What are your hours?

The office staff is available from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Our therapists offer early morning and late afternoon/evening hours, Monday through Friday and a few therapists work on Saturdays. Naturally, sessions outside of school and business hours are premium to most clients, thus may be more difficult to schedule. 

What is your cancellation policy?

Appointments must be cancelled 48 hours in advance. Missed appointments and cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance result in a full fee charge for the counseling session.

Do you offer sliding scale or reduced-fee counseling?

Frequently, a few therapists offer a sliding scale depending on individual and family financial circumstances and availability of reduced-fee spots.

Do you accept insurance?

Typically, we do not work directly with insurance providers, but we will provide you with the paperwork for you to submit to your insurance company. Many plans offer partial reimbursement for out-of-network providers. Contact your insurance company to find out if your plan covers out-of-network mental health services.

What are your fees?

Our fees range from $100 – $195 per session depending on the therapist.

Do you pray with your clients or use the Bible in Counseling?

Counseling treatment involves many aspects of an individual or family’s beliefs and life experiences including a look at emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, and relational health. Prayer, use of scripture, and other resources are used upon the wishes of the client.

Clients from non-Christian faiths find comfort and hope in prayer and religious writings and may request that these be an active part of their counseling experiences in the context of their personal faith. Non-religious clients can utilize their preferred resources to enhance their counseling experience.

Grace Counseling is a Christian counseling center. What does this mean? What if I am of another faith or non-religious? What is Christian counseling?

Our therapists are Christian by faith, from a variety of denominational backgrounds. As licensed professionals, we honor the personal beliefs and convictions of the clients we serve. Clients choose if and how they would like to incorporate their personal faith or spirituality into counseling.

Clients who are Christian and are seeking to develop their faith can be sure to find counselors here with grace and spiritual development competence who can walk with them on their journey. Clients can be assured that we will follow biblical principles.

Clients who identify as a Christian and prefer not to discuss the Bible or Christian values or do not wish to include their spirituality in the counseling process will feel comfortable.

When clients walk in the door who self-identify as non-religious, non-spiritual, and non-Christian, they will also feel welcome and comfortable.
