That depends on the counselor so it’s best to ask them individually. We understand that counseling can cost a lot of money and that insurance can be very helpful. At the same time, some insurance companies can be very intrusive in the counseling process, controlling what is done and the approach used. In addition, it is common for insurance companies to want a clinical diagnosis that will stay with them forever. Many people don’t want that kind of information about them documented. Finally, many insurance companies will work with you and will reimburse you for a part of your payment. We at Redwood Counseling Services will do all we can to provide you with the paperwork needed to aid you in your reimbursement process.
