One of the main reasons people don’t seek out a qualified counselor when they need one is because it costs too much. Here at Cornerstone we don’t want the cost of therapy to stop you, so we’ve kept our fees as reasonable as possible. They are as follows:
- Individual session
- $45-$140 (45-50 minutes; cost varies depending on therapist)
- Joint session (i.e. a couple or a family)
- $55-$155 (45-50 minutes; cost varies depending on therapist)
- Joint elongated session (i.e. a couple or a family)
- $70-$185 (75-80 minutes; cost varies depending on therapist)
We try our best to provide low-cost Christian counseling, so for those who need it, we do offer a reduced fee pricing structure. Please contact us to receive our Reduced Fee Application via email, fax or snail mail. We don’t want the cost of therapy to stop you.
With few exceptions, Cornerstone Christian Counseling does not bill insurance directly. Here’s why:
We want YOU to have a say in the counseling process:
We don’t know if you’ve tried, but we have. We’ve called our own insurance companies to try to set up an appointment with a counselor and have found that the wait to see someone is extensive, and the representative you speak with can tell you very little about the person you will be meeting with. You also may find that you are limited to a certain number of sessions to make progress towards your therapeutic goals, and the face-to-face time that you have with your counselor is limited.
At Cornerstone, we believe in personalizing the counseling process from start to finish. When you call us the first time, our office staff will take the time to get to know you and your situation so that we will be able to direct you to the counselor best suited for you. In fact, we are so confident in our ability to make a good match between you and one of our counselors that should you meet with a counselor on our team for the first time and feel like it’s the wrong fit, we will gladly reschedule you for another visit with a different counselor on our team at no charge to you. Now that’s peace of mind.
We respect your privacy:
Put simply, insurance companies require a diagnosis to authorize treatment. These negative labels can follow a client through life and interfere with insurability later. At Cornerstone, we get it – life happens. We believe talking to someone when you need a little help to figure things out shouldn’t require a diagnosis, and your files are never shared with anyone.
But what if I still want to utilize insurance?
If requested, we will provide an insurance superbill for your counseling appoitment at the time of service that may be used to submit to your insurance company for reimbursements. Many of our clients have high deductibles which they pay out of pocket anyway and want to choose a counselor for themselves vs having the insurance company choose for them.
