Our normal fee for a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) is $100 per session. However, with our sliding scale rates, it is $70-$100 per session - depending on your household income. We do have a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who speaks fluent Spanish.
We also have Registered Interns and Mental Health Counselor Interns that work under the direct supervision of our Executive Clinical Director, Clarissa Crystal-Belle, LMHC; they provide similar counseling services. The fee to see a Registered Intern is $50-$70 on a sliding scale. Proof of income is required for sliding scale (pay stub or another form of income).
All Registered Interns have to complete a 1 year internship to get their Masters Degree and have to complete a 2 year Registered Internship and pass a State Board Exam to become Licensed.
We accept self pay and Major Insurances such as United Behavioral Healthcare, United Health Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Mutual of Omaha EAP, Mehra EAP, Baycare EAP and others. Some people prefer to self pay as it gives them a higher degree of confidentiality; once insurance is billed the insurance company has the legal right to review your file and case notes, this is a lesser degree of privacy and it could effect people applying for jobs in certain industries and the military.
