Hourly appointments are available:
- Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, and

To request an appointment, call CCEF at 215-884-7676. Over the phone, you will begin the intake process that gets you started with counseling.
Our counseling fee is $85 per hour. The initial hour costs $90.00 to cover set-up fees.
All counseling charges are due before each appointment. Even if you are eligible for coverage under an insurance plan, CCEF requires you to pay for counseling before your appointment and then seek reimbursement from your insurance company.
CCEF is located just north of Philadelphia. Our address is:

Discount Options and Financial Assistance
Unfortunately, CCEF is unable to offer financial assistance to counselees. However, there are several ways to lower your counseling costs:
- Seek assistance from your church - We suggest you check with your pastor or deacon’s board to see if they can provide help with your counseling fees. Many of our counselees have benefited from the generosity of their own congregations.
- Supporting Church Program - If your church participates in CCEF’s Supporting Church Program you may be eligible for a discount on your counseling fee. If you are not sure if your church is part of the program, please check with the receptionist when paying for your first appointment.
- CCEF Interns - Interns from our School of Biblical Counseling are available as counselors from September to May of each year. The interns work under the close supervision of CCEF Faculty and experienced counselors. These interns are available at a discounted rate of about 1/2 the base counseling fee, currently $40.00 per hour.
- Observation Classes - If you are willing to be counseled by a CCEF faculty member or experienced counselor and be videotaped, you can receive a discounted fee. CCEF students will review the videos with the counselor for educational purposes. Observation classes take place from September through December and February through May each year. Please let the receptionist know you if you are interested in this option.
Due to the continuing reduction of reimbursement by insurance companies, CCEF no longer submits for insurance. All counseling charges are due prior to each appointment.
