A Note About Insurance


We are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO. For BCBS, we will file a claim for you and you will pay your copay at the time of your visit. If you have other insurance, it is likely that you have some out-of-network benefits available, and we invite you to call your insurance company about that. You will need to pay in full at the time of your session and submit receipts for reimbursement by your insurance company.


We are happy to provide you with a detailed receipt to help you seek reimbursement from your insurance company. You may want to call them to ask if your plan has “out-of-network mental health benefits” and get details about your benefits. In addition, you must qualify for a mental health diagnosis in order to have insurance reimburse you for treatment. Insurance generally does not cover relationship/marriage counseling. If this arrangement does not work for you, we are happy to help you find another provider who is on your insurance provider panel.
