Zoom/Video therapy, In-person therapyBriefly describe the reasons you decided to seek help: Grief: lost a child to stillbirthDoes the therapist take insurance, and if not, how has your experience been with filing claims? I know she takes BCBC and is fairly expensive if not covered by insuranceReview: I lost a child to stillbirth in 2018 and sought out someone who specializes in grief, pregnancy loss, etc. It was immensely helpful to see someone who specialized in that area. I saw Dr. Manzella about every other week for a year and I'm so glad I did. It was the hardest year of my life and something that really could have festered if I'd not taken steps to work through it. I still see her off and on for ongoing "check-ins" and it's nice to have a therapist who knows all the backstory, even if I'm no longer in the midst of fresh grief.
