Outpatient Counseling

Care for individuals and families

You may have questions about counseling. We are here to walk you through the process.

Outpatient counseling typically involves a client (individuals, couples, families) meeting with a counselor one to two times per week, depending on the need. When you call us or request an appointment online, one of our caring and knowledgeable intake staff will walk you through the process of selecting the right clinician for your needs and scheduling your first appointment.

We are licensed to provide outpatient services in person or through telehealth in these states: Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Note that counseling through our Member Assistance Program (MAP) is available anywhere in the world. Read more about MAP. 


In-person or telehealth sessions

CFS offers in-person sessions for individuals who live near one of our clinic locations. Sessions by secure video (telehealth) can also be an option for those who find travel difficult or live too far from our clinics to meet in person. Learn more about telehealth counseling at CFS here.

Excellent care

Each of our clinics is state certified and staffed by licensed professional counselors with varying specialties. CFS is very committed to supporting the professional and spiritual growth of our counselors. Each clinician is skilled in evidence-based treatment modalities, along with an understanding of when and how to incorporate faith-based principles for better, longer-lasting outcomes.

What does counseling cost?

Fees for counseling services vary depending on several factors, such as the counselor’s level of training, the client’s insurance plan, and the method of payment.

Most insurance plans (including Medicare and Medicaid) cover mental health services, including telehealth.

Clients may also choose to pay out-of-pocket for counseling services. CFS offers a small discount for self-paying individuals who pay at or near the time of service. Learn more about paying for services here.
