I am not contracted directly with any insurance companies but can provide you with a superbill that you can submit for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider if you have a PPO. They usually reimburse 40-60% of the cost within 30-45 days.
EAP (Employment Assistance Programs):
I am contracted to work with BHS, Modern Health, Empathia and All Health One Networks.
EAPs offer employees 3-18 sessions at no cost, and additional sessions can be requested. It is confidential. Contact your your company's HR rep or EAP directly and they will connect you to a therapist.
My therapeutic work and doctoral dissertation draws from discursive-relational theory. This is an approach that uses social constructionism, assemblage theory and critical discursive psychology to deconstruct and collaboratively evaluate the scripts, messages, language and meanings that are at work on one's sense of identity.
