Although we do not take insurance, our goal is to make counseling affordable for everyone. Therefore, we have a sliding fee scale, ranging from $50.00 to $2.00, based on your annual household gross income and family size.
Our resolve is to make counseling affordable to all who need it; therefore, we strive to not turn anyone away due to financial reasons. (We do, however, believe that clients need to pay something.) During the intake, you will be asked your annual household gross income, and you will be told what our suggested fee for you is. If you have extenuating financial circumstances, you will be able to discuss these at the time of intake, or later with your intern therapist if your circumstances change while you are involved in counseling.
There is also a “Free Alternative” – helping you, helping us. Because we use the Marriage & Family Centers as an educational training ground for our masters level interns, we are able to offer three free counseling sessions for couples or families, only. A Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist will work with the clients during three sessions; however, they will be discreetly observed by some intern therapists through a one-way mirror. After the initial three free sessions, clients have an option to continue counseling with an intern therapist at the Center and pay an agreed upon fee. Availability is limited; days and times must be prearranged. For more information or assistance in this, please call Kathy Lewis at 717-627-4550.
