Fees for counseling services are on a sliding scale determined by income. We work hard to try to ensure that we do not turn away any person due to the inability to pay for services. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. We do not accept direct assignment of Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance benefits, nor can we bill insurance companies directly. Cash and checks are accepted.
What to expect for your appointment
We make sure clients get the personalized attention and the care they need to heal. The first appointment is called a general intake session, during which you’ll fill out paperwork and discuss your general concerns with your counselor. After this, counseling is completely guided by you.
We will try to match you with the counselor with whom you feel most comfortable. During your sessions, your counselor will talk with you 1-on-1 to gain a better understanding of your wellbeing or health concerns. Counseling sessions last approximately 50 minutes. You have the right to choose what you do and do not discuss with your counselor, as well as how often you’d like to attend sessions.
The clinic’s training model includes live supervision and observation of counseling sessions designed to equip clinic trainees with the skills and support necessary to provide ethical and professional psychological services to best meet the needs of each client. Additionally, all counseling sessions are recorded for training purposes.
The clinic provides confidential services. The clinic is fully committed to the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Counseling Association (ACA), and to all applicable legal standards.
