Preparing for Your First Appointment
What To Expect
You may request an appointment by completing an online form or by calling our office.
If you call us directly you will speak with a receptionist, and if you request your appointment online, our receptionist will call you generally between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time to gather information about you and the type of help you’re looking for. This will help determine which of our counselors you’ll work with.
When you first request an appointment, please be ready to give us the following information:
- The kind of help you are looking for
- The names and ages of all persons who will see the counselor
- Contact information including: address, phone number, and email
- How you learned about us
- Days and times when you are available for an appointment
- Your social-security number (we need this for your medical records)
- A credit or debit card you will use to reserve the appointment
After scheduling your appointment you will complete the necessary intake forms online.
Appointments are scheduled Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. depending on the counselor you see and your schedule. Typically we can schedule an appointment for you within a week of your request.
Standard sessions are 45 minutes long and begin at the top (12) or bottom (12:30) of every hour.
Session fees range from $55 to $195 per session depending on the experience of the counselor you see. Payment plans and scholarships are available depending on your income level.
You can submit claims your to insurance but My Counselor is not an in-network provider. So you’ll need to call your insurance and find out what out-of-network benefits are. You’ll pay at the time of your session and your insurance will reimburse for any benefits that you qualify for.

*All first-time appointments will be charged a non-refundable one-time $35 assessment and setup fee at the time of scheduling.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column_inner]If you fail to give notice of cancellation by 5 p.m. the business day before your scheduled appointment, your credit or debit card will be charged for the time you reserved.
A counselor’s time is very perishable. Unlike an item you return at the store that can be resold, once time has passed it is forever gone. Like a hotel room, once the time for cancellation of your appointment reservation has passed the time is yours, whether or not you are able to use it. When we hold an appointment slot for you we turn other people, who like you are looking for help, away. It’s not fair to the people we must turn away or to the counselor if you do not pay for the time held for you, even if the circumstances are beyond your control (they are also beyond the control of your counselor and those denied an appointment).
Canceling or rescheduling your appointment as soon as you become aware you will not be able to make it, 5 pm the business day before at the latest, allows us to offer your appointment time to those waiting for an appointment and those in crisis.
In the event of inclement weather or other circumstances that prevent you from making it to our office, you may be able to use your session time over the phone or by video
We apply the cancellation policy without favoritism and with uniformity to all clients to whom it applies.
