All Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, United Behavioral Healthcare/Optum, and Some TUFTS Insurance Accepted for Counseling Services

The Triumph Center is pleased to continue accepting Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, United Behavioral Healthcare/Optum, and some TUFTS insurances for behavioral counseling services.  This important change was made to better serve our families who asked us to consider adding these capabilities.  Parents are telling us the coverage is quite good from these companies, so if this has been a concern previously, we strongly encourage you to contact us now to learn more or to get started.

New Name – Triumph Center

After much encouragement from parents and professionals, we have changed our name to better reflect our mission to help children and adolescents grow, thrive, and build self-esteem and healthy peer relationships.  The “Triumph Center for child and adolescent counseling” offers the same services, with the same highly experienced and professional staff, but we are also adding more features to help families, children, adolescents, and young adults.  We have expanded our services to all ages, and we are continuing our unique and effective approach to help people lead healthier and more successful lives.  We encourage you to visit our offices to learn how we are changing to better meet the needs of our families.
