Email Session Rates:

We offer synchronous and non-synchronous email sessions (called email exchanges) with various rates as detailed and outlined below:

Definitions:

One email exchange is: one email generated by the client that is sent to the counselor and one counselor response (to that email) sent to the client.

One “week” is: a series of five (5) consecutive business days. The Counseling Center at CELA is not open Sundays and Mondays and does not schedule appointments these days, unless by special arrangement between client and counselor.

Synchronous means that the client and therapist are emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.

Non-synchronous means that the client and therapist are not emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.

 

Synchronous Email Rates:

Synchronous email sessions are timed in the same way that in-person sessions are timed.

  • $120 for one 60-minute session (synchronous)
  • $150 for one 90-minute session (synchronous)

 

Non-Synchronous Email Rates:

Non-synchronous email sessions are billed according to the number of email exchanges. 

 

Non-synchronous email sessions can be purchased one at a time or in Bundles. Sessions purchased as Bundles can be carried over for up to eight months.

 

Clients can order up to 3 individual Bundles per week maximum–for example, 3 of Bundle A, or 3 of Bundle B, or in combinations (such as 2 of Bundle A and 1 Bundle B)

  • One email exchange – $25
  • Bundle A – $75 (5 email exchanges)
  • Bundle B – $100 (7 email exchanges)

There is no minimum or maximum word limit to any email.

 

Scheduling Non-Synchronous Sessions:

Non-synchronous email exchanges do not have to be scheduled.

 

Non-synchronous, client-generated email exchanges are typically responded to within 2 business days during regular business hours, or according to special scheduling arrangements between client and therapist.

Insurance:

We do not currently bill insurance companies. However, we can provide receipts for services for a client to submit to an insurance company for possible reimbursement. Some types of insurance plans do cover varying portions of treatment costs in this way. The Counseling Center at CELA cannot guarantee that any client will be reimbursed by their insurance company for treatment costs.

Support Services

Not everyone is looking for therapy. Many times people are looking for support with life changes or managing their chronic illness that is not therapy.

 

The Counseling Center at CELA offers counseling and coaching supports. Counseling and coaching supports focus on positive growth for each person and strategies for moving your life in a positive direction towards optimal wellness. These supports are highly individualized and are based on your goals and needs—and making real the positive changes you’d like to see happen in your life.
