Brightside offers telehealth sessions
I take insurances such as Independent Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Fidelis, Univera, Aetna, Medicare, Tricare, and other insurances. We also participate with many employee assistance programs (EAPs) to provide counseling sessions. You don't have to go through this alone.
"To help you to be the best you can be" by:
- Reaching healthy emotional, spiritual and physical balance
- Finding solutions/alternate strategies to cope with life stressors
Counseling Services are available to help de-stress, lower anxiety and treat depressive symptoms. Your satisfaction with Brightside Counseling Services is important to us. If your insurance deductibles are so high you are not able to follow up with counseling, talk with our staff about possible alternatives. Serving Genesee, Erie, and Niagara Counties.
