Insurance and Fees


We provide affordable and insurance-friendly counseling services. Our intake specialist can quickly verify your insurance plan benefits. Let us handle the paperwork so that you can quickly get started with your therapist at your first session. 


We are in-network with Blue Cross and Blue Shield PPO, Anthem, Blue Choice PPO, Aetna, United Healthcare/Optum and Cigna/Evernorth plans. If you decide to use insurance benefits, we will file the appropriate claims for service on your behalf for these plans. 


If you carry an insurance plan not listed above, we may be out-of-network. In these cases, we charge our self-pay rate and can provide you with a Professional Receipt of Services or 'Superbill' to seek reimbursement from your insurance provider directly. 

If you plan to use insurance benefits and would like to confirm your benefits yourself, we recommend contacting the member services number on the back of your insurance card. Be sure to ask about your deductible, copay or co-insurance and any limitation on the number of sessions.​ Also confirm if your benefits administrator is a third party.
