Health Insurance

Panahi Counseling is devoted to helping you with your insurance needs. It is possible that your counseling sessions may be covered in whole or part by your insurance. Please contact your insurance provider for more information about your behavioral health benefits.

Alternatively, our insurance experts can contact your insurance company on your behalf, making the process seamless.
