Payment for Services
As convenience is one of the ideals we strive for, all payments for services are through secure credit card transactions via the patient portal and linked to the calendar. There is no cost to the patient for credit card processing. No-show appointments are charged to the credit card on file for half the rate of the appointment reserved.

Duration of Treatment
Essentially, after your initial consultation, a good expectation would be to invest in approximately 10-12 sessions over a year with a goal of becoming stabilized/optimized. These sessions could be as long or short as you prefer and if beneficial could be more or less frequent. The goal would be to return back to your primary care provider (Family Physician, Internal Medicine Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant) at the end of the year to maintain your gains.
Free Consultation for Primary Care Providers
Given our aim is that within a year of treatment with Dr. Burson you will return back to your primary care provider, we want to be as helpful in this process as possible. To maximize benefit to you, Dr. Burson will provide free consultation to your primary care provider for up to 6 months on any psychiatric questions your referring provider might have about your care once you transition back to them after adequate treatment with Dr. Burson if you choose to do that. We will also provide communication at the beginning of your treatment informing your primary care provider of the plan and opening up lines of dialogue.
Speaking and Retreat Content
Drs. Rebecca and Sean Burson bring together their unique approach and wealth of experience as a psychiatrist and a chaplain to offer content for retreats and speaking engagements for both the DoD and corporations.
