Your insurance might pay a portion of your fee for counseling sessions, using your mental health benefits. You might also have Employee Assistance or Member Assistance benefits that provide a few sessions at no cost to you. Call the number on the back of your card to verify your specific benefits.
Insurance accepted: Most forms of Aetna, Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Coventry/GHP, HealthLink, Magellan, United Healthcare, Value Options, ComPsych EAP, H&H EAP. We will verify whether I am in-network for your specific plan, as these can vary within the same insurance provider.

Discount available when you prepay for three sessions out-of-pocket. Not available for use with insurance benefits.
Note: One primary difference between counseling and coaching is insurance reimbursement. If you plan to use insurance benefits, they are processed through the mental health section of your plan. Your counselor will assign a diagnosis (as minimal as possible) to use the medical insurance plan, since the purpose of counseling is to provide treatment to relieve a named condition (e.g. anxiety, depression). Life Coaching cannot be reimbursed by medical insurance, because the Coach and client are working together to enhance performance or get past a blind spot, not to relieve a specific condition.
