Therapists In-Network with Blue Cross Blue Shield in Connecticut

Blue Cross Blue Shield is a common health insurance in Connecticut, and individuals who have Blue Cross Blue Shield may wish to find therapists who are in-network with their health insurance.

When you see a therapist who is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, each session you’ll pay only a copay, which typically ranges from $0-$75/session. Depending on your plan, you may first need to pay the provider’s full session fee until you meet your annual deductible, which is the total amount of medical expenses required before your health insurance starts to cover costs. Some plans cover the cost of in-network therapy sessions before the deductible is met; to verify whether your specific plan covers therapy sessions and at what rate, visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield website or call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask about your coverage for outpatient mental health.

Thank you for visiting my profile.  If you are looking to work with me, you are ready to roll up your sleeves and be ready for me to help you learn new skills and try new, perhaps scary, things.  Therapy is hard work. It involves going into the outside world and trying new, often scary things, whether that may be with our partners, families, or even ourselves. It's often by taking ourselves out of our comfort zone, and breaking up those same old patterns that are not working for us, that we truly begin to see change.  Working with me means that we are in this together, and I look forward to going on this journey with you.

Therapy is most productive when the relationship between client and therapist allows for honesty and a feeling of safety.  The time with your therapist should allow you to be yourself - able to express your thoughts and feelings without concern of judgment.  I look forward to learning more about what's important to you and how I can work with you to help you meet your goals.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." -Helen Keller---- Working together to find solutions that best work for you is one of the most important parts of the way I practice. You are the expert of your life, your wants, and your needs.

I take pride in being genuine in my practice & offering my empathy & eagerness to support you in achieving your personal goals.
I believe that every person is capable in achieving their goals & understanding what is best for themselves.

Asking for help to get clarity in how to move forward takes true strength, & by taking the step, you are already making progress toward success.
