CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC CLINICIAN?

 

Yes, you certainly can! If you check out our Service Inquiry Form you will see that we offer an “additional information” section where you can make that request.

While we try to accommodate specific requests for clinicians, we cannot guarantee this due to the scheduling and workload considerations of our clinicians.

In such cases we will pick from our other Counsellors and make alternate suggestions.

 

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED TO DO?

 

This is a matter between you and your clinician.

When you meet with your clinician, your situation will be discussed to ensure you have proper expectations & your questions answered.

Informed consent is the goal which allows you to have control over how your plan of care is developed and implemented.

Another factor, if your insurance provider is paying for your sessions they may have a set limit. After that, if you wish to continue with your Counsellor you will have to make other payment arrangements.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?

 

Fees vary depending on the specific service you are requesting.

Also insurance plans and employee benefits vary in terms of co-pay amounts and the maximum amount they will pay for counselling services in a calendar year.

You can learn more by calling our clinic at (709) 754 2068 or by visiting our Fee Structure page.
