PAYMENTS AND INSURANCE
I do not process any insurance in my office. You can read more about the purposes for that on the FAQ page. Payments can be made via cash, check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) can also be used to cover counseling services. I take payments directly in my office after each session.
A few thoughts when struggling through the cost of counseling
Seeking healing and restoration is well-worth the investment of time and resources. Think more in terms of VALUE instead of simply COST. Each of us have the choice to use our resources for what matters and what we value most. Think about this:
Two family meals eating out at a restaurant can cost the same as a counseling session.
One quick trip to Target for miscellaneous items can easily run up a tab about the same price as a counseling session.
A couple of Amazon purchases could equal the price of a well-spent session working on a relationship bringing you distress.
Numerous trips through the drive-though can quickly add up to the price of a counseling session.
Sacrifice in one area can reap incredible rewards in another. If you are struggling in an area but don’t feel like you can afford counseling, set a budget for yourself for the next 2 months and save enough for a couple of sessions. Take an inventory of what is most important to you and then willingly spend your resources on what matters most. And if payment is difficult, ask a family member to invest in your relational, spiritual, and emotional health by chipping in a little to help with session cost. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
