Intake Session is $50.00. It is the first interview session with a Christian Counselor. It provides an opportunity to assess your situation, share referrals to other counselors/pastors/therapists/coaches, or discern if you as a client want to move forward with Impact Family Christian Counseling. All donations are tax-deductible (See Tax Exempt Certificate).
Since we operate strictly as a Christian Bible-based Counseling Network, free from secular licensing regulations and philosophies we do not take insurance, but suggested donations from our clients and private contributions from donors who graciously help subsidize our overhead.
Counselors have different suggested contribution rates. If you are experiencing economic hardship, please fill out a Counseling Scholarship Request to see how we can assist you. Thank you!
