About Me

Hi, I'm Jennifer Benoit, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

E
ven with all the wisdom passed from other moms and books on becoming a parent, nothing prepared me for the emotional and mental shifts that took place the moment my baby was outside of my body. I didn't recognize myself and I didn't have the language to describe the range of emotions I was experiencing. 

Over time, I used healthy cop
ing skills and the right support to help me navigate my motherhood journey. In addition to my personal journey, I've provided therapy to mothers experiencing perinatal and postpartum depression through a specialized curriculum known as
Moving Beyond Depression.  I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-focused therapy, Trauma-focused CBT and certified as a Life Coach. I am also certified through Postpartum Support International. 

Individual Therapy (one on one) 

                 In addition to private pay, Cigna, Aetna, United Healthcare, Oxford, and Optum insurance are accepted.

FAQ's

What if I don't have insurance? Can I still receive services?

Yes! We accept private pay through credit card payments. 

Do I pay per session?

Yes, sessions are billed per hour. If you opt to pay for a package deal of 8 sessions at a time, you will receive a discount. 

Even if you don't take my insurance, can I use my insurance benefits for therapy?

Possibly! Some insurance plans include “out-of-network mental health benefits” - which means even if you see a therapist who is not on their list of approved “in-network” providers, you may be eligible for some reimbursement of session fees. It depends on the specific benefits of your insurance plan.

 

We encourage you to follow up with your insurance plan if you are unsure about what is covered. Usually, there is a phone number on the back of your insurance card that you can call to speak with an insurance representative or a website where you can access your plan information.

Here are some questions that we encourage you to ask:

-Do I have “out of network mental health benefits”?

-If so, how much or what percentage of session fees are covered?

-How do I submit claims in order to receive reimbursement? How long does it take to receive a reimbursement check?

-Is there a session limit, deductible, or pre-authorization required?

Those who have “out of network mental health benefits” are usually asked to submit invoices from attended therapy sessions that include a CPT/service code and a diagnostic code. Our invoices (called “superbills” ) will always include this information.
