Our counseling fee is $75 per hour for daytime appointments, and $85 per hour for evening and early morning appointments.
All counseling charges are due before each appointment. We accept cash (exact amount appreciated), personal checks, and major credit cards.
In today’s health insurance climate, insurers are increasingly reluctant to pay for an out-of-network provider. It is important for you to understand what your policy covers. If you have coverage, we are glad to help you submit the proper information to your carrier. However, you will be expected to make full payment at the time of your session and have your insurance company reimburse you. Thanks for your understanding.
For those whose insurance does not cover biblical counseling, some reduced rates are available. Please contact our office for details.
On the rare occasion that the CCEF New England office closes due to weather, we will call all counselees scheduled for that day. Should you ever decide to cancel your session due to weather, we simply ask that you call to let us know. No cancellation fee will be charged.
