Shawnn will make sure you understand your payment responsibility for any services at Inspire. Shawnn is our billing QUEEN! She has more than 30 years’ experience in medical billing. Please know, she always does her best. However, that doesn’t mean that the information she’s given from insurance companies is always accurate. Verification is given as a courtesy, but there are times when insurance representatives misquote benefits.
It’s important to know that if your insurance does not pay for services, you are responsible for the full contracted rate. You may also call your insurance company to check your benefits by calling the number on the back of the insurance card. You must have a valid credit card on file at all times to receive services. All billing policies and information can be found by clicking this link to our Rates & Insurances page.
Golden Rule on billing? When in doubt, just reach out!! Shawnn will take GOOD CARE OF YOU!!

What will the counseling process be like?
Our counseling process is designed to empower you to overcome whatever is holding you back from living your best, happiest life. Our therapists are kind, gentle, honest and safe. They will empower you with tools and skills tailored to support you. We’re flexible on scheduling. You’re free to come and go, as you need. Think of Inspire as a nest. You’re like a bird that we want to see fly! You can come and rest and rejuvenate and fly free, whenever you like.

What will the first session be like?
The first session lasts approximately 60 minutes. You’ll have paperwork to complete virtually before your session. The therapist will spend time introducing themselves and getting to know you, your story and your dreams. At the end, you’ll have the option to schedule your next session, based upon your availability and goals. There is no pressure to book another session. We’re here for you to come and go as you need.
FOR MINORS UNDER 18: If the session is for a child or teen under 18, we ask that a parent (or guardian) attend the first session for the first 10-15 minutes. The parent will be able to meet the therapist and help make the child feel comfortable. PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you share any concerns about your child with the therapist or Intake Team prior to the session— not in front of your child in the session. This is to protect your child, and foster a positive start to therapy. Think about it, would you want your parent or guardian listing all your issues or struggles in front of someone? Yeah, us neither. 🙂 During the session, the therapist will ask you 2 questions. “Why is your child amazing?” and “What would you like to see as a result of the counseling process for your child?” These questions are scientifically designed to help foster confidence and create a positive start to the therapy experience for your child.
What will all other sessions be like?
The second session is our unique formula for goal-setting. In this session, your therapist will help you connect and understand what your heart really wants in this life. The remainder of the sessions will then be working on skills to tackle any obstacles in the way of you living your best life. In order to see lasting results, a commitment to at least 8 weekly sessions is recommended. However, we are flexible and can work with you to accommodate your schedule and goals.
FOR MINORS UNDER 18: Parents will not be required to attend the sessions, but must be available for the last 10 minutes of the session in case the therapist would like to touch base with you or for any scheduling changes.
How much does therapy cost?
Counseling is a fee-for-service program. Inspire accepts insurance and offers in-network and out-of-network benefits. We are in-network with BCBS PPO, Humana, Aetna, and UnitedBehaviorHealthcare. We recommend at least an 8-week commitment to begin seeing lasting results.
