DEEP STRUCTURE PSYCHOTHERAPY CLINIC
The Rochester DSP Clinic is housed in the historic Strong Hall building at 1100 South Goodman Street in Rochester, NY. You can get directions on Google Maps. The building is easily accessed from across Rochester and the surrounding areas, and has a very interesting history and is set in beautiful grounds. It is on the campus that was previously the site of the former Colgate Divinity School, and so it is important to be aware that some maps, GPS, and signage may not yet have been updated. Please also note that both the campus generally, and the Rochester DSP Clinic itself, are not affliated with the Divinity School in any way.
When you arrive at Strong Hall, you will either drive or walk up to the main entrance (pictured) from South Goodman Street. There is a large parking lot, which is free. At the main door, select the option on the keypad for the clinician you are here to see (e.g., Oliver Boxell). The door will then open for you.
Typically, you will be able to go straight into your session. Occasionally, if you happen to arrive a little early and the previous session is still finishing up for example, you may be asked to wait in the waiting area for a few minutes. This can be avoided altogether with careful scheduling. Finally, note that the clinic is accessible via both elevator and staircase.
Counseling in rochester, ny
Unlike many other approaches to psychotherapy, DSP does not ask you to complete any "homework" between sessions. However, we will provide you with some cutting-edge technology to use free-of-charge. You will be asked to view a very short two-minute "stimulus set" on a computer, cell phone, or tablet once each day, right before you go to bed. The "stimulus set" will just be a set of statements and pictures. Your counselor will provide you with a personalized stimulus set to watch, and the idea behind this is to maintain the deep structural re-organization processes between the in-person sessions.
DSP works with unconscious information structures, and so we need to measure how these are changing over time. The data we collect helps us to track your progress toward your goals, and to make decisions about how your treatment should proceed. As such, you will be asked to complete a small online survey each week, at some point in the 24 hour period prior to your in-person session. In addition, we will ask your permission to add your data to a large sample of anonymous data that we can use to assess the overall effectiveness of DSP in ongoing research on the techniques. You are under no obligation to agree to this at all, but it is a great opportunity to contribute to some innovative science. Your data will be fully de-identified at all times because an encryption system is used for it, meaning that it is always completely anonymous and your confidentiality is fully protected. The weekly survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

In common with most small practices that do not have a billing department, we regrettably do not have the resources to bill insurance plans directly. However, insurers will often reimburse patients for the cost of attending counseling as an out-of-network service. You would need to contact your insurance provider directly to make arrangements for this. In addition, note that we are able to accept HSA and FSA cards as a form of payment.
