How can CoreMHC help?

Trouble sleeping, difficulty with focus, problems with appetite, sadness, feelings of worry? Flashbacks or nightmares from a bad experience?  You or someone you love may be struggling with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or other mental health symptoms.  We believe these things can impact everyone, sometimes we all just need a “tune-up”.

Our Core Transformation will help you shift the way you think or help improve your environment to regain balance in your life.  

We want to help you!  

Do you take my insurance?  

We do not take insurance directly, however many clients can get reimbursed through their out of network benefits. Insurance companies typically require diagnosis and treatment updates to determine your eligibility. In order to protect your confidentiality and be in charge of your treatment, clients can choose to use our private pay option and discuss the private consultation time. You can pay using a health savings account and flexible spending account through your insurance company by accessing our services as your out of network benefits.  

The private consultation time can typically be reimbursed as an out of network benefit and sometimes even count toward reaching your deductible.  Each insurance policy is different, therefore it is important to understand your specific policy.  Receipts with service codes can be provided for you to submit for reimbursement.  

We recommend asking your insurance company “What is my reimbursement rate for out of network Mental Health benefits?” to find out what percentage you are covered and they will typically mail you the reimbursement directly.  

The challenging part is finding someone you want to begin to share your story with, once you have done that, it is determining what fee may be covered.  Please let your therapist know so they can print or email you the information you need at each session or on a monthly basis.

Do you have a sliding scale?  

No one will be turned away based on your inability to pay the full fee.  Our sliding scale forms are based on income. Please contact us directly for more information.

What types of therapy do you use?

Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) the foundations of our lives can change overtime.  This helps us to identify how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all connected.  Once we are able to see patterns that have been created, we can begin to make changes in our daily lives.  Certified trauma informed treatment can be a focus in treatment which includes Progressive Counting and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which improve symptoms of PTSD and trauma.  In this treatment model there is a focus on shifting thinking from past traumatic memories and aligning memories with more adaptive information processing.  At times we encounter a current situation that reminds us of the past that can make moving forward more difficult.  These are proven, researched based, step by step techniques which can alleviate symptoms and barriers in our daily life. Ask us for more detailed information on how this works!

Can I choose my therapist?

Absolutely! We recognize that each person is unique and each of our therapists have specialized talents. If you find someone that you’d like to work with, let us know. We do our best to set you up with your first appointment as soon as possible.

What if I can't make My in person consultation time?

There is no cost to cancel or reschedule an appointment as long as you do so 24 hours in advance. After that time, the full cost is due.  This is due to your 45 minute session time being allotted to only you. We feel time is very valuable!
