Insurance for Counseling Sessions
We will be happy to provide you with a receipt with the necessary documentation for you to file to your insurance company for possible reimbursement as an out-of-network provider. Please inquire about insurance and payment options when you schedule your appointment with your therapist.
We have a 24-hour cancellation policy for all appointments. We do understand that on occasion there may be extenuating circumstances; it is up to the discretion of the individual practitioner if they wish to waive the cancellation fee the first time an appointment is not cancelled/rescheduled within 24-hours. We’re happy to help accommodate you to the best of our ability.
If a client does not show up for a scheduled therapy appointment, and has not notified us by phone or email, the client will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Less than a 24-hour notice effects consistency of patient care and creates inefficient scheduling for our practitioners. Please contact the therapist directly for all appointment changes or cancellations. Contact information for each staff member can be found on the Associates page.
Classes & Workshops
Fees for classes and workshops vary and the prices are included with the description on the Classes and Workshops pages. Please inquire about the policy for classes or workshops with the instructor at time of enrollment.
Insight Wellness & Counseling
Who We Are
Insight Wellness & Counseling is a counseling center in Sarasota, Florida that provides traditional talk therapy along with other wellness approaches. We are focused on helping our clients achieve optimal living. This includes helping clients function at their highest level in areas of relationships, health, career, and mental well-being. We firmly believe in the inseparable connection between the mind, body and spirit. We recognize that our physical health is influenced by our thoughts and feelings, and that our psychological health is affected by our bodily condition and our behaviors. We embrace a practice that treats the whole person.
Along with Mental Health Counseling we offer Health & Wellness Counseling, as well as, referrals for Nutrition, Psychiatry, Acupuncture, and other wellness services. We also offer the option of a physical activity therapy session; it is a perfect blend of talk therapy and a physical activity such as walking, yoga, or weight training. Each of our associates is uniquely trained to treat a variety of concerns and disorders; specific details on specialties are included in the associates' profiles, which you will find on their individual pages.
We are accepting clients in person as well as offering the option of video or phone sessions. Our therapists are taking safe distance and sanitizing precautions. Masks are recommended based upon CDC guidelines for our area. We are doing everything possible to continue serving our clientele while placing an emphasis on the safety of staff and clients. Please let your therapist know if you would prefer a phone session or a video session through Doxy.me, which is a HIPPA compliant platform.
