MUSE Psychological Associates

Evaluation and Resolution of Personal Concerns

Individual Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is a vehicle that facilitates positive changes in the individual's emotional wellbeing. To promote such changes, Muse Psychological Associates utilizes those approaches which have proved to be most effective, as determined by evidence-based research. Whatever the "technique" chosen for a specific person with a particular concern, however, psychotherapy is based primarily on the relationship between client and professional, a relationship which is characterized by trust and support.

Couple Counseling: When a couple find itself "stuck", either through unresolved conflict or due to a need to grow, it is advantageous to reinforce communication within the couple. Couple counseling, by introducing a third, objective person (the therapist) into couple discussions, offers a stage upon which difficulties can be negotiated within "neural" territory.

 Evaluation/Testing: Evaluation is a continuous process, which is performed on an ongoing basis throughout treatment. The use of psychological tests can sometimes aid in the evaluation process. Dr. Muse performs ADHD testing, including the BASC-2, DuPaul ADHD Scale and CPT.

Medication Consultation: Medication can be indicated or counterindicated for a given person. Dr. Muse reviews medication where needed and makes recommendations to the patient and to the prescribing professional.

A Note on Fees


We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance before the initial evaluation to guarantee that your treatment is covered. Dr. Muse currently accepts Anthem insurance, whereas Gloria Frigola is accepting no insurance; nonetheless, we provide the documentation that you later turn into your insurer for reimbursement, if you have such coverage. For out-of-network or self-pay arrangements, we request payment at the time that service is rendered.

Our current fees are $200 for individual therapy with Dr. Muse, and $160 for individual or couple therapy with Ms. Frigola.
