Do you accept insurance?
Bridget is not in network with any insurance companies. However, she can provide you with a receipt that you can submit for possible out of network coverage for therapy services. You are responsible for submitting necessary documentation to your insurance company. Please note that full payment is required at the end of your therapy session. You are responsible for full payment even if denied coverage by your insurance company. If you are looking for possible insurance coverage, it is recommended that you contact your insurance provider for more information. Below are some suggested questions to ask.
Do I have out of network benefits for mental or behavioral health?
What are the requirements for out of network benefits?
Is prior authorization or a referral from my PCP required?
Do I have an out of network deductible- is so, how much of the deductible has been met?
Is there a session limit?
*Please note that Bridget accepts major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. She also accepts cash, check, and HSA.
What happens in a typical session?
Each session is different depending on the needs of the client. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. I like to take the time to understand your goals for treatment and what you hope to get out of therapy. Together, we explore what meaningful therapy looks like to you. Usually therapy involves uncovering and and better understanding those challenges that detract from your mental health, as well as identifying and practicing ways to help you feel stronger. This may include supportive dialogue; identifying and rewriting unhelpful thought patterns using CBT techniques; EMDR to process painful memories that are impacting you today; or using guided imagery to notice, enhance, and absorb those strengths that already reside within you. I encourage all of my clients to take what we work on and use it during the week.
How many sessions will I need?
It is not possible to say for certain how many sessions you will need. It is all dependent on your presenting issue and the goals you have for treatment. Bridget is committed to using her expertise to facilitate the changes that are mutually agreed upon to be in your best interest, in the shortest possible time. However, therapy is generally not a quick fix. It has taken most people a lifetime to develop painful beliefs and behaviors. It takes committed work over a period of time to create change.
