We offer health insurance credentialing, billing, and a supportive work environment. Team members meet weekly to share the latest practices within a trauma-informed, social-justice framework. We choose to work together because we have a shared goal of meeting clients where they are, and value the continual learning and growth that happens through collaboration.
