Local Counseling Resources

When looking for counseling services, cost can be a big factor. To try and reduce your cost first check with your health insurance company and/or employer to learn about your benefits. Many health insurance policies cover mental health services and will give you a list of approved providers in your area. Also, many employers have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that will give you a referral and cover a specific number of visits.

If neither of these situations apply to you, or you prefer to not use your insurance, you may be looking for a reduced cost option. Listed below are a couple of offices in the area that have low cost counseling available.
