What type of counseling is provided?
We believe that a biblical worldview is paramount in the counseling process, but also find that there are very useful tools and techniques in many of the counseling theories used today, therefore we take an integrative approach. We provide Christ-centered and solution-focused counseling based upon biblical hope and principles. Our goal is to be both clinically descriptive and biblically prescriptive. Each counselor specializes in various areas of counseling.
What about confidentiality?
Confidentiality is paramount, and each individual that inquires about our counseling services or that is seen by one of our counselors will be treated as such. The confidentiality agreement is explained in detail during the initial intake session.
What are your fees?
We are committed to providing each and every client with the highest level of care possible, regardless of their socioeconomic status or level of income. With this commitment in mind, we have discovered that in order to maintain client dignity, and to facilitate a higher level of client commitment to the treatment process, it is advantageous to charge all clients a fee of some amount. Each counselor sets their own fees, which will be discussed during the initial intake session.
Do you accept insurance?
Currently, some of our counselors accept HSA/FSA card payments, but not all of them. In addition, each counselor is authorized to adjust their fees as they deem necessary on a case by case basis. Counseling fees are typically discussed during the initial intake session, but you are welcome to connect with one of our counselors to see if your HSA/FSA card can be utilized.
