Overall, teens will learn how to feel better about their relationships with others, and with themselves.

What is the Investment?

All New Clients must complete a Parent Phone Screening (15min - free) and a Face-to-Face New Client Assessment (45-60min - $150) prior to being admitted to group. Group will run for 60-min each week and cost $50/session. For those committed to a Full Term of group (Three Months or approximately 12 sessions), they will be able to enroll in monthly autopay at a cost of $175 per month (approximately $25 savings per month).

PS- A quick note about insurance and diagnosis
Teen Girls Therapy Group is meant to be a psycho-educational group and will not require a mental health diagnosis as outlined by the American Psychiatric Association. However, if clients wish to use their insurance's out-of-network benefits for reimbursement, a mental health diagnosis will be required for that process.

I do not accept payment from insurance directly but am able to assist Parents in submitting appropriate documentation for possible reimbursement by either providing an Insurance Super Bill they can mail to their insurance or submitting this information electronically on their behalf at no extra cost. Clients are responsible for checking their insurance eligibility for out-of-network benefits and seeing if they qualify for reimbursement of group sessions.

You can also use Better - an app that helps patients who pay out-of-pocket to get reimbursed by their health insurance. After each visit, simply submit the superbill you receive via the Better app. They work with your insurance to get you reimbursed.
