Frequently Asked Questions

Between the ages of nine and eighteen, girls undergo significant physical, emotional, and cognitive development. To help them navigate these changes and build the skills and confidence they need to succeed, we concentrate our efforts on this age group, providing tailored assistance and resources. With over 30 years of experience, Shayna Feldman Barksdale, LCSW-S, and her team of therapists has developed specific tools to address the ever-changing lives of these girls.

When ATFG initially launched in 2012, we did accept insurance. But as time went on, we realized that justifying additional sessions for our clients was consuming too much of our time and energy. To ensure our focus remained on clinical work, we made the decision to discontinue accepting insurance. Instead, most of our clients use their HSA cards to pay for our services. In situations where out-of-network reimbursement is available, we can provide a super bill.

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.

At this time, we are accepting new clients. Please note that after-school appointments are limited. However, we do have a couple of therapists available on Sundays to accommodate your schedule.  Give our admin, Brook a call and he can answer all your questions.


The best way to schedule an assessment to make sure we are a fit is to call our admin Brook at 512-981-5279. We prefer to meet with parents first if the client is 13 and under or submit an email  on our contact page here.

We have an awesome blog that we publish monthly and have a monthly newsletter as well. Also, take a moment to like our instagram page at ATFG.
