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).

American Counseling Association Foundation Offers Grants of Up to $500

by User Not Found | Oct 19, 2017
The American Counseling Association Foundation is seeking proposals from American Counseling Association members for grants of up to $500 in three areas: Disaster-Relief Efforts, Growing Healthy and Confident Kids, and General Needs.
  • Disaster-Relief Efforts: The Disaster-Relief Grants will assist counselors in disaster-relief efforts addressing natural or other disasters affecting counseling services.
  • Growing Healthy and Confident Kids: The Growing Healthy and Confident Kids Funds Grants will help counselors in work with interventions, initiatives, or outreach efforts directed to children in grades K-5. The counselors’ work must be oriented toward increasing the emotional literacy of children and better equipping them to handle life’s challenges.
  • General Microgrants: These grants are designed to address the needs of professional counselors working in areas not covered by the first two grant programs listed above.

Applicants for American Counseling Association Foundation grants must be an active member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and currently working as a counselor or enrolled as a graduate student in a counseling program. If a team of applicants submits an application packet, at least one applicant on the team must be an active ACA member upon submission of the application. 

Applications for grant funding must be submitted by completing the online American Counseling Association Foundation Funding Application. All applicants are required to answer the questions included in the online form and to submit a preliminary budget detailing the use of the requested funds. The application process is now open. Completed applications will be reviewed upon submission.
