We know that the process of beginning therapy can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to determining level of care needed and navigating insurance coverage. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and understood as we navigate this process together. Please read below to learn more about starting therapy and what to expect.
Making the first call to inquire about treatment can be hard. In order to support you in this process, we offer various ways to get in touch with us and explore our services. Please explore our "Contact Us" page for more information on taking this first step!
After connecting with you, our intake coordinator will provide you access to our secure client portal via email where you can complete all intake forms electronically at your own convenience. All intake forms must be completed before scheduling your first session.
Once we receive your intake paperwork, we will contact you within one business day to schedule your intake appointment. During this appointment, we will give our professional recommendation for level of care and form a plan together for starting treatment.

Various therapists on our team are in-network with various insurance plans. For psychotherapy, we currently accept Anthem BCBS, Cigna, and Rocky Mountain Health Plans; however, in-network status is therapist-specific. Please inform us if you would like to use your insurance so that we can do our best to match you with a therapist who is in-network with your plan. We will provide you with a quote of your insurance benefits, detailing what they will cover, prior to your first appointment. Benefit checks done by Bloom Counseling & Nutrition are not guaranteed in accuracy as your coverage can change at any point. It is important that you check your own mental health benefits as well by calling your insurance company. In the event that a benefit was misquoted, it is still your responsibility to pay your balance.
We are not in-network with any insurance plans for dietetic services.
All of our providers are considered out-of-network providers. This means that most insurance plans allowing members to go out-of-network for services will reimburse you for some or all of our fees. Please inquire with your carrier to check if you have "out-of-network benefits", which might cover our services. You may more specifically ask about coverage of "outpatient mental health" or "outpatient nutrition counseling" within your out-of-network benefits. We have created this guide to assist you with contacting your insurance company to check on your out-of-network benefits. We are happy to provide you with support and assistance in inquiring about your out-of-network benefits.
Payment in full is due at the time services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. We accept payments in the form of cash, check, and major debit, credit, HSA or FSA cards. All clients are required to keep a current credit card on file to be used as either a primary or secondary form of payment. If finances present a hardship, please let us know so that we can discuss payment arrangements and options.

We are partnered with Project HEAL as members of the HEALers Circle. Through our partnership with Project HEAL, Bloom offers pro bono care as well as services at reduced rates to select Project HEAL beneficiaries.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please give as much notice as possible so your session time may be filled by another individual who may be waiting for services. Schedule changes or cancellations may be made up to 48 hours prior to the originally scheduled session without an additional fee.
Late Cancellations & No-Shows
We consider our meetings very important and ask that you do the same. You will be charged the full fee for sessions canceled with less than a 48-hours’ notice. Full session fees will also be charged for any no-show appointments. We will excuse the first late cancellation or no-show of each calendar year; however, afterward, there will be no exceptions to this policy regardless of circumstances. Late cancellations and no-shows for intake appointments will not be excused and are subject to the full session fee.
What ages does Bloom provide services to?We provide services to clients ages 14 and over. We will consider clients under the age of 14 on a case by case basis. All gender identities are welcome at Bloom.
Does Bloom accept insurance?Yes! Various therapists on our team are in-network with various insurance plans. For psychotherapy services, we currently accept Anthem BCBS, Cigna, and Rocky Mountain Health Plans; however, in-network status is therapist-specific. Please inform us if you would like to use your insurance so we can do our best to match you with a therapist who is in-network with your plan. We will check your benefits and let you know prior to your first appointment what you can expect your plan to cover. Please note however that a quote of benefits does not guarantee payment or verify eligibility, and all clients are responsible for any service costs that their insurance plan does not cover. We are not in-network with any insurance plans for dietetic services. If you would like to use an insurance plan that we are not in-network with, please inquire with your carrier if you have "out-of-network benefits", which might cover our services. At times, out-of-network benefits can be as good as (or better) than in-network benefits! We are happy to provide you with support and assistance in inquiring about your out-of-network benefits. Additionally, we have created a handout to help guide you in the process, which you can find here.
Does Bloom treat co-occuring disorders?Co-occurring disorders are very common for clients with eating disorders; however, in some cases, this may be an indication that a higher level of care or a non-eating disorder treatment referral is needed depending on the severity of any co-occuring disorders. At Bloom, we primarily treat eating disorders, which means that if the eating disorder is not the primary diagnosis, we may refer a potential client to a more appropriate treatment option. Additionally, we regularly provide services to clients who have trauma or a PTSD diagnosis in addition to an eating disorder. Our therapists are trained in a variety of modalities for supporting trauma survivors; however, we may refer clients to resources in the community if additional support and treatment is needed that we do not offer at Bloom.
How do I cancel or reschedule an appointment?You may always call or email your therapist to cancel or reschedule an appointment (their email is email@example.com). Our office policy is that all cancellations and reschedules must be made 48 hours before the scheduled appointment to avoid a fee. Late cancellations and no shows have a $135 (our full rate; $155 for initial sessions) fee that is charged to the client. Insurance cannot be charged for this fee.
How long will I be in therapy/recovery?At Bloom we wholeheartedly believe that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible; however, there is no guarantee of how long the recovery journey might be. Each client's recovery process looks different and depends on a variety of factors that contribute to the length of treatment. Some clients are in treatment for a few months while others are in treatment for years. It is important to note that you do not have to be fully recovered in order to start to experience positive changes from treatment and the recovery process.
How do I get to your office?Our office address is 2627 Redwing Rd, Suite 130, Fort Collins, CO 80526. We are located in the heart of Fort Collins, just south of the CSU Veterinary Hospital, near the intersection of College Avenue and Drake Road. Our building has a large sign reading "Creekside One" on the side and is sandwiched in the middle of two identical office buildings. Our building's entrance and parking area is located on the south side of the building.
When can I get started at Bloom?The timeline for receiving treatment at Bloom is dependent on our current openings and therapist/dietitian availability. If we do not have current openings, clients are placed on a waitlist and contacted as soon as we have an opening available. Clients can ask to be placed with a specific provider or with whoever has the earliest opening-- this can play a factor in the timeline as well. We ask clients to anticipate the intake process to take approximately a week from the time of first contact to scheduling an intake appointment when there is no waitlist.
