Costs and Insurance
Sessions generally range in cost from $90 to $125 depending upon the length and therapy used. Payment may be made by check, cash, Visa or Master Card.
We are a preferred provider for Citrus Memorial Platinum Network, which means that once your deductable is met, First Services Administrator is billed directly and you pay only your co-pay.
For all other insurance companies payment is made at the time of service, and a coded receipt is issued for the client to submit to their health insurance company. To determine if your health care coverage will pay any part of the fee, simply call your health care insurance company and ask if they cover any “out of network” mental health counseling. In the past our clients with mental health insurance coverage have received between 50 and 100 percent reimbursement for a limited number of sessions.
ReLife Counseling Mission
ReLife Counseling exists to provide mental health care through counseling. EMDR is a proven therapeutic technique that accelerates emotional healing from traumatic occurrences. We will use EMDR as appropriate with our clients so that they may experience substantial healing in a shorter time than traditional talk therapy. We will seek to learn from and work in cooperation with local physicians, clergy, and other mental health workers to better serve the community of Citrus County and hurting communities of the world.
