Mental Health Counselor Associate

About Andrea as a Therapist

Andrea recognizes that taking that first step to engage in Therapy can be a challenging one and she provides warmth and a welcoming presence to those who walk through the door. Andrea considers it an honor to be allowed into the intimate part of her Clients lives and she meets each Client where they are at with acceptance. She believes that being able to walk with someone through the hard things can be therapeutic in and of itself. Meanwhile, she uses an eclectic approach, one that is very person centered and strength based, utilizing tools such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Andrea has experience in working with trauma, from what one might consider “small” traumas to “bigger” traumas. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and loves to utilize this tool to help her Clients process and recover from traumas they have experienced.

Andrea is an out-of-network provider and is able to provide superbills (“therapy receipts”) to any client who wishes to use his/her out-of-network benefits.

When exploring your out-of-network benefits, you may want to ask your insurance carrier about the policy/coverage for an out-of-network provider, deductible, rate of reimbursement, number of sessions authorized per year, process for obtaining reimbursement, and if prior-authorization is required.

Electing to pay completely out of pocket allows you the most privacy and control of your treatment. Your records remain free from any audit or compliance check. You maintain the most flexibility and control in deciding the session frequency, longevity, content, and interventions. Insurances are not informed of any applicable mental health diagnosis.

Your reasons for seeking counseling probably include much personal information about your life, work, marriage, kids, and mental health issues. Private pay providers are better able to protect your health information with the greatest degree of privacy.
