Individual Counseling

process through which clients work collaboratively with a mental health counselor in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to promote their personal well being.

Relational Counseling

supports relationships of all types to recognize and resolve conflicts and improve through developing communication skills and facilitating further learning about the relationship dynamic, each other, and the self in relationship.


Youth Counseling

similar to individual counseling, it is a process in which a youth works collaboratively with a counselor in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to promote personal well being. Florida statute 394.4784 permits youth 13 years old and older to receive mental health counseling services upon their own request.

Group Counseling

a form of counseling where a small group of people meet regularly to discuss, interact, and explore issues & themes with each other and the group facilitator(s).

Financial accessibility to counseling is important!

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Federal law requires health care providers to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
