  • Do you accept Insurance?
    Cultivate Wellness works as an "Out of Network" provider, thus we do not bill insurance carriers directly. While we are not in-network with any insurance panels, many insurance plans provide out-of-network mental health coverage. For our clients that wish to use their insurance and have out-of-network coverage, we provide monthly statements ("Superbills") that they can submit to their insurance companies for partial reimbursement. If you are interested in using your insurance to cover a portion of the session fee, we recommend reaching out to your insurance company and asking them if they cover out-of-network mental health services, and if so, at what rate they reimburse. It is also helpful to know if you have a deductible that you have to meet before your insurance company will provide reimbursement. Additionally, if you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you may often use this to help pay for your mental health services.
  • How long are sessions?
    Our sessions are 50 minutes in length. If clients are interested in or would benefit from a longer session, we are also able to provide services in 75-minute or 90-minute increments. The cost of these sessions is prorated based on the cost of a 50-minute session.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    Our clinicians customize therapy to each individual client, and therefore we can’t predict how many sessions it will take for each client to achieve their goals. We will work with you at your pace, and our hope is to help you reach your goals and to reap the benefits of therapy as quickly as possible.
  • How often are sessions scheduled?
    In order to provide effective therapy, we ask our clients to attend sessions weekly at the start of therapy. Once clients have made progress and have met their goals, we may discuss reducing the frequency of sessions.
