University Elite is dedicated to establishing a higher standard for mental health care. Our doctors must live up to the University Elite standard in their training & certifications, as well as in their actual practice.

“There’s a lot of therapy and psychiatry out there… And if you look hard enough, some of it is good.”

Dr. Hans Watson

Many therapists are unable to accomplish the difficult task of conceptualizing how an individual’s upbringing, current situation and future outlook contribute to their current symptoms.  The average therapist often becomes overwhelmed and reverts to a rigid “one size fits all” therapy protocol that generally won’t address the causes of your symptoms.  This leaves the therapist and patient both feeling frustrated, suffering about a hopeless future. 

University Elite Psychologists generally don’t have this problem. Our therapists have the skills necessary to incorporate all those details when understanding your individual situation.  With that understanding, they always tailor an individualized therapy approach that is designed to personally help you.  This individualized focus is one reason our patients often see lasting improvement and real change.

What Makes Us Special?


University Elite is focused equally on patient education and treatment options. Instead of simply “throwing a med at the symptoms,” we focus on understanding the “why” behind your specific situation and symptoms. Then we take the necessary time to help our patients understand “the why.” This is the reason that our patients are equal partners in choosing their treatment approach.




Our Insurance Policy


Please note that to provide personalized service and full confidentiality, University Elite does not contract with any insurance providers. All services are paid for in full by the client when reserving each session. 

If requested, your doctor will be happy to provide you with a reimbursement form or “superbill” which you can present to your insurance provider in order to seek partial reimbursement for psychiatric or psychotherapeutic services rendered.


Insurance Policy…


…If you plan to use insurance benefits, it is recommended that you check with your insurance provider prior to your first appointment to understand the full details of your out-of-network mental health benefits. University Elite Doctors are considered “out-of-network” providers for insurance plans. These plans vary widely and typically reimburse patients anywhere from 25% to 90% of the total cost of each session. You may want to ask your insurance carrier to what extent they reimburse for psychiatric services by an out-of-network doctor.
