A counseling session is generally 45-60 minutes long and occurs every 1-2 weeks. Your insurance company may dictate the length of the session, should you be using insurance. A counseling "chapter" can last anywhere from 4 to 50+ weeks depending on the needs and condition of the client. A counseling relationship is ongoing as a client may need to "dust off" their skills even after they've completed their goals. At that point, you may be interested in occasional “maintenance” sessions (every 3-6 months) to engage in preventative and/or proactive mental health care.
The fees for services vary on the type of session and needs of the client. Please contact the counseling office for more details.
Insurances accepted include: BlueCross and BlueShield plans, Sanford Health Plan (including Sanford Expansion), Medica, UnitedHealthCare, Optum, PreferredOne, and Medicare. Some EAP plans are accepted as well. You can call your EAP provider for preauthorization and to ask if your provider is in your network. Please ask if your insurance is not listed as you may qualify for out-of-network benefits.
In addition to your counseling needs, please explore these additional resources that may provide additional help for 24/7 on-call care, community meetings, peer support, and more.
