When is the last time you felt heard or understood? Men and women alike seek counseling for a variety of reasons. Maybe you're unable to stay motivated at work, or your relationships keep falling apart, you might have experienced a loss or maybe you want to start building healthier habits. Individual counseling is an effective way to take a deeper look into what keeps you feeling stuck. You and your counselor will work one-on-one to develop a treatment plan to start working toward lasting change. Don't let our fast- paced society leave you feeling defeated and out of balance. Regain your sense of control and identity.

Relationships can be hard work. Whether you've just met your partner or you've been married for twenty years, couples counseling offers an in-depth, constructive way to approach your relationship. We work with couples who are preparing for marriage, couples who want to strengthen their relationship, others who are trying to save their marriage after an affair and everything in between. We have trained specialists on staff who utilize Prepare/Enrich and SYMBIS, programs which use evidence-based relationship inventories and skill-building exercises tailored specifically for you and your partner.

Rivertown Wellness is a private practice which doesn't take insurance directly. There are a number of benefits by not working directly with insurance companies, which you can find below. However, some insurance companies will reimburse a certain percentage for out-of-network counseling services and we are happy to provide the necessary form for you to submit. Additionally, you can use your HSA or FSA card for payment. If you're unsure of what options you have, give your insurance company a quick call and ask about "out-of-network" mental health providers.
Here are some questions you could ask your insurance company:
“Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?”
“What company manages my mental health benefits?”
“Is there an out-of-network deductible? What is it?”
“What percentage of the cost is covered once my deductible is met?:”
Perks to Paying Out-Of-Pocket
Confidentiality | You and your counselor are the only ones who will know the details of you and your therapy. Outside of legal limitations to confidentiality, nobody else has access to your chart, including insurance companies, their employees and anyone else involved in processing your claim.
Individuality | Most insurance companies require you to have a diagnosis. You may not need one! Although we are licensed to diagnose when needed, we also understand not everyone seeking counseling services warrants a diagnosis.
Flexibility | By using self-pay, you won't have any limits on what your therapy should look like. You have more influence on the focus, duration and frequency of therapy.
Responsibility | Research shows that clients who self-pay tend to yield more positive outcomes. If you're paying out-of-pocket, you have a bit more motivation and incentive to make the most of therapy.
