How much will therapy cost?
It depends on the type of insurance that you have. All Season's Counseling & Consulting will bill your insurance company directly. However, most policies have a co-payment amount that the client is responsible for. This amount can be paid at the time of each session or at the end of the month when the billing statement is received. Please call to discuss your individual needs regarding payment. Insurance, Medicaid and private pay clients are accepted. It may be helpful to contact your insurance company regarding your coverage for outpatient therapy prior to your first appointment.
What can be expected during the first session?
The first session is a time to discuss your individual needs and to establish goals for therapy. It may also be time to begin to problem solve the issues that brought you to therapy. In addition, a small amount of paperwork is necessary. Payment options will also be discussed at this time.
How long will each session last?
Typically each session will last 45-50 minutes unless other arrangements are made.
How often will I need to attend therapy?
Most clients attend therapy on a weekly basis. During times of crisis it may be necessary to meet more often. However, many clients progress to the point that they only need to meet on an every other week or monthly basis. Your individual needs will be discussed throughout the therapeutic process.
How many sessions will be necessary?

There are many more issues that can be addressed in therapy. Each client has unique needs that will be addressed accordingly.
How long will it take to get an appointment?
