Clark Counseling Solutions – Individual, Couples, Family, & Group Counseling
Q: Is counseling for me?
A: This is a question that most people ask at some point in their lives. You may be use to handling your problems on your own, or have gotten use to the status quo. The answer is simple. If you are reading this then you could benefit from counseling. Everyone could use an unbiased listener, a little extra support, or guidance to get where you want to be. No matter how big or small, issues tend to grow to the point of becoming overwhelming when they aren’t dealt with properly. We can help. You determine the pace and length of your counseling. There doesn’t have to be a long term commitment. If you want more information on choosing a counselor, knowing what to expect, etc. check out our blog.
Q: What are the hours of operation?
A: We are available by appointment only. There are no set hours in which the office is open. We offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments.
Q: How much do services cost?
A: The standard rates are $100 per hour for individual, couples, and family sessions. Group counseling/Support groups range from Free to $25 depending on the particular group. We do offer an adjusted rate scale on a limited basis. Contact us for details. Sessions are typically 1 hour in length unless otherwise discussed. Many couples and families find it is more convenient to come less frequently for 2 hour sessions. We strive to individualize your experience to fit everyone’s needs.
Q: Is what we discuss in counseling confidential?
A: This is an important topic which is discussed with each new client. Counselors are required to keep your information and details of what is discussed in session completely confidential. However, by law, there are 3 exceptions to this confidentiality. If there is a suspicion of a child or disabled adult being abused, or if a client is at risk to harm themselves or someone else, these things must be reported to the appropriate parties. The third exception is if a judge court orders your counseling records. If you have any questions on this it can be discussed in more detail at any time.
Q: Can I use my health insurance to pay for counseling services?
A: There are several things to check prior to using your insurance. You will need to contact your provider to determine if mental health services are covered; in many cases individual sessions will be covered but not couples or family. Once you determine that your coverage does include the services, some of the things you need to find out are how many sessions per year are covered, if your deductible has been met, if you have a co pay, and if you need a referral from your primary physician. Please contact us for an up to date list of insurance plans we currently accept.
Q: Can I do sessions by phone if I can’t make it in to the office?
A: Telephone appointments are available upon request. Those appointments must be scheduled in advance and details worked out prior to the session.
