Bridges Counseling believes that all individuals should have access to quality support and mental health services regardless of financial variables. While publicly funded mental health services are always a viable option*, we are committed to providing reasonably priced counseling to our community within the private practice setting through our Clinical Internship Program.
If you don’t have insurance, or you find that your insurance doesn’t cover therapy,
our Low Cost Counseling option may be right for you.
How Does It Work?
Just like with private therapy, you will be placed with a qualified therapist who will create an individualized treatment plan according to your needs and circumstances. You will have the ability to meet regularly for counseling and work toward your treatment goals. All Bridges Counseling therapists are trained to help clients develop better cognitive and emotional skills and cope with various life challenges to improve their lives.
Who Will My Therapist Be?
