How much does counseling cost?
Counseling session rates vary by clinician.
Shelly Kessinger, LPC: $200/session, except for the first session which is $225
Kacey Petrash, LPC Associate: $125/session, except for the first session which is $140
Do you take insurance?
No, we are considered an out-of-network provider. We can give you a receipt, and you can submit that receipt to your insurance company for a possible reimbursement.
The amount that is reimbursed depends on your insurance plan. You can call your insurance company and ask what out-of-network benefits that you have.
We do accept FSA and HSA cards for payment.

How often are the counseling sessions?
You can choose how often you would like to come in, depending on your budget, schedule, and progress in counseling. Some couples choose weekly, some couples choose monthly, and some couples check in as needed throughout the year. We are open to whatever works best for you.
Does couples counseling work?
Many couples that we have worked with have said that counseling was helpful. However, the outcome depends on the couple themselves.
Couples counseling works best when both partners are motivated to change. In session, we will give you strategies and communication techniques to try. However, it is up to the couple to implement those strategies at home.
