Do you Take Insurance?

  • Tonya Torres is a contracted Provider for
  • For clients that wish to use insurance please have your insurance card handy during your free consultation by phone. Our provider will ask you for your Member ID and DOB at this time to verify eligibility and coverage. 
  • To help make therapy accessible, we work with most PPO insurance plans on an “out-of-network” basis. This means that the client would pay for services directly when the service is rendered and we would provide a super bill to submit to your insurance company to receive a reimbursement check for a percentage of your out of pocket costs. 
  • Mind Garden Counseling Collective has begun to accept some in-network insurance. However, we find there are many benefits to not using or involving insurance companies. First, there is a greater level of privacy and control over your treatment when insurance is not used. Moreover, when therapy sessions are billed through insurance they require detailed documentation about your mental health and we are forced to make a diagnosis. Often insurance will only cover a set amount of session depending on the diagnosis/coverage and determination is not the individuals presentation. Insurance often restrict the type of therapeutic techniques that can be used during treatment reducing the ability to make treatment individualized to each person.

What are the steps to figuring out if Mind Garden is a good fit?

  • If we are accepting new clients, we offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. During this consult we will learn a little bit more about what is bringing you or your loved one in for counseling at this time. We will discuss the presenting problem and hopes for treatment. Through this conversation we will determine if it feels like a good fit for all parties.​
