We don’t want pricing to get in the way of transformational counseling
Oftentimes people don’t seek out a counselor when they need one because they fear it will cost too much, or they believe they’ll never find anyone who could possibly have enough experience to help them through whatever it is they’re going through. Here at Cornerstone, we want to alleviate both of these concerns.
Prices range from $55 - $175
Our Provisionally Licensed Professionals are the perfect blend of competence, professionalism and value, while our Licensed Professionals offer the experience that comes from being a licensed professional with a greater number of years in the field (and frequently, additional certifications and specialties as well).

Do you offer discounts?
We do our best to offer affordable Christian Counseling to as many people as possible, but we do offer a few discounts to specific groups of people.
ABIDE (Church Staff):
We believe that God calls us to support and love those who are in full-time church ministry. We extend one free session and three additional sessions at a discounted rate. This discount applies to all of our Tier 2-5 counselors and can be used by church staff and their spouses.
We extend a discount for all active duty, active reservists and retirees of the five primary military services (Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Marine Corps) and their dependents. This discount applies to all of our Tier 2-5 counselors.
If you don’t fit into either of these categories, we recommend that you check out our discount program where you can book counseling sessions for only $55. Read about our discount program.

What about insurance?
With few exceptions, Cornerstone Christian Counseling does not bill insurance directly. Here’s why:
We want YOU to have a say in the counseling process:
We don’t know if you’ve tried, but we have. We’ve called our own insurance companies to try to set up an appointment with a counselor and have found that the wait to see someone is extensive, and the representative you speak with can tell you very little about the person you will be meeting with. You also may find that you are limited to a certain number of sessions to make progress towards your therapeutic goals, and there is less face-to-face time with your counselor.
At Cornerstone, we believe in personalizing the counseling process from start to finish. When you call us for the first time, our office staff will take the time to get to know you and your situation so that we will be able to direct you to the counselor best suited for you. In fact, we are so confident in our ability to make a good match between you and one of our counselors that should you meet with a counselor on our team for the first time and feel like it’s the wrong fit, we will gladly reschedule you for another visit with a different counselor on our team at no charge to you. Now that’s peace of mind.
We respect your privacy:
Put simply, insurance companies require a diagnosis to authorize treatment. These negative labels can follow a client through life and interfere with insurability later. At Cornerstone, we get it – life happens. We believe talking to someone when you need a little help shouldn’t require a diagnosis, and your files are never shared with anyone.
But what if I still want to utilize insurance?
If requested, we can provide an insurance superbill for your counseling appointment at the time of service that may be used to submit to your insurance company for reimbursements. Many of our clients have high deductibles which they pay out of pocket anyway and want to choose a counselor for themselves vs having the insurance company choose for them.

Does Cornerstone accept Medicaid?
Unfortunately we are not an in-network Medicaid provider, but we’ve made it our goal to gather as many resources as we can for Christian counselors in the area who do accept Medicaid!

How long are the counseling sessions?
Each counseling session lasts approximately 45-minutes, and pricing applies to both individual and joint/couple/family sessions.
Elongated sessions (75-minutes) are also available at an additional cost.
For those in qualifying situations, payments can be made over time instead of at the time of service.
Our internship program offers discounted rates for those who meet with a Masters-level intern.
