How much will counseling cost?
For any type of counseling to be effective it does require a commitment of both time and finances. An important question to ask is whether or not you can afford to delay getting yourself or your relationship the help you need.
We can help to make this possible in a couple of ways.
We are able to take credit cards as well as HSA Health Savings Account or FSA cards (at times).
We can also explain how to get insurance reimbursement for out-of-network mental health services if you have those beneifts.
Do you take insurance?
Maplewood Counseling is insurance friendly.
We can often help you to use your insurance to offset the cost of therapy. Some of this depends on your particular benefits, yearly deductibles and reimbursement rates. Insurance typically does not cover any type of relationship, marriage or couples counseling since they do not view this as a mental health or medical diagnosis.
We can give you the information you need to check your benefits and find out if you can be reimbursed a percentage for our services.
Due to the cost and investment of counseling, it makes sense to call your insurance company and out if your medical benefits will cover or reimburse mental health counseling.
How long will I or we need counseling?
This is an understandable and common question. It is tough to determine how long counseling will last without knowing more about your situation.
Because we understand it does take a commitment of time and finances, we like to focus on helping couples, families and individuals in the shortest amount of time possible. However, some issues are more complicated and difficult and may require a longer treatment time.
Your counselor will remain in close communication with you to make sure your needs are being met. We want you or your relationship to feel you are making positive changes, whether you come for 4 sessions or 24 sessions!
