Counseling Services

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."

Carl Jung


Otherwise known as “talk therapy,” counseling or psychotherapy offers an opportunity for the individual to work with an objective third party in an attempt to problem-solve and/or process challenging situations.  Betty utilizes many counseling techniques and theories, including strengths based, positive psychology, emotional freedom technique (EFT) and cognitive behavioral approaches to change.  Always, the focus is on treating the whole person—body, mind, and spirit.  Counseling sessions are 50-60 minutes in length.

"The more we give away, the more is given us."

Wayne Dyer


 Betty accepts health insurance for counseling services, as well as private payments.  Not all insurance plans cover counseling and many require pre-authorization.  Contact your insurance company prior to your appointment.  Ask about deductibles, co-payments, and number of sessions authorized, as well as any limitations on providers.  Failure to do so may result in denial of payment by the insurance company.  Co-payments and deductibles are due at the time of service.  Insurance will be filed on your behalf.

If your insurance does not cover counseling, or if you choose to forgo that option, private payment is available.  A sliding fee scale based on family income and number of dependents is used to determine the fee.  Payment is due at the time of service.

To schedule an appointment, speak directly with the receptionists at Body & Soul Wellness Center:  563-556-9642.
