I've been working as a Board Certified Psychiatrist for over 15 years, and throughout that time I've been most interested in working with individuals who struggle with addiction or co-occurring illnesses. I am able to provide my clients with outpatient detoxification from alcohol and opioids as long as safety criteria are met. Evidence shows people are most likely to achieve recovery through a combination of medications and counseling. When you come to Elevate, you can have all of your needs met under one roof: Medication Management, Outpatient Detox, Individual Therapy, Group Therapy and IOP.

We are living through some pretty extraordinary times. Sometimes it's hard to make sense of it all and keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you find you are struggling to experience the joy you once had, you aren't alone. Cultivating and maintaining healthy behaviors and relationships, managing unhelpful thoughts and keeping anxiety from running the show are all achievable. You don't have to white knuckle your way through this alone.

Cigna and Evernorth Psychiatrists
Cigna and its healthcare division Evernorth provide behavioral health coverage though managed care plans and Medicare Advantage plans. Outside the U.S., Cigna provides insurance through Cigna Global Health Benefits.

Cigna and Evernorth HMO plans only cover services from in-network providers and require a referral from your primary care physician. EPO plans also utilize in-network providers but generally do not require a PCP referral. PPO plans offer the most flexibility and a larger network of providers, and may include some out of network benefits.

Occasionally Cigna or Evernorth Psychiatrists in Westport will only accept a limited number of in-network insurance patients in their practice, so it's important to check if your plan is accepted when you book a consultation.

Based in Connecticut, Cigna insures 180 million people in more than 30 countries around the world. Cigna rebraded its health services division as Evernorth in September 2021.

Here’s a link to more information on how insurance works to cover behavioral health benefits.
