frequently asked questions
There are a number of common questions that people have when considering coming to counseling. Some of them are answered below.

Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance. However, CCM offers scholarships through your church. Here is how it works: If you pay for the first two sessions, and your church agrees to pay for your third session, CCM will donate the fourth session. (Your church representative simply needs to contact our office and let us know that the church is willing to participate; and they will be billed for the third session.)
How many sessions will be needed?
There is no definitive answer to this question because there are many variables. That question can be more accurately answered after the first few meetings. The desire is to offer as many sessions as is necessary to properly address the need, and terminate the sessions as soon as it is expedient to do so.
Do you counsel children?
The approach with minor children under the age of 18 is to meet with the parents for a first session. After the meeting with the parents, a decision is then made as to what the best approach would be in bringing in the student. The most customary process is to meet with the student for two sessions and then meet with the parents and the student for a fourth session. The nature of any future sessions is discussed during the fourth session.
