Insurance? We truly want you to have the very experience in every way. Understanding payment and insurance can be confusing. Our practice helps with insurance and payment as much as possible. Our counselors are in-network for several insurance panels. If your insurance plan considers us “out of network” they may still reimburse most of our fee. In that event, we provide you with the right paperwork to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. We can help you with any questions that you may have to make the payment and insurance process easy and straightforward.
