Questions from parents like you

Brightline was created for parents by parents who get it. Our team of licensed therapists and expert behavioral health coaches have years of experience doing evidence-based work with kids and teens of all ages. We’ll also keep you informed on your family’s progress, ensure your information is secure, and personalize your care plan — both from the start and as your child’s needs evolve.

We provide personalized coaching, therapy, and medication management. Our sessions are held via video visit, and you have access to a secure website and app where you can track progress, make and see appointments, and access expert-backed resources. Brightline’s therapists and coaches are available Monday-Friday, 9 AM–6 PM local time.

Coaching deals with behaviors or emotions that your child is experiencing in shorter, focused sessions. Expert behavioral health coaches teach new skills that address things like separation anxiety or tantrums. Coaches then practice these skills with the child, motivating them to work towards positive change and reaching their goals.

In therapy, the therapist or psychologist and your child work together to look at behaviors and emotions and then try to understand the root cause of them. By asking bigger "why" questions and diving into the past, symptoms can be identified and reduced. Therapy is also used to assess, diagnose, and treat more severe or complex conditions.

It depends. Brightline partners with health plans and employers nationwide. For most of our members, Brightline is covered by their employer or insurance — with no referrals needed.

We accept insurance from employers and health plans such as Premera, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and many more. Our Member Support team can help verify whether Brightline is covered by your insurance. If Brightline isn't covered by your insurance, your family can still access all that Brightline has to offer.

Our Member Support team can provide you with information to submit to your insurance, HSA, or FSA. Call 888-224-7332 to speak with a Member Support specialist.
