Christian Counseling Services is NOT a network provider for any insurance companies. You may want to see if your insurance company pays for "out of network benefits". We ask that clients pay when services are provided and will gladly give clients a "super-bill" to submit to their insurance companies.
(See "Paying for Therapy out of Your Pocket" article). We make every effort to work with our client's financial concerns by offering sliding fee scales when appropriate.
Fees typically range from $30 to $150 per hour based on experience/education of the therapist and client financial consideration (*psychologist fees are from $175-$225 per hour*).
***WE ARE PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER HIGH QUALITY LOW FEE FAITH-BASED COUNSELING BY EMPLOYING INTERNS AND PRACTICUM STUDENTS. THEY WORK UNDER CLOSE SUPERVISION BY JENNIFER AND OFFER A SLIDING FEE SCALE.
