FAQs

Frequently asked questions about BetterDays policies and procedures.:

How much do sessions cost?  

Our fees vary based upon the experience and professional level of each counselor which range  between $100 – $150. You will be notified prior to your appointment what the fee is for the  counselor you’ve selected.  

Do you only counsel pastors?  

No. BetterDays Counseling serves a variety of clients with a diverse array of needs. We have  counselors on staff with experience in vocational ministry and church leadership. We offer  services tailored to those in ministry and church leadership and general counseling services for  all.  

How many sessions will I need?  

BetterDays counselors determine the number of sessions according to your individual needs  and availability. Your counselor works with you to determine the recommended minimum  number of sessions.  

Do you take insurance?  

BetterDays is a faith-based non-profit organization and does not accept insurance. Our year round fundraising extends our services to as many people as possible. If you are unable to pay  the full amount, a minimum fee can be discussed. Please contact us regarding financial  assistance.

Can I see someone immediately?  

If you are unable to reach your counselor in a timely manner, you should contact a physician, a  local emergency room, or the local police department when necessary and appropriate by dialing 911. 

What is an LPC?  

A licensed professional counselor (LPC) is an individual who has satisfied all the state  requirements for licensure (i.e., supervised counseling experience, passing a state licensing  exam). These individuals are called to abide by ethical standards deemed appropriate by the  licensing boards. 

Are your counselors licensed?  

Not all BetterDays counselors are licensed professional counselors (LPC). Some of our counselors operate solely as biblical pastoral counselors.  

Whether LPC or not, all of our counselors are trained biblical counselors who embrace a  biblical philosophy with experience in vocational counseling. All BetterDays counselors abide  by the highest ethical standards, and all counseling is conducted in a strictly confidential  setting, whether in person or online.  

How long do sessions last? 

Typically counseling visits are in 50-60 minute sessions. Sometimes counselors suggest longer  sessions if they feel it will help progress. 

What forms of payment do you take?

What is your cancellation policy?  

Your appointment time is reserved exclusively for you. It is our policy to charge a $50 fee for all  appointments for which you do not show up or for which cancellation is not made within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment.
