James Fitzgerald Therapy, PLLC

James Fitzgerald, MS, NCC, AAP

VT Rostered Psychotherapist

Hello, I am not accepting new clients for therapy at this time. Please contact me because I am maintaining a waitlist. I am meeting with clients both in-person and virtually. I am a rostered pre-licensed psychotherapist in private practice, conducting work with my clients under clinical supervision.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I teach and adhere to an integrated health and wellness practice that addresses all the domains of a person’s existence:

  • physical/nutritional
  • social/community
  • emotional/psychological
  • gender/sex/intimacy
  • organizational/occupational/financial
  • cultural/political
  • relationships/friendships
  • family of origin/family dynamics
  • spiritual/shadow
  • intellectual/mental
  • leisure/recreational
  • environmental.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The way I practice therapy is focused on the client, allowing them to lead the way while I take on the role of a guide and confidant. Think of yourself as the captain of your ship (internal system), setting a course and speed, while I am in the role of your navigator. I believe that a person’s strengths and character can drive healthy ways of thinking, feeling, relating, and being. I believe that the individual can find solutions to problems and challenges given the right environment to explore their strengths and skills.

I believe that relationships, experiences, and events, can have lasting effects on a person’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health and wellbeing. I believe that a person’s environment, culture, religion, and community has a profound influence on personality development. I practice therapy from a humanistic and existential theoretical orientation.

I focus on what people do right for their health and wellness, rather than focusing on what is “wrong with them.” My goal is not to “fix” people, instead I work with them to discover the best approach that “fits” them. I believe in a holistic approach to improving health and wellness, including integrated work on the mind, body, spirit, and shadow.

Important Health Insurance Information

I accept the following health insurances: Blue Cross Blue Shield; Cigna; MVP; and Medicaid. I bill insurance companies for therapy through an online portal called My Clients Plus. I also send clients copies of their invoices and statements. You may receive an invoice through Jituzu. Your invoices and statements will be identified with my supervisor, Caroline O’Connor and her company Inner Resources. Payment of your outstanding balance is due before the next scheduled appointment unless other arrangements are made. Please verify your insurance benefits before your first session. If you are checking to see if I am covered in-network on your plan, I am listed under Caroline O’Connor, LCMHC. You  have a right to request an estimate of the cost of my services, as guaranteed by the “No Surprises Act.”

Talk to your Insurance Provider

Before the first session, ask your insurance provider these questions: Does my plan cover outpatient mental health care services? Do I have a deductible I am responsible for paying? How much is my deductible and how much have I met? Do I have a co-pay or co-insurance I am responsible for paying? How much is the co-pay or co-insurance amount? Does therapy require prior authorization? Does it need a referral from your primary care provider?

Payment Types:

I accept cash or check; American Express; Mastercard; Visa; HSA/FSA; Venmo; Square/PayPal; and Zelle
