Weekly therapy sessions are provided to help you find better balance and strength dealing with healing the past, getting to know who you really are, constructing your path to health and wellness, increasing self-esteem, developing social skills, creating healthy boundaries, healing from break-ups, choosing healthy relationships, maintaining relationships and living a life you love.
Family therapy is available for a wide range of issues which may include: parenting skills, high conflict families, communication skills, separation and divorce, blended families, and more. I often work with various members of the family both individually and in groups to most affectively treat the entire family system
Sessions are available for both pre-marital and couples counseling to build communication skills as well as mutual understanding, respect and trust.

INSURANCE: IN-NETWORK & OUT-OF-NETWORK BENEFITS EXPLAINED
***Nicole French is considered an Out-Of-Network provider for Blue Cross & Blue Shield nationally. Clients will be responsible for the full fee at the time services are rendered and can be provided a monthly superbill with dates of services, fees and appropriate medical codes needed for you to submit your insurance claims.***
Nicole is not in network for any other major insurance providers. Clients should expect to pay for sessions in full and are provided a monthly invoice with dates of service, fees and the proper medical codes needed for you to submit your insurance claims.
If you choose to use an insurance that Nicole is not currently in-network with, you will submit the invoice to your insurance company in order to be reimbursed a portion of the session fee. The amount you receive is different for each provider and individual plan. If you want to know exactly what amount you would expect to be reimbursed, you would call your customer service for your insurance provider. All policies, rates, and deductibles are different.
Questions to ask your Insurance Provider:
1. What are my “out-of-network, outpatient, mental health benefits” when seeing a licensed
mental health counselor?
2. Do I need a referral from my primary care provider (PCP) to receive mental health services?
3. Do I have a deductible, coinsurance, or copay?
4. Have I met my deductible this year? When does my deductible restart?
5. Does pre-authorization apply? (Meaning: does the insurance company have to approve the treatment prior to starting therapy?)
6. How do I file out-of-network claims?
