FLOURISH COUNSELING FAQs
+Are you licensed?
Yes! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) licensed by the Kentucky Board of Social Work. My license number is 254180.
+Do you take insurance?
Currently, I am a preferred provider with Anthem Commercial and Kentucky Medicaid + their MCO's: Aetna Better Health of KY, Anthem, + WellCare.
+How much do you charge for a session and how can I pay?
If you do not want to use insurance, or I am out of network with your coverage, you can opt-out of utilizing insurance and choose a private pay option instead. Individual private pay sessions begin at $100 for a 50-60 minute session. Private payment is accepted at the time of your session in the form of cash, check, debit card, credit card, or HSA card. For out of network coverage, a superbill can also be provided, at your request, to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please contact your insurance to verify how much of your visit is covered. Most insurance providers will cover between 20% - 80% of session costs for out of network providers.
+Do you offer telehealth (video) services?
During Covid-19 most insurance plans in Kentucky are covering telehealth to encourage it's use. I am more than happy to set up a telehealth session and provide a link to a HIPAA compliant video chat room for your sessions.
Please contact your insurance to discuss coverage for these services, as they may not be offered as a covered session after August 1, 2020.
+What can I expect at my first appointment?
You can expect to sign the necessary consents for me to provide you therapeutic services. I will also spend much of the session gathering information to further support you, exploring your current symptoms, as well as personal history, family history, and working to find coping skills that are effective with your symptoms.
+How long does therapy last?
In order for therapy to be successful, most often sessions should begin on a weekly basis. We’ll get to know each other first and then work on finding coping skills that are effective in relieving some of your symptoms. After that, it’s possible to meet less frequently as agreed upon. When you have met your treatment goals, then we will discuss closing your file with me.
