We are located at: 109 5th Street SW in Watford City, ND
the former Dr. Norby/Eyes by Design location.
Empowered Therapy offers an array of services surrounding mental health and assessments. Our staff works with clients ranging from the age of 4 to 105. Services are provided to individuals, couples, and families both in person and through telehealth. Located in Watford City and Dickinson, North Dakota, our focus is on you!
We accept many insurance plans, yet understanding your own unique plan and benefits is absolutely crucial. We will help verify, to the best of our ability, your benefits PRIOR to your first appointment. This is one of the reasons we require that intake paperwork be completed within 48 hours of receiving it, so we may have time to complete this task and relay the information provided. Many times, once an insurance claim is processed, it will be different from the information we (or you) received from your insurance company. Therefore, our initial information is a best estimate, yet not a guarantee. It's a difficult matrix of information, and we sincerely appreciate your patience!
Currently, we have clinicians on staff who are credentialed with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (if your plan is Federal or from a different state, we still submit to ND), Sanford Health, Medicaid, and United. At times we accept EAP clients such as Village, Espyr, and others, and we can at times make single-case agreements with other insurance plans such as Cigna, Aetna, Meritain, etc. We do NOT and do not anticipate to be able to accept Medicare or Tricare, yet we are working on contracting with the VA for veteran care.
Our fees are currently $245 for an intake session and $215 for ongoing sessions.
***As of 4/17/2023, our fees will increase to $300 for an intake and $250 for ongoing sessions due to cost of living increases in the area and nationwide. Please feel free to contact us regarding our limited availability sliding scale for self-pay clients or if your insurance is pending.***
