Patient Services


A typical client starts with a free consultation either in person or virtually, after which Dr. Dodson will share initial impressions and thoughts about what your treatment plan will look like.

Treatment usually consists of detailed discussions about challenges you experience in daily life, and your goals will be developed based on these challenges. We’ll work together to generate strategies and solutions to address them and you’ll apply these solutions in the real world. Occasionally, you will be asked to complete some short assessments to better track your progress.

A traditional treatment plan consists of the free consultation and then visits once a week (in person and/or virtual) for 2-4 months, followed by several months of visits every two weeks and occasional “check-in” sessions moving forward. However, please remember treatment plans are directed and driven by a client’s progress towards their goals, which can be variable.

Dr. Dodson provides a free consultation to all clients, either in person or virtually. At that consultation, you’ll discuss your challenges and learn more about what Braintrust can do for you.

After the consultation, therapy services are billed at an hourly rate on a sliding scale to accommodate a variety of life situations. Braintrust does not currently accept insurance.

Braintrust also has a supported services model for combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. A percentage of the proceeds from each hour of civilian therapy services is donated by Braintrust to help subsidize a veteran’s treatment.
