Q: Do you take insurance?
A: No, however, we will give you a receipt with diagnostic codes that you can give to your insurance company for reimbursement. Note- this is not a guarantee that you insurance will cover all or a portion of your visits.
Q: What do I do if I can’t afford the counseling fee?
A: You may check with the counselor scheduling your appointment to see if you might qualify for a reduced fee. We will ask you for a brief financial statement along with proof of income so we can determine what level of discount, if any, for which you qualify.
We encourage people to be as self-resourceful as possible in being responsible for paying for their services. Consider asking for help from family, friends, your church or employer, or a charitable organization. Can you cut out some of the extra costs from your budget during the duration of your counseling? You have to decide what is a priority to you. The investment you make in your mental health today is going to bring benefits for years to come. It is longer lasting and more life-changing than having the material objects of life.
Q: How long will I need to be in counseling?
A: It depends on many factors. The most important being the issue you are dealing with, how motivated you are, and how compliant you are with the treatment. As you move along in your counseling treatment, your counselor may be able to give you an idea of the anticipated duration of your treatment, but there are no guarantees. We will not speed up your care to please you just as we won’t prolong your care to keep you as a client. Many clients start with weekly counseling and then go to less frequent sessions as they begin to make progress. Once you and your counselor feel that you are near completion of your treatment, a discharge plan will be discussed to help you maintain your progress as you continue your road to healing.
