Clients that do not call within the 24 hour cancellation period may be subject to our standard $50 cancellation fee. We understand that things happen that can prevent appointments from being kept, but we also need adequate time to fill appointment slots that are opened up when clients cancel. Each provider differs in their adherence to the cancellation fee policy (some therapists are more lenient than others), so feel free to speak with your therapist to find out more about the cancellation policy.


    *These rates only apply to individual therapy. Rates and availability for other counseling services may differ. Contact Us for more information about our other services and rates.
    Per hour typically refers to each individual session (which lasts between 45 minutes to an hour). The clinician reserves the right to charge on an actual per hour basis if sessions last for longer than an hour. Talk with your therapist to find out more about their specific policies.

    All individuals seeking to undergo assessment with an Intern/Practicum student must complete an initial screening consultation and be approved by the supervising psychologist before scheduling an evaluation.

Interns & Externs

Hope Counseling Centers works with interns and externs in order to help keep costs down and to facilitate the training of professionals entering into the field of mental health care. A psychological intern is someone who has completed their academic requirements and is working towards the required hours necessary to obtain licensure in their respective field. A psychological extern is someone who is currently in an academic program and working towards getting hands-on experience in the field. Externs receive extensive supervision and training to ensure that they are proficient in therapeutic interventions and psychological assessment proceedures. Our interns and externs are highly-trained and can typically offer services at a significantly reduced cost as they are working on obtaining training hours required to become licensed. Many clients choose to work with our interns and practicum students as a way to receive quality services at a lower cost.
Individual Therapy Rates (without insurance)*:
Intern/Extern prices vary depending on the provider. Intern and Extern prices typically range from $25 to $50 per session, with some interns offering even lower prices. Please Contact Us to find out more about the availability and rates of our interns and practicum students.
Availability:
Days and hours vary depending on need and provider availability.

Insurance Policies Accepted:
