Q & A:


(Helps therapists navigate credentialing, billing and all things insurance )

Friday, September 24 , from 4-5PM. $50


Our Practice Manager, Pete Stott, and Dr. Birklein will be hosting a Zoom consultation session for questions related to:

* Insurance issues
* Billing
* Coding
* Claims filing
* Claims reconciliation
* Credentialing
* Telehealth and Covid-related coverage

Pete is an insurance and billing specialist and certified professional coder who has worked extensively for insurance companies in the past as a consultant and trainer. He currently administers Practice Management for several NYU post-doc clinicians. Pete is a smart and nifty wizard with a vast knowledge base who deals with insurance issues in a swift, yet detail-oriented and organized manner.

As a Practice Manager he is attending to all details of an individual or group practice, e.g. setting up the practice and streamlining its different areas of performance, managing software and Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems, smoothing out insurance, billing and claim issues, and managing the on-boarding process and credentialing of clinicians.

During the Q&A, we will be mainly focusing on billing and insurance issues, and COVID and Telehealth issues/coverage. Future sessions will expand to Practice Management, software, and systems/organizational issues.

To get a better understanding of what particular issues participants would like to have addressed, I added a Google form to this email. Please fill it out and let us know what questions/areas you’d like have addressed. Participation cost is $50 and the number of participants will be limited.

The session is planned for Friday, September 24, 2021 from 4-5 PM.

Body and Movement in Psychoanalysis Interest Group

The interest group on Body and Movement in Psychoanalysis will be resuming October 2021. This will be a group for analysts who have an interest in learning more about the interrelationship between the body and its movement in treatment, and about how both psychoanalysis and body/movement can enhance and inform each other.

The group will focus on a combination of theory and practice with readings and discussions from different somatic, embodied, developmental and intersubjective approaches and about the integration of emotional with somatic and nonverbal processes in the analytic practice.

In addition, group meetings will be interspersed with experiential and experimental studio sessions to directly explore and investigate somatic and movement processes in one’s own body.

Particular emphases will be on unformulated experiences, movement, and language, nonverbal processes, affect, trauma, attachment and developmental processes.

The meeting time will be Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00 in Dr. Birklein’s office. Please contact her to sign up.

Group meetings will be held in my office, 928 Broadway, Suite 1105 (21st Street), and in a studio at that same location.

This group will be limited to eight participants.
