Trauma and Grief Assessments for Youth

The Counseling Center utilizes a sliding scale fee structure based on the client's gross household income. Your fee will be discussed with you when your therapist schedules your first appointment. Payment is expected at the time of service and is the client's responsibility for every appointment. We accept cash, checks, VISA, and MasterCard.

The payment for services will be made out in cash or check to Christ United Methodist Church. Should you be unable to keep an appointment, you agree to contact your counselor at least 24 hours in advance of the session you must miss.

For all cancellations and rescheduling of appointments, 24 hours notice is required.
Failure to provide such notice may result in a fee of one-half your normal counseling fee being charged.
