Counseling Facts

Did you know you can interview a counselor before you start using them? Call and chat with a counselor to see if they are the right one for you.

Most insurance companies will pay for your counseling appointment with you paying the same co-pay you pay to see your medical doctor.

The number of counseling sessions can vary greatly. You may want to just have a few sessions to work on one specific timely problem or you may be in counseling a while to deal with deeper issues.

There is individual counseling, couple counseling, and family counseling.  Which do you want? Find out if your counselor has experience with couple or family counseling (they all have experience with individual counseling).
