Therapy for College Students and Young Adults

College-age people face so many transitions, shifts in responsibility, life adjustments, and big decisions. No wonder it is a common life stage to feel overwhelmed. Often when we feel this way, discovering who we are on a deep level can ease our anxieties and lead to a sense of rootedness and peace. Identifying our passions and values is often easier said than done, and can be both exciting and really, really hard. It usually requires us to re-evaluate what we once held true and potentially face the disappointment of not meeting others’ expectations of us. This challenging work can also be so rewarding and enable us to feel confident that our decisions are building a life that feels congruent with our truest sense of self. While identity development is an ongoing process throughout the lifespan, adolescence and young adulthood is a great time to dig into this work.

Rachel is an out-of-network provider not directly contracted with insurance companies. The majority of clients who have private insurance are eligible to be reimbursed for a significant portion of their fees for services. A Superbill, in other words a receipt of services that contains all of the information needed to submit to insurance for reimbursement, can be provided upon request. 


To determine if your insurance provider offers out-of-network coverage reimbursement call your member services line (usually listed on the back of your insurance card) and ask:

  • What are my mental health insurance benefits?

  • Does my plan cover services to out-­of­-network mental health providers?

  • What is my out-of-network deductible?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session for an out-of-network provider?

  • How many sessions does my plan cover in a year? How many sessions do I have left?

  • Do I need pre­-authorization or a referral from my PCP to see a therapist?

  • How much time do I have to file a claim for out-­of­-network services?

  • What is the process to get reimbursed for out­-of-­network services?


Helpful Tip: many insurance companies have smartphone member apps that allow you to take a picture of your superbill and submit for reimbursement within just a few seconds online.
