About Paying for Counseling

We know that counseling can be an unexpected expense in your life. Most of our clients find that their insurance will reimburse them on an out of network basis, as will Health Savings Acccounts. It’s best to call your insurance company about your benefits before starting treatment, so there aren’t surprises. To help with the “float” before insurance reimburses you, we take credit cards. We also have a few reduced fee slots during the day time hours.
