weekly or in some cases twice weekly is preferable, in order to maintain continuity and contact.  However, with the realities of work commitments and one’s economic situation, some patients opt for sessions on a biweekly basis.  Ongoing sessions for individuals and couples are 60 minutes in length.

Ms. Wender works in an interactive style in collaboration with her patients.


Fees are determined in the initial consultation, depending on the number of sessions/week, the time of day and one’s financial situation.  However, the fee on a sliding scale basis is available. Invoices are prepared at the end of the month.  Payment is expected at the session in which the invoice is presented, at the next session or by mail.  Ms. Wender accepts most major credit cards.

Ms. Wender is happy to fill out an insurance form and submit it for reimbursement, should the patient have out-of-network benefits as part of his/her policy.  She is not an in-network provider on any insurance panels.

Cancellation Policy

A minimum of 24 hours cancellation in advance of the session is expected.  Every effort is made to accommodate a patient’s need to reschedule a session.  However, if less than 24 hours notice is given without being able to reschedule within a mutually agreeable time frame, then the patient will be responsible for a cancellation fee.
