Frequently Asked Questions

Shayna Barksdale started ATFG because after 20 years in the public sector, she realized there was a great need for service specifically related to girls and young women and the struggles they face during many phases of their lives. As social workers, we do have a speciality however have many genders in our practice and do not discriminate based on gender identity or sexual orinetation.

Nope, like most of our clients we do not like being told what to do especially by others who have no clinical knowledge. We do not accept any insurance and will be happy to print a 1500/super bill on request to submit to your insurance company for out of network benefits. Most of our clients use their HSA card to pay for mental health services.

We are a fee for service practice and our fees for individual/family therapy are from $150-$250 per 50 min session depending on speciality and years of practice. Group therapy is $100 a session and is billed in two payments of usually $400 at the 1st session and 5th session. Most groups are 8 sessions total.
