Pricing Information

Payments

We accept cash, check, or credit/debit. In order to help you stay current on your payments we offer payment through Quickbooks. You will be provided with a link to make your payment online after your first session. If you have any questions you can contact Laura.Torres@JudahChristianCounseling.com or call (346) 302-8089.

Cancellations

Please let us know as soon as possible if you discover that you will not be able to keep an appointment. No fee will be charged if you cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance. Appointments will be charged the set fee for any appointment canceled with less than 24 hour notice, as the time and space have been reserved for the client. Exceptions will be given for emergencies. You will not be charged for appointments during your therapist's absence.

Insurance

We do not take insurance as we are considered an out of network provider. We encourage you contact your insurance provider to determine what your actual cost of counseling will be. It is possible they will provide reimbursement or apply counseling services to your deductible. We can provide you with a detailed statement to file for reimbursement with your insurance carrier.  A diagnosis will need to be given in order to be reimbursed under insurance. 

Most insurance carriers do not cover couples, premarital, or marital therapy. Contact your provider to see what your mental health benefits are and what they pay for an out-of-network provider. 

Testifying in Court

It is our desire to provide you with the best care in attaining your goals. If your intention for counseling is only to aid in a court case, we ask that you choose an alternative resource. Court cases take up additional time and resources that we can use to help serve others.
