Session Rates

Shannon views the agency as a service and ministry to our community. She believes in the ethics of providing quality licensed professional counseling at a session rate that fits the broadest financial income range.

Some counseling offices determine session fees based solely on the disclosed income of the client. This model is not advised for fee structures because it does not take into account many other factors that impact access to financial resources.

The standard session rate is $135 for both the initial assessment appointment and regular sessions. Out-of-network benefits may be used if your specific insurance policy allows.  Some health savings and flexible spending accounts are able to be accessed for counseling services.


(Medicare participants: effective January 1st 2024, Shannon Thomas has chosen to opt-out as a Medicare provider. Therefore, all session fees are due at the time of service and may not be submitted for reimbursement through Medicare or any related supplemental coverage. If you’d like to use your Medicare coverage for counseling services, you must locate a provider affiliated with Medicare).
