Currently, Dr. Anderson is an in-network provider for the following insurance companies: United Healthcare/Optum, United EAP, Cigna, Cigna EAP, Aetna, Tricare, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), BCBS EAP, Medicare, Medicaid, Peachcare, Magellan, and ComPsych. For all other insurance companies, Dr. Anderson is considered an out-of-network provider. However, most insurance companies typically provide some level of reimbursement for therapy services. To find out more regarding reimbursement for out-of-network providers, please contact your health insurance company to see how their out-of-network reimbursement structure works for mental health and psychotherapy services. Once you have paid for your therapy session, and at your request, Dr. Anderson can provide you with the necessary documentation to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Health care savings/flexible spending accounts (FSA/HSA) can often also be used to pay for mental health and therapy services. Again, at your request, Dr. Anderson can provide you with a receipt to submit to your flex spending account.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy (also known as psychotherapy) can be beneficial to anyone desiring positive change or increased understanding, insight, and awareness in his/her life, with the overarching goal of increasing factors such as overall well-being and quality of life. Therapy provides a safe place where you can be honest about your struggles and gain feedback from an objective and expert perspective focused on alternative solutions (many backed by years of research) to problems that you may struggle to cope with by yourself.
Therapy is not just a matter of "talking about your problems" or "venting," but rather, it is about working toward solutions that will have lasting positive effects in your life. For example, therapy can help you:
- Understand your struggles
- Define and reach life goals
- Develop coping skills to better manage your stress
- Make sense of past traumatic or childhood experiences
- Identify triggers that may worsen or maintain your symptoms
- Improve your self-esteem and relationships with family and friends
- Develop a dependable, stable, and productive routine
- Gain insight and awareness about your personality strengths and weaknesses
- Understand why certain things bother you and what you can do to reduce these struggles
- Become "unstuck" in patterns, both personally and socially, that do not yield positive outcomes
- Overcome your fears, anxieties, and worries about the future
- Feel happier and more satisfied in life
- Find healing after grieving
