Albany Lifeworks Center is unique in that each practitioner operates as a separate entity.  There is no central receptionist and therapists respond to all inquiries personally within 24 hours.  Fee schedules are specific to each clinician.  Some providers accept health insurance, and some have sliding scale fees.
