Many individuals seek to use their insurance when considering counseling, yet many refrain in doing so due to the stigmatization of a diagnosis. You may already know that in order for insurance companies to pay for counseling services, the counselor must provide a diagnosis using the DSM-IV to the insurance company. This diagnosis is unfortunately permanent and is out there for the world to see. As a result, many individuals and parents of children, decide to pay for counseling services out of pocket.
While Counseling at Cornerstone does not take insurance, we do offer a limited amount of slots for sliding scale clients that can range from $65-$85 after a slide scale application is filled out. (Please inquire for more information). We also try to keep our rates highly competitive and affordable to make counseling as accessible as possible.
