Do You Accept My Insurance?

Maximizing Your Flexibility and Care Quality:

At Rising Anchor Therapy, we prioritize the highest standards of care and ethical practice. This means we're not directly affiliated with insurance networks. However, we've streamlined a simple process to support your insurance reimbursement needs.

Superbill for Reimbursement:

For those with insurance coverage preferences, we offer a superbill. This means you can easily pay for your sessions upfront and then receive a form from us to claim back the costs from your insurance provider. This process is particularly compatible with PPO insurance plans.

Navigating Insurance Complexities:

We understand insurance can be tricky. That's why we encourage you to verify your out-of-network benefits with your provider. Our team is here to assist you in understanding these details, ensuring you can utilize your benefits effectively.

Utilizing FSA/HSA Funds:

Additionally, you have the option to use your FSA/HSA funds for therapy sessions, providing a flexible and convenient way to manage your mental health expenses.

Dedicated to Your Care:

At Rising Anchor Therapy, our focus is on delivering exceptional care with convenient payment solutions, ensuring you have access to the support you need in a way that works best for you.

Are You Going To Try And Trap Me In Therapy Forever?

Absolutely not. We're here to:

Cultivate Autonomy:

Our primary goal in group therapy is not to make therapy a permanent fixture in your life. Instead, we focus on empowering you to reach a point where you no longer depend on our sessions. Think of it as evolving from needing constant guidance to having the confidence and skills to manage on your own.

Deliver Therapy as a Skill-Building Journey:

We view therapy as a journey where you acquire essential life skills. Just as one learns to maintain and repair their own car, we provide you with the tools and knowledge to independently navigate life’s challenges.

Develop Self-Reliance:

Our  sessions are designed to arm you with skills and support networks that you can lean on outside of therapy. While therapists are often seen as mechanics for life’s troubles, we prefer to consider ourselves as instructors. We're here to teach you how to maintain and repair your own ‘vehicle’ of life.

Build Confidence and Competence:

The objective is for you to gain both the confidence and competence to handle future challenges independently. Rest assured, our group support and guidance are always available for those times when you might need a tune-up or extra help.
