You are welcome to submit your insurance for use when making an appointment for individual therapy.

If you or your spouse are currently taking prescription medication to treat anxiety or mood related issues, individual therapy is customarily deemed medically necessary by health insurance companies, but there is no guarantee-every policy is different.

After you've completed sufficient individual sessions, and you've been cooperative with attendance and strategies for improvements, family therapy may be indicated.

You may be referred to a licensed marriage and family therapist at that point.

Sometimes our office will include your partner in sessions if it will help to alleviate symptoms.

This is not the same as couples coaching, which is our highly recommended educational program, based on scientific principles, and requires both partners to be present from start to finish.

Couples coaching is designed to help couples resolve differences and regain happy relationships.

Individual counseling is designed to help individuals live happier and more functional lives and reduce or eliminate troublesome mental health symptoms.


Insurance will not reimburse couples coaching or other relationship-centered programs. It is unlawful to attempt to use your medical insurance to pay for anything that is not medically necessary.

It's recommended that you go ahead and start as long as it's safe for you to do so (ie; your partner isn't physically abusive/you could attend without endangering yourself)
