Pricing

COUNSELING SESSION:  $75.00 per hour  SEE CANCELLATION POLICY 

PHONE/SKYPE COUNSELING:  Ask about the cost, scheduled times and days available

Affordable Counseling:  Our base rate is set to reflect the co-pay required by most insurance firms in order to make the service more affordable, especially since the majority of insurance companies do not accept faith based counseling unless the insurer requests it.  

 

IMPORTANT:  CANCELLATION POLICY 

The low hourly rate we charge is fixed on the basis of continual, uninterrupted counseling, from week to week otherwise we would charge the much higher standard rate to make up the loss.  We know that  unforeseen circumstances will arise, however, cancellations have become so widespread that it adversely affects our ability to meet current financial responsibilities, to fill vacancies, if at all, and to continue to render services at a discounted rate.

24 HOUR NOTICE FOR ANY CANCELLATION

Flat rate pricing means that you pay a set price, billed weekly for the number of weeks in a month, whether you make a particular appointments or not.  However, if given 24 hours notice prior to any cancellation, due to a sickness, travel issue or other emergency, you will not be charged.

Please call (775) 376-1312 for an appointment

 

INSURANCE

We do not accept or bill insurance.  We prefer Cash or Check but will accept debit or credit card payments due at the time of your counseling office visit.  We do not bill any Insurance Companies because they do not recognize faith based counselors even though we are trained in CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Schema or Belief System Therapy) certified by accredited  schools.  They disregard the fact that we are  clinical professional members of the National Christian Counselors Association.  In addition, they require a diagnosis, a diagnostic code which is based on a DSM-IV Service Manual of mental health disorder(s) when a super bill is generated to the health insurance company. The majority of our clients do not fall under the category of “mental disorder” and we are not sure how insurance companies use the information submitted to them. When provided diagnosis’ or diagnostic code(s) assumed to be mental disorders of some kind this could ‘potentially appear’ on a client’s permanent health record.
