How It Works


15-Minute Intake Call

​Schedule a 15-minute intake call with one of Banister's licensed mental health professionals. During this call you will share criteria including insurance carrier, preferred day/time/location, in-person or tele-health format, and your history with the relevant type of health care. This time will also be used to verify any known goals, to educate you on provider specialties, and to explore what you most value in a therapeutic relationship.


Research & Verification

Banister will begin to research and directly contact potential providers on your behalf via email/phone to verify payment and availability criteria, along for screening for the providers’ training and comfort in assisting with your identified issues and goals.



Banister will send you a list of 3-5 providers who meet the discussed criteria for you to consider and contact directly for an initial consultation. This consultation is an opportunity for you to determine which provider may be the best fit for you.

Please note that after you schedule and complete the initial call, it may take up to 1-2 weeks for Banister to complete the search.
