Cost



 
We recognize that for many, the question of whether or not to pursue counseling and which counselor to choose comes down to the bottom line, "What is this going to cost me?" Counseling is not cheap, and we understand that for many, this is quite an investment. At ALCS, we try to have top-notch clinicians at differing price-points, along with some sliding-scale availability, so that individuals who are committed can get the help that they need, regardless of their financial status. Counseling services are provided at rates consistent with that of professional mental health facilities in the area.  As the director of our center and a specialist with extensive post-graduate training in sex therapy, Kerry's rate is the highest, followed by our Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and then our Licensed Professional Counselor Interns. We will try to help you find the help that is best both for your needs and your budget.

Do we take insurance?

Our center is not on insurance panels, so payment is collected at the time of service.  However, many of our clients independently file for reimbursement with their insurance companies, and we will support you in that process by providing you with the documentation you will need.  To learn whether your insurance covers counseling sessions with Abundant Life Counseling Services, P.A., you can call them and ask whether they provide "mental health benefits for out-of-network providers." If they do, they will require specific information on your statements. Please inquire about what specific items are needed so that we can facilitate the process for you as smoothly as possible. 

Forms of Payment

We accept Visa and Mastercard, as well as cash or check. We also accept HSA cards from those who have Health Savings Accounts.

How long will it take?

That is a very good question. And the answer is, it depends. It depends on the severity of your circumstances and issues when you come to us. It depends on your goals and expectations about what you want out of therapy. Since therapy is a partnership as we work together toward your goals, it also depends on how committed you are to working both inside and outside of sessions. We want to help you heal and grow and find comfort and relief and joy as quickly as possible. We think working ourselves out of a job is a very good thing! We will work hard to provide the very best care so that you experience the most benefit from your time with us.
